Exclamation bloat maybe? need treatment options!!!

so far in my 55 gallon ive had 3 fish die but when i notice them, they have large bloated stomachs. by the time i notice a fish showing symptoms they die in a few hours. idk what it is how to treat or anything. i am not feeding them today for whatever reason, i feel like it may help somehow idk. please help and give me some ideas on how to save my fish bc i will be very upset if i lose all my fish

Fish tanks are like potato chips, you can't have just one!!!

Not that I've seen I tested today and nitrates are at 40ppm so way better than it was. Doing another change tomorrow. I didn't feed them last night to help with stress and turned my heater up

Whats your current temp? I'm not sure heat will help anything unless you see signs of Ich or something. I'd just work on stable temp and water changes to get nitrate down. Again unless there are other signs you may have told me and I forgot
