By any chance did you use salt in the tank?
Or medicated?.
Did the die in a short timespan, or over a period of time?

How can he feed dead loaches well? They don't eat much once dead.

Sorry about your loaches but it's difficult to figure out what might have happened when we don't know what size tank they were in, was the tank fully cycled or if you had any ammonia, nitrites or nitrates. Did you use a medication.....etc.

It looks to me as you have a lot of stock in both the tanks you have listed. On tanks fully stocked as yours are, you have to be checking to make sure you haven't over-taxed the bio load and gotten an ammonia spike.

Can you give details so we can give answers?

lol, what i meant was in the future feed them well and properly. a platy would die if it was fed the wrong food, so same for a loach
