What's killing kuhlis?

I've got a 75 gallon tank, clay covered in sand and pebbles for a substrate. Some real wood, all live plants. The organic matter keeps the pH down at about 6.2. I have a ton of loaches in it - clowns, angelicus, yoyos, horseface, weather loaches, sids, a schistura, some hillstreams, and both regular banded and black kuhlis. All of them are rather happy, and healthy. There's plenty of hiding spots, i give them a varied diet. I've had zero loach deaths in the tank, except for the regular banded kuhli loaches. The black kuhlis do just fine. But every single regular kuhli i put in dies. Some in a couple days, some after a few weeks.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could cause this? Obviously, the conditions in my tank are fine for the bulk of loaches
