Rummy noses are known to have problems like this, unfortunately. Possibly you added more at once than filter could handle. Good luck.whartvare tank parameters, ammonia and such.

Any tbh but if you want a tight schooling fish like the rummies I would go with bleeding heart they don't school as tight or harlequin Rasboras, but you only have a 110 liter I wouldn't go to much more

Cories are hard to take care of and require very pristine water, one of the few fish that do not handle nitrates, they recommend a planted tank, cannot disturb the substrate a lot when doing a water change


Just remember if you go with schooling fish they recommend 6 but the low number is 3 of that same fish meaning you have to watch the bio load because you will have min 11 max 14 if you go full 6 which is recommended as they do better.

Do not get barbs, rummies are good in a tank with calm friendlies companions

Found some usual info while looking for tank Size requirements

About your rummie turning pale

When the fish is stressed, its red coloring gets pale significantly. The fish’s flesh fin and fluke are whitish, when the other fins are completely transparent

I'd just like a bottom dweller to make it more interesting

I would start getting live low Tech plants abs get the scale going then worry about the fish tbh, that way if there is something wrong with the tank (illness, water parameters, parasites) you will only have 8 fish to worry about not 14, I don't know if you're into the live pants and drift wood look but fish like their tanks to look kind their natural habitat
