2 dead clown loaches overnight

I have a 55gal with 4 clown loaches, 6 tiger barbs, 6 gold barbs, and 3 cory cats, and a medium yellow snail. The tank is filtered by a penguin bio wheel system and a mangum hot canister filter. 2 days ago i had to move the tank so i drained half the water and moved it then replaced the water. The fish seemed fine after the move and ate well last night. I found 2 dead this morning. There is no visible damage of body, gills, or fins. The remaining 2 clowns seem to be doing fine. What could have caused the death of the clowns. The tank has been set up for about 3 months with 20% water changes weekly. The loaches are all about 4". Any help would be greatly appreciated
