The other gourami is alive. Will be observing him. They are very shy fish and I guess since he's the only sparkler in there he might become even more reclusive but fortunately he seems to be doing fine so far. No clamped fins, no difficulty swimming.
The corydoras are all accounted for and are doing normal cory things... I'll be keeping an eye on them for the next couple of weeks. I guess I'll be doing yet another unplanned 50% water change later today.
Im hoping that it was just a weak, stressed fish. That would be the best case scenario.
