I started out with a school of 10 now I'm down to 7. I have them in a 50 gallon aquarium with lots of cover. They are fighting relentlessly. The 3 that died were beaten up. I have one big one that is bullying all the rest.

Is there anything I can do to prevent anymore deaths? Can food or temprature lead to agression?

I feed them twice a day and the temp is set at 80 dig. I like to keep the temp high for my plecos.

I'd catch the bully but I think another would just take his place.

What color are their noses. It isn't a guarante, but Rummies are known to lose some color if water parameters are decaying. Are they a nce RED?

Temp and girls make sense.

That's with a different species; Rummynosed TETRAS- Hemigrammus bleheri.

Though I wouldn't be surprised if these may do the same, as many fish fade in poor water quality.
