Well, I'd recommend rethinking your stocking, as the tank seems overstocked. Angelfish grow far too large for a 12 gallon tank. Also, flame gourami are quite territorial amongst themselves and likely picked on the weakest one until he died. I would not keep more than one in a 12 gallon tank, as there is not enough territory for more.

My guess is your tank has built up some water quality issues. Just because the water is "crystal clear" does not mean it doesn't have toxins in it that are hurting your fish. We're going to need to know your exact water parameters, especially ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.

Please read the below link and provide us with the information it asks for so that we can help you further:
