When you look at them head on, they look like little bunnies. Underwater bunnies. Just without the ears and they have fu-man-chus ^^

At least I think they do XD

I used to have a cory cat named Buddy. He was the best! He would at first come to see me when he heard my voice and that was awesome! Later on, he would freak out. I don't know why he did that. Nevertheless, I loved him and was sad when he swam on. SIP Buddy.

I think that's normal because my cories are not active for the most part. When I first had them, they were pretty active trying to get accustomed to their new surrounding. After that, they would like to sit there on the sand and do nothing. Sometimes they would swim to the top for air.

But during the night time when the lights are off, you see the cories more active swimming around in groups searching for food.

I have 2 Albinos, who are absolutely crazy, if you open the lid they splash you when they "jump" to the top of the water level, My 2 peppered are relatively relaxed and hang out in the back with the peppermint bristle noses and my 2 Long fin pandas are sneaky little buggers when they want to be, they will be hiding in the driftwood until you go past them with the siphon and they make a bee line for your hand, scares me everytime. I did have 2 Jullii (I think thats what they are called) as well but unfortunately lost them when I got some very aggressive Widow Tetras which I then returned to the store

Ok some bad news. After the one started showing bad symptoms, i seperated it in a floating cup, and it passed the next day :( RIP. A couple of days later i have 2 SUPER RIDICUOUSLY active cories, refusing to stop swimming lol. Just this morning, my second corie repeatedly buried himself FULLY under the sand. I didnt see him, so i checked everything, untill i saw his tail sticking out of my sand, as he was head down tail up. I seperated him in the floating cup, and gave him a pellet which i dont think he touched. He is breathing VERY HEAVILY, like he ks oing to have a heart attack. He has been doing this for a while now, and im very concerned. My other corie doesnt seem to have a care in the world, is eating and growing fatter each day, and being active.

I am not sure what to do. My ph is stable, and ammonia is under 0.02 ppm.

The one that recently died looked like it could have had ich, but i couldnt really tell on its light plates.

to reduce disease should i do a 75% water change? Im REALLY WORRIED.

Thank you
