One of my julii cory cats seems to be ill. He lives in a 55 gallon aquarium within a shoal of 6 julii cories. One of them has always stayed away from the rest and I assume it is the same one
Filter Fluval u4 internal
6 bleeding heart tetras
6 julii cory cats
3 zebra loaches
4 cherry barbs
2 honey gouramis
Tanks has been set up for almost 3 months
Doing 30-40% pwc
per week. Did one last saturday
They were all acclimated correctly but they have been in the tank for a month now
They are on a sand sustrate and yet since I have got them he has lost his barbels and now has none left. He hangs around on his own sitting on a leaf and occasionally hovering in the middle of the tank completely randomly.
I have had them for a month so he is obviously not just settling in. He has no obvious signs of illness besides his seperation from the group and no barbels.
The water quality is fine and all of the other fish are fine
Is he ill? Could he be being bullied? Could he just be like this forever?
