why did the clown loaches died?

Over the past 2 months I have had 6 clowns die, one at a time. There is no visual sign of disease and they act normal. Than they get sick and die within the same day. First they loose there swimming ability than die soon after. The most recent one was yesterday he just ate with a big belly than when I looked in the take he was stiff and on his side. He died the next hour so I took a close look at him and it seems like his poop hole had a red spot. Not like the others. Could it be a parasite or something they ate?

Please help
