Unfortunately the Cory didn't make it. It was the only casualty that occured. I did however remove the Mopani driftwood and scrub it thoroughly. I even boiled it for about two hours thinking i might return it to the tank. I ultimately thought better of the idea and got an artificial piece that will serve nicely for a cave. The driftwood is going to be repurposed by my wife with something called air plants...
To put it shortly, Less one Pepper Cory, Plus one Decoration...
I did 50% water changes for two days and nervously watched the tank like a hawk. Pretty sure I lost a few years off my life...
There are a few new pictures in my Aquariums Log if you'd like to take a look
