fish stress

I think my cories are dying of stress because of other fish, is this possible with the senerio i lay out.
I have cories and some striped raphael catfish, that don't do anything against each-other but the cories keep dying off. I believe this is because of stress, when the striped raphael catfish come out to eat they go real fast all over the bottom of the aquarium pushing every thing out of the way to get to the food. This is where i belive the stress comes in for the cories, is it possible that all the movement from the stripped raphael catfish stressing them out to death.

Might be a combination of both. How big are your src? The cories may be stressed/intimidated by the size so they aren't eating.

Did you recently introduce them to your tank?

Try keeping the lights off for 24-48 hours. I've personally never had Cories be intimidated by other fish but I suppose it's a possibility.
