Fish stuck in another fishís mouth

My red devil has attempted to eat a Cory cat. But the Cory cat has been stuck in the red devilís throat for about 12 hours now with only the tail fins sticking out of the red devilís mouth. Iím not sure how to help her. Any advice is appreciated!!!

Found this on another forum site. Looks like you need to operate if it doesnt come out on its own.


Corys have barbs in their fins, so this kind of thing is dangerous to both fish. If you have more corys i would seperate them from the larger fish to remove temptation.
