clown loach hyperventilating

I recently added two 4-inch loaches to my tank which alreacy has four smaller loaches. Thew new ones seemed to be doing great, when I noticed one seemed to be hyperventilating (very rapid gill movement). After about 3 days it passed away. Now I'm seeing the same hyperventilation in the second new loach. I don't see any other negative indicators. Is this a stress reaction? Does anyone have any ideas about what could be causing this? Any thoughts helpful. Thanks
