Is he alone or with other cories?
What is the water temp? Do you have salt or meds in the water?
Do you feed him a sinking pellet or does he just get leftovers?

My cories became much more active when I obtained a school of 6, lowered the water temp to 75-76, and started feeding them their own shrimp pellets. I am not an expert though. I am new to keeping cories.

They need hiding spots and a group of friends of their own species to be secure and playful. How many do you have?

we have a few in multi tanks, at least 2 in any tank tho they do better. We have i think 4-6 in our community tank w/ angelfish a parrotfish and my eel and they play and swim around all the time. temps around 80 and they get leftovers for food and then every other or every few days i toss in some sinking wafers for them to feed on. Happy but sadly I still can't get them to breed like my gf's mom does.
