Cories don't tolerate salt well. Yes the peas are for eating
is there plenty of cover in the tank (plants, caves etc?)
I don't know about anyone else, but that behaviour, though infrequent, is typical for my cories. They'll have days where they zoom about just enjoying being a fish, days where they are wholly focused on scavenging and will bump into tank mates who are in their path, then there are days where they just want to rest. It used to freak me out (like my yoyo loaches did when they played dead) but I've come to accept it as a normal behaviour. If I'm REALLY concerned, I'll drop some frozen blood worm in. They can't resist it!
Just watch that its fins are not clamped, its barbels are intact etc
