Black cory death

1 of the 5 black corys is dying without any physical signs. I found him on his back in the plants, I tried pulling him out thinking hes dead, and he swam sway doing barrel rolls. He's been the runt of the 5, and I think it's either swim bladder or internal parasites, his stomach looks a bit sunken, head is bigger than stomach. I know without a video it's hard to say, but everyone else is doing perfectly fine. I'm guessing it's one of those mystery deaths...

Sorry to hear about your Cory . I've had corys that did the same thing and yes, they died.

It was a few years ago but if I remember correctly, the rest of them were fine. As a precaution I would just make sure your water is healthy and be super diligent about water changes and quality food. I made the mistake of feeding one of my fish a housefly and it ended up killing him.
