Molly dead for seemingly no reason

So I lost a male black molly today for seemingly no reason. They were all fine when I checked them before work this morning, they all ate 9 hours later and now he is dead. Could it be because there was a decently large male in the tank with him? A couple of days ago I reset up the 29 gallon removing its filter from the 55 and placing it there, would this have stressed him out that much?

20 Gallon Planted Guppy tank. Amazon Sword, Dwarf Hairgrass, Cardinalis.
55 Gallon -1 BN Pleco, 1 High Fin Syndontis, 1 Oto, ~18 Kenyi Cichlids

I have never had much luck with Black mollies, i have had 6 in the last year . . . . i have 0 now. They die for no reason , 2 got ich and 1 got bullied. All the other fish in the tank are fine and have lost 0 in the last 18 months.

I have heard that the black mollies grow a lot slower than other colors, how true that is i dont know. But it does seem to be that they are different.
