I'd be very grateful if someone would give me some advice. I have been keeping clown loaches for three years with no problem whatsoever. Then, three days ago my ten loaches stopped coming forward at feeding times. In fact, I have not seen them at all for the past three days. And earlier today, in the morning, I found one of them dead!

I have kept these ten clown loaches sound and happy for three years and suddenly they start hiding and one shows up dead; what´s wrong?

My tank is big, about 750 liters. Besides the ten loaches (they are still quite small, a little longer than a match box) I keep two African knife fish, some five very small catfish and a gibbiceps. These fish have been living in the same tank for at least two years now. No new additions.
