I lost all 6 of my albino corys when I started introducing female bettas into the 29-gal cycled tank. I used the corys as fish-in cyclers, and they were normal, active fish. After about 6 girls, they went ballistic! They swam randomly, frantically, up and down rather than across the bottom as they usually do. Then, over the course of 3 days, each day, 2 died suddenly- like a heart attack!
I want more corys. I tore down that tank 100% after I lost a betta; then all the snails died. EVERYTHING got tossed (except fish) & I have built it back up. It sits here now; lit, cycled, heated, filtered with only plants and cherry shrimp. I'm terrified to stock it again. The remaining girls are in my 10-gal "hospital tank", and have been for 5 weeks.
