Salt and pepper Cory odd behaviour

Today my Cory was swimming near the top on it's back and being really weird. I tested ammonia and nitrite and all is fine. I lost 2 apple snails overnight yet they were fine yesterday. I'm goof to do a pwc right away and test again in the evening an morning. Any ideas why a Cory would swim upside down?

It could be a swim bladder issue. I had a cory that had problems like this. Unfortunately I couldn't save it. I don't remember what I did to try to help it. I would do some research on swim bladder disorders.

Ok. Just keep an eye on him. Mine was high maintenance when he was sick.

Just did a pwc. So much fun, monitoring them now, hope that's all that was needed, I hate how it stirs up gunk when refilling. Any methods on how not to stir up debris?

Nope, sorry. I currently have that problem too. Reading back over my last post, it sounds silly. ALL sick fish are high maintenance. lol

Put a deep glass bowl or glass pitcher in the tank and run the water into it. It will flow out of the bowl slower creating less turbidity. You have to use something heavy or it will keep tipping over.
