My thought is that perhaps it decided to clean the intake tube and made its way down to the bottom of the tube where it encountered the water suction and suffered some internal damage. Water parameters remained unchanged.
I'm sorry to hear that If it's just physical damage, though, at least the others won't be affected, right?

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'
