Dead Pleco this am

I'm not having a good day. Did a water change this morning and noticed that my Pleco didn't seem to care that I was messing around in there. Turns out he was dead. I fed him algae waffs, didn't notice anything odd or new. I'm bummed. RIP Dr. Eggman

Yes, well the kids (6 1/2 year old twin boys) are HUGE Sonic and Mario fans. Huge.

I replaced the Pleco with a new one and it too died 2 days later. What's the deal?? All the other fish are fine. I even have about 20 platy fries in there and they are fine. I though Plecos were pretty hardy
