Down to 3,Rasboras and Danios

So I posted before how i was losing my danios like flies. Well I am down to 3 of them. Also down to 3 of my rasboras. I dont know whats killing them. I am guessing NTD,but I dont really know. Strange though,my neon tetras are fine. I only lost 2 since Ive had them. I havent lost any of the pencilfish. Wondering if its bad stock?

I did get the danios from several different places,but most likely the same supplier. The rasboras came from two diff stores,but again same supplier probably. I had 4 young rasboras who were fine for the longest time, I added 3 adults and they were gone fast! Do older rasboras kill off each other? Wondering if thats the case for them.

The rasboras are in a 14 gallon with 7 julii corys,cycled of course. The danios are in a 38 gallon with 10 pepppered corys, (lost one recently). Cycled as well.

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

Swim free

All my past fishies

I don't know if harlequin rasboras kill each other...i doubt it. I know that older rasbora espeis do not kill each other, at least not in my experience with them. I had a few older ones, added some younger ones, and they all get along fine. Wish i could be of more help

Have you checked water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate; plus pH. B.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
