I have some frozen peas. Think those will help? He seemed just fine til a few days ago when the other two started to hang more with each other. Draco's antisocial or soemthing though I'm wondering if maybe the others are spawning or something? They both(Voldemort and Lucius) have pinkishness to them but he's completely white. Maybe i can try an algae waffer and see if he'll eat one of those.

Try an algae wafer. Otherwise put a pea in super hot water for 2 minutes (boiling water if you can, just nuke it), then in ice water for one minute. It helps if it's no salt added frozen peas but sick corys can't be choosy.

I do wonder if this has something to do with the other corys, though. They're usually so social, it's odd for him to separate himself like this.

I have a piece of algae waffer in there now(had to feed my oto too). Normally I give them frozen brine shrimp when I feed my bettas them and they go crazy for them. Idk if he ate any though.

I'm wondering if he's just lonely. I know either way i'll be getting another one soon probably tomorrow/later today.

Yeah, if the others ARE spawning and shunning him, and since corys ARE social, he really could be lonely. I wouldn't put it past him. He's probably pale from stress, just like bettas get stripes. Awww, I feel sorry for the little outcast 'cause I know how he feels. *harkens back to traumatic school days*

Surely corys can't literally die of loneliness. It must be something else. I just hope it isn't contagious for the rest of your guys.

Corys are really sensitive to changes in water chemistry and to high acidity. But of course, wouldn't the others act funny too? Unless he's been sickly all along.

I really hope it's not contagious. Maybe he was on the older side or something and his time has come.
