    Sounds like you have too many fish in your aquarium, and not enough water changes are done in combination with not a large enough filter to handle the waste produced.

    What size is the aquarium?

    What filters do you have?

    What is your aquarium maintenance schedule?

    What kind of suckerfish? Most if not all kinds get too big for a 10 g I believe, also what are your water parameters? Could be a bacteria bloom from the extra fish. Is your tank cycled?
    Edit: do 50% water changes a couple times a day until water clears up
