What are your water parameters, Joe? I assume you bought them from Walmart or whatever petstores were known for their bad reputation?

Poor water quality and internal parasites are often the culprits.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Try lowering the nitrates to 10-20 ppm. What is your tank maintenance schedule?
