You should provide a few more details, such as your water parameters, how long you've had these fish, what other behavior you've noticed, ie: stressed, not eating, aggression, etc. If they have other tank mates that could also be helpful (along with their condition).

Welcome to Reef2Reef!

The second one that is dying has definitely been attacked by another fish. I can't tell about the first one, but one scenario would be: the two damselfish have been fighting, with the second one catching the brunt of the injuries. He got a few good licks in though, so the first one has some damage as well.

What other fish do you have in the tank?
I try to avoid multiple damselfish, even in a larger tank they may fight.
