Corydoras

I have threee corydoras and im slightly confused on as to why they lay down on the sand bed for 2 hours then start becoming active then do the same again. Is that normal?

I have a bunch of trilineatus that just chill out until feeding as well.

My Panda Corys are active at feeding, and after the lights go out.

That's just corys being corys. Amusing little beings.

We have six panda cories. Sometimes I have to stare just to make sure they are breathing and still alive. Love watching them when they are busy though!
