Dying off

I have 5-6 oriental goldfishes. All in a sudden, they start to die off. Now I only have 2 fishes left. I have notice that before they die. Their stomach was bloated. Can someone help me please.

4 Flowerhorn (1 in a 55gal, 2 with a divider in a 10gal, and 1 in a 20gal)
3 Goldfish sharing tank with 3 Male Guppy and 6 Female 10gal. Hope of getting more later on.

I think several members are on vacation and not around, but hopefully some are that will be able to help. I've no experience with goldfish so i wouldn't want to guess. You should provide more detail on the tank and water parameters, what you feed them, how often, etc. Completeing this form (taken from the disease section) would help:

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]

Do your goldfish have scales that give a pine-cone appearance?
Anything about water quality and tank size?
How often are you feeding them? I only feed mine once a day for 2 minutes and they are healthy and active.

It may be a Swimbladder problem and they are not getting enough oxygen.

I love my 8 goldies
