Do'n the spiral stroke

I brought home a rainbow shark and 3 bristlenose plecos on Sunday. Monday afternoon the shark just all of a sudden started doing the spiral stroke and then died about 10 minutes later. I did a water check and the nitrites were just slightly elevated and I did a 50% water change. Tonight, Tuesday, one of the plecos started doing this! The nitrites and amonia are both at zero, what else would be the cause of this? I'd sure hate to lose more fish! :-(
