Fish Mystery

I have a 55 gallon tank. One good size orange
finned loach (Botia modesta) along with a couple of catfish, a handful of tetras and a few
Chinese algae eaters. I tried to add five Platys
but every morning found one had died. I thought
it might have been the ph level but wouldn't they
all die at once? Now I'm wondering about the loach. Given their nocturnal nature and the fact that all these deaths happen after the lights out, it's looking bad for the loach. Other ideas?
