That's what I thought. When I first noticed his eyesight was failing, he kept nose-diving straight into the lava rock while the others would dodge it.

I didn't wanna euthanize just because he can't see, but he looked so miserable trapped in a few inches of tank. Was telling a friend of mine about it when the other two figured out how to help him school with them. They would softly tap his gill cover thingies to tell him it was time to turn around. They helped him sift around the whole tank that way too. Of course, that night, I was all "I love these fish."

That right there is why I love them so much.

I remember when I first got one and at the time did not realize fish have little personalities much like our usual domesticated pets. I quickly realized that the "bottom feeder" not only picked up trash but also put on a show. So adorable they break the cute barrier.

I have 4 albinos, I'm adding more as soon as I can. 2 have been through hell with fin rot that ate all of there fins(fishy mama fail) I've had them for going on the 3rd year... And 2 I add about 8 months ago. They started in a 10g and moved to a 55g they are loving the 55 with the space to swim. Today I added a really big bubbler when I did the water change . I have to hob filters so I hadn't added one yet because I felt the 2 hobs were enough flow to oxygenate the water. I added
This one that came with the 55 as reallllly long bubbler to see if I would see a change in the fish and the cories absolutely love the bubbles. Love them. They swim through it constantly. I imagine it feels good on there fleshy bodies these are my two little loves who's fins have not grown back entirely. I don't know if they ever will but I know they will live the rest of there fishy lives out in the best most Pristine water conditions I can give them. I would never ever keep fish that threatened my Cory's because I love them.

That was a reference to an SNL short that shall not be named :P

My big fat green cory was getting that "stuff" again on the left injured point (not sure what to call that) so I put hydrogen peroxide on it again. But apparently the fin was so damaged that this just came off leaving a small point. He seems like he feels much better now that it is cleaned up.

I cannot find the 1/2" albino cory. It sickens me to think about it but it may have accidentally gotten into the water I was changing out.
