Well had to take that blind cory cat back...sadly, He would kinda stroke out, and just float there for a bit, and the barbs would pic at his fins, and he would also get stuck to the filter intake...kinda bummed to take him back.
Also thinking about switching my barbs out as well, I knew they would be kinda aggressive but wow, a little to much. They are picking on my cory cats to much for my liking.
Sorry to hear about your special cory!! I have some very young celestial peal daino and they just are getting brave enough to come see me when I walk around, I noticed one has a white eye like it is blind on one side. He acts normal otherwise though.
Also, you should get some anubias nana to place around the small rocks at the base of the large rocks, it would look great and is an easy plant. Stays a manageable size for a 10 gal too.
