    Sorry for your loss

    I have never heard of silver dollars killing other fish... maybe other members can chime in here

    If you mean the sailfin pleco, they do get very big and are known to suck the slime coat of other fish particularly angels, discus and rays
    Could be they tried to do that.

    Lets see what others say

    Interesting mix of fish!

    So you are finding dead fish, maybe half eaten?
    If so, how do you know they are being killed?
    Maybe not dying of other causes and being eaten after?

    How big is the tank?
    What is the total stocking?
    What filtration do you have?
    How long has it been running?
