I have read that mashed up peas being fed to Mollies can fix the swim bladder problem so i tried to feed her by just putting it in the tank but she didn't want to eat it so i caught her in a net and put some mashed peas in there and she ate some of it, I will do this daily and hope for a improvement

What else could this be? I went from yesterday morning having one fish with what i thought was a swim bladder issue to today having that ones friend that never left her alone get lethargic over the night and die this morning and that fish was happy and active before i went to sleep last night chasing the to zebra Danios and red fin tetras around the tank like usual, eating, just being a happy fish BUT was kinda nudging the one with the swim bladder kinda like worried for her. Could that have stressed her out to the point of death?
