  1. Default Please help me figure out who is killing my Cory's


    0 Not allowed!
    4 of my 6 Cory's have been wacked out and I just don't get it, 3 of them were fine yesterday, they mind their business but they are the only ones. It is either the large male Odessa or my 2 Rainbow sharks, I feel bad because I have 2 Cory's left but no other tank t put them in. Any suggestions. Someone had also took out my female cherry barb but I cannot remember if it was before or after the Rainbow sharks came along.

    My tank consists of

    6 Odessas
    25 Neons tetras
    6 Denison barbs
    1 Cherry barb
    2 Rainbow sharks
    and the 2 Cory's that are left :-(

    Rainbow has my vote, IM[limited]E Odessa don't really do much more than chase.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    It is ONLY happening at night when the lights go out. I have never seen any of the Cory's be chased by any of their tankmates. I will see if I can find the RS's a home and hope it helps.

    My votes with 850R, Rainbow's can be mean suckers.

    How do you even get two rainbows to work in the same tank?

    You better get rid of those rainbow sharks or you won't be having those neons, either.

    I was hoping that with a 125 and plenty of wiggle room they might be alright, APPARENTLY I was wrong. I had 1 rainbow shark a few years back and he was great, never messed with anyone and never had any loss.

    forgive me if I'm wrong but is it possible that you are having an ammonia spike. Cory are the only bottom dwellers you have and normally the bottom dwellers go first.
