I got a 150 gallon with 4 tropheus moliro at 4 inches and about 12 of their babies about 1 inch big. They live peacefully with 10 demasoni cichlids. In the last week I lost 5 babies. What's going on?

Water parameters are mint and no sign of illness on any fish. Lost 2 demasoni on bloat tho in the last 2 months.

Any advice what is happening to the fry and why they are dying?
Thanks

do a water test and give us a reading of all the water parameter. GH/KH/PH, anmonia, Nitrite and nitrate. The fact that fish dying of bloat suggest they are in stress.

Tropheus are not for beginner hobbyist. They are one of the few that gets stress easy and bloat.

ok so here it is. The tests are done with hagen nutrafin drop test kit.
Nitrite 0.1 Nitrate 0.4 ammonia 0.3 PH 8.1 GH at 7 drops so 140 KH at 8 drops so 80.

I thing the GH might be a little bit on the low side. What do you think?
