I had 2 neon tetras and 1 cory cat die so far.

Yester day i did a 25% water change like i do every sunday. Today I woked up to a dead neon tetra. Since this morn i had 1 of my cory die and another tetra. THe Ph is 7.3 and water temp is around 79 degree. Everything seems to be the same as when i first set the tank uo last year. The tank holds 2 anglefish and 2 other cory cats and 2 more red eye tetra. What could be going on

The first Tetra to die stomach looked like it was eaten by another fish.

Not to my attention. They seem like they all do very well together.

We need a bit more info on this. First to confirm: the tank has been running for a year, with 25% water changes every week. When this occurred, the tank held 2 angelfish, 2 red eye tetra, 1 neon tetra and 2 albino corys.

What size is the tank?
Did you use a dechlorinator (water conditioner) with the water change?
Aside from the conditioner (if used), is any other substance being added to the tank water?
Did you notice any unusual behaviour after the water change?
Is the tap water pH at 7.3 like the tank, or close?
