This is odd but regular experience that I have had with my new tank:
Fish such as plecos,platys,blue morphs never survive for more than a month.The worst case has been with the plecos,
This I write because a day before dying the fish look extremely healthy and eat normally too but die without any known reason.They were in a community tank,so any water irregularity will affect all fish.
I have so far lost 5 plecos in 3 months and the same number of platys and morphs in the same time.
Anybody faced such a situation before?????????

Please give more tank details, size, substrate, filter, fishes etc.
Pleco are very hardy fish, there must be someting in your tank that is poisioning them, some ornament, plecos graze on all things in tank so if any thing if not pleco safe, it will hurt them.
Also in a new tank, they are shy and often do not get enough to eat. Give them some sinking food.
I have never kept livebearers with chclids, so it might be a compatability problem.
BTW which one of your multpile personalties in on the line , it is hard to know who are we talking with.

No Sandeep itz not the compatibilty problem,newayz im chris the bad boy as u guys suppose i am.The livebearers ive kept have done very well with african cichlids,and as sumone mentioned itz not the cycle problem as well.Thatz the reasson for my post,the fish i mentioned are very hardy and i ensure they arent of inferior quality when bought.These are the only fish im having problem with.I would suggest Sandeep to try keepin swordtails and african cichlids together,theres no problem at all.I keep on bragging this statement PLZ DO NOT OVERHYPE FISH REPUTATION.Actually the swordtails have done well in my cichlid tank than in the all barbs tank previosly.The africans havent killed a single swordtail nor torn their fins.Ive gone a bit offtopic,but i ensure even the plecos are fed well,because currently i do have loaches that are doing well
and yes the hiding places too are numerous.I will try keepin morphs again but it will be a gamble.So,ant answers guyz?????????
