White spot mate.

The two you gave me had white spot, luckily I've managed to nurse them back to good health and they are pulling through ok.

Check your water parameters mate - get a test kit and give us the answers to what liljohn has posted.

blood worm is no good for pbass, especially at small sizes.

What do you mean water is perfect? what are your parameters? namely ammonia and nitrite. What temp is the tank at? how long has the tank been setup?

The feeders could have been carrying something but its hard to say

Its all good mate, Pbass are tough to raise... you're not the first person to have mass losses for seemingly no reason.

You're best bet is gonna be to get a test kit and start keeping close attention to your parameters. They generally prefer slightly higher temps as well 28+ degrees so if you've had fluctuating temps in this cold weather it could have been enough to lower their immune systems.
