Personnally I would just remain patient until your lights arrive. I am really not sure if matters or not - I suspect it doesn't. If you wait you can take time to think out your hard scape and plan...

What is the foot print and height?

It's best if they have length to swim as opposed to height (depth).

I have a feeling that these would not be the best fish for your tank.

Cory's can be very sensitive, add to that the fact your adding them to such a small environment, I would bet that an amonia spike is causing your problems.

I have a very healthy group of Cories using Florite; sand may be ideal but not necessary.

Most probably a water quality issue as stated above.

Suggestion: Use up all your florish and go with dry ferts. You will save many, many dollars and it is quite easy to mix your own stuff up. There is lots of info on using dry ferts around.
