unexplained cory deaths - even with experienced aquarists

Cories are actually another fish I have trouble with upon introduction which is odd because they are such a hardy fish. I actually stopped buying cories at petco and petsmart because everytime I do, one or two die withing a day unless they are the indestructable bronze/albino cory. When I buy cories at real fish stores, they do great from the beginning. A lot has to do with the quality of fish you initially purchase.
it seems pandas are sensitive - and die unexpectedly and mysteriously

I'm guessing it doesn't have so much to do with the actual species but more with who is breeding them and if they are being treated well. I have a friend who got some remarkably hardy pandas, I've had success with Juli's, but then others who I've heard to be hardier end up being more fragile. Go figure :|

I experienced just the opposite in regard to albino's. Albino's were my first cory's and they expired about a month after I got them. I figured it was due to having put them into an immature tank. I asked around and got some better information:

Cory's, like most other bottom dweller's, will be in contact with the worst of the tanks parameters on a consistent basis. A lack of supplemental foods will also cause problems. Having them in insufficient amounts can also be at issue.
