white patches... depending on what they look like could be a few things, Fungus, or just other spots from the other fish trying to eat him... do you use salt in your tank, and wat are your water paramiters?

this is a great site to detect what type of problem killed your fish plus it gives you remedies

I think this is best site for fish problems on the entire internet

hope it helps

I know the feeling of the mysterious killer, I lost 5 platies a few weeks ago..one day fine, within 2 days, wiped out 5 platies, and the next day, the tank was back to normal

I guess it's like the heart attack in people...you just never know when it will hit, you know? sorry for your loss, I can only hope the site I gave you helps with your remaining fish or for future problems
