Barbells gone on julii cory
If anyone can take a look, it seems one of my julii cory cats is missing the barbells. She is hiding out in a corner, hasn't come out to eat with the others and isn't bothered by my attempts at taking a photo. She was definitely fine last night swimming with the others and and eating wafers (I feed the cories in a shallow dish to make sure they're never hungry). My gravel is rounded so I didn't think there would be an issue and all of my other tank inhabitants are peaceful.
Is there anything I can do? The photos were the best I could do...

Aeonflame, my parameters are 0 ammonia / 0 nitrites / 10 nitrates (have never tested above 10) & I vacuum 1/2 the gravel weekly and skim the top of the other 1/2 with my 50% pwc.

I've had her since 12/05/12, she spent 4+ weeks in qt then moved her to main tank. I'm positive that she had the barbels before. I'd put money on her having them as of yesterday. I always do a daily head count and make sure everyone is out and about and I didn't notice any issues yesterday.
She has at least moved to the other side of the tank near their little feeding dish...can they eat without the barbels?
