Sorry to hear. Sometimes these things just seem to happen for no clear reason.

Sorry to hear this Boxer.... rainbows are prone to mouth fungus infections and it is something to watch out for.... HOWEVER.... persist with rainbows and remember that malachite green is your best friend in this sort of situation!... Topical application is best as well as treating the whole tank.

Nose mans are really renowned for it but with topical AND general treating about a week I'd say... Two at the outside!
