Just had a Cory Elegans die, very suddenly. I hadn't noticed any problems. It came to the surface 3 times to get air. Banged against the ledges of the aquarium (euro-ledges), so I will learn to keep the water level lower. But I don't think that caused the death or marks. She (?) seems swollen and has a single blood spot on her underbelly, and some blood marks on her side. The tank parameters are all good, PH is 6.4, Temp 75-76. I had one die a week ago, which I think was from an attack by a rogue pencil fish, as it had lost its tail. I posted a thread on that, but no comments. I have had these corys for 5 months, no problems. They have been feeding happily. The rogue suspect is in an isolation tank and I haven't seen any other pencil fish behave as aggressively. Any ideas what caused this?I read somewhere that it could be red blotch disease. If so, why the pierce mark in the belly? Do I need to add a treatment for the other Cory elegans and jullii?

Should have added, it's a 100 litre tank with sand.
