My Clowns are dying

Hi !
I bought 2 clown loaches a month ago. 5 days ago I found one of them just lying on the bottom of my tank. It didn't move then I caught it. I put it a a breeding tank, feed it well, but it didn't want to eat, it died 2 days later.
The other one was swimming around all the time the other was dying, so I thought it had out competed the other for food. But today I found it too lying on the bottom !
What is wrong, the water or is some of my other fish making them suffer ???
I have a 250L/55 gallon tank with:
1 colisa ialia
1 Labeo Bicolor
16 Pharacheirodon axelrodi
2 Trichogaster leeri
4 Ancistrus sp.
3 Otocinclus Affinis
10 Acanthophthalmus kuhlii
3 Epalzeorbyncbus siamensis

and the clown ofcourse
