Even filtered, plecos are pretty poopy if I remember correctly and they probably had an ammonia spike. Lucky your other two are fine..

I have to agree - I suspect that your plecos probably died from the amount of ammonia in the tank, and you betta decided the bodies looked good. I've had fish die that look as if they have been brutally murdered, but it has been natural causes that killed them and other fish that mutilated the corpses. 6 plecos, even babies, in a 6 gallon tank, is way too much and could terrible effects (as you have seen), including permanent stunting of their growth.
