Unhappy My baby is dying :(

My poor albino Cory is on his side just lying there breathing He's been eating good and not been showing any signs of illness just when i wake up to check the tank I see him lying there helpless. Can i do anything for him. His other albino Cory friend died this week I don't know why the albinos are just suddenly dying off.

He's in a 10 gallon heated tank 77 degree's, filtration, aeration, he has 3 tank mates 2 emerald cories and 1 betta fish.

He just passed on I gave him his last meal he seemed to enjoy eating his shrimp pellet before he died and started swimming a bit But he just slowly stopped breathing.From what my friend told me he was a little over 2 years old. I tried my best to keep you happy till the very end my little fighter I'm so sorry.


RIP no name

For Cory catfish need 20 gallon and more albino Cories albinos do not school with emerald the temp might need ajstment did you add any medications or aquarium salt also a massive water change might help.

In a 29 gallon you could have like 5 emerald cories your Betta would love that big of a tank and maybe some otos and if your Betta is peaceful a school of neon tetra but is your betta a male or female if female in a 29 gallon you could have 5 bettas if male be careful when choosing tank mates.

I have mine in a 37 g, he is all alone and has taken ownship of the place. There is nothing to fear in putting them in large tanks. The bigger the better. I want to thow some ottos in there to help with the diatoms a bit but i am consearned. After all they too love caves and plants and i fear Piou wont like to share.

Sorry for your loss m8.

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:
