My Sterbai Cory Cats keep dying off and i dont know why. My water parameters are fine all my other fish are healthy. I did lose a angelfish as well but it came from a friends tank who he kind of abandoned so i expected it to die. But i dont understand why the corys did. I had them for about two weeks and all they did was swim up and down against the glass for two weeks now they're all missing and ive found two of them dead.
I also have the same problem, I had 10 albino corys and 2 already die, all they do is swim up and down the glass, they only stop to eat "sometimes" if you find an answer I would appreciate passing on the info.
Thank you Micah,,
@Martin Do you do water changes? If you do how many times per month? Do you use a water conditioner for the new water if you use tap water from the municipal/ city source? Many reasons the fish could affected.
Yes, I do water changes every weekend religiously, and I utilize Prime for the new water, I was thinking maybe the fertz I use for the plants, I use the Seachem brand but I follow the instructions.
My water parameters are good, PH is 6.8 in that tank I have Blue, Gold and Bolivian Rams, is a 40 gallon and I have 2 of each plus the now 8 albino corys.
That's what I was thinking, all of them are the same size, maybe from the same mom, probably a congenital problem, I will raise the temp to 82, Petsmart told me they will replace them, I bought that many since they had them for $1.00/ea.
I do water changes once a week. MY water parameters are perfect Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate all 0 PH is about 7.4 i have 5 angels a betta 4 australian rainbows 6 zebra danios and a bushy nose starry pleco. Every other fish is doing fine. out of the 6 cory cats only one is alive. My best guess is they just werent getting enough food
