Whats the tank size they are in? Can you post your water parameters and tank mates please. We need a little more information before we can help you, and a picture would be awesome too!

Hows long ago did you get these fish? Did you cycle the tank?

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

Chinese algae eater could also be the problem.they don't play nice with others sometimes. They are not from china, they only do a fair job of eating algae when they are young and as they mature they can become aggressive towards other fish. It could be wreaking havoc after lights out of an evening.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
