If you can, take a look at him with a magnifying glass. Does he have any lesions? Are any of the other fish acting odd? How long have you had him?

You should just leave hem alone, thats torture... Corys are nocturnal and normally they are not very active during the day. Give them cover so they can hide from the other fish and have shade.

Why do you annoy your corys with those pliers, even in other videos? Would you like if somebody would do that to you? They should take your fish away from you!! Offcourse they are stressed out!! What do you expect...

Catfish are nocturnal. They like to sleep all day. They will come out for feeding but try to keep it on the same schedule so they dont stress out more. Give him something to sleep in during the day that is cover from the light. It can be as simple as a pvc pipe. I recommend some kind of bottom layer. Cory's love to scavenge through it. Also, they do good in groups. IMO this is 5 minimum.

On top of this though, he isnt looking good. Have you done a decent water change recently?

When mine died (think it was parasites) they would go to the top like they were trying to get air, then they would just float back down like a dead leaf. They only lasted for a few days after I noticed them doing this.

But they were eating and swimming around just fine for months before this happend.

Not every fish makes it. Hopefully the future corys do better. He might've had an internal parasite or disease that is hard to identify or treat. Sometimes you just gotta let them go.

crud having the vary same problem with one of my corydoras paucaradatus. but not to that extent. No lesions and a great planted home with plenty of hiding places. It only happens after i feed them. he has been like this for 2 weeks. Everyone else in the tank is fine. Looks like i will go from 10 to 9 soon.
