They're lonely and stressed.

I have two albinos at the moment and personally I don't think they're stressed. Although I will be getting another albino soon, I got two because if I got two many I may have had an ammonia strike. My fish though seem fine. They sleep, zip around like mad men and scavenge for food and eat.
Although I have no experience with cories, they seem fine to me.
Do you know a lot about cories? I don't think you mean to, but the way you have spoke in your post seems rather insulting. People probably won't listen to what your saying.
Prehaps give some advice directly to this people with only 1 or 2 cories that are freaking out. Tell them that their cories are probably stressed or lonely and the best thing to do is to get some of their own kind.
Anyway this thread is more to discuss how awesome cories are! Let's not be condescending or mean. Some cories may actually enjoy being alone or with different species. We will never know until we can read animals minds or hold a proper conversation with fish.
