Try to keep your NitrAtes in the 10 to 20 range and yes do water changes to bring the numbers down. You are doing the right thing with the water changes.
Hopefully someone else in here might have seen this behavior and can chime in.

I wish I had a better update for today. I've been doing partial water changes and treating with prime, but the behavior seems to have increased this morning. It makes my spotted cory sad because he wants to play but gets ignored. The other fish are all still acting perfectly normal.

Have you googled Cory's for a forum for more specific help? I found this one, hope it's ok to post here, but we are all about helping each other, right?! Home - Corydoras
Please let us know if you find out anything.

He hasn't jumped out of the water yet this afternoon, so I'm hoping his system is calming down finally. It may just have taken a while after the nitrates level was lowered. He still runs along the top and hovers occasionally, but I haven't heard any splashes in a while. :)

Good to hear that your water parameters are ok. My cories tend to get less active when the nitrates get high. But again, I haven't had any experience with any other cories than the ones I've have for less than a year

Yes, thank-you They're acting great now, playing all the time when the lights are on! Paul (the one I was worried about) has been coming up to my fingers to be pet when I have to reach in there. His normal swimming route is still altered, but he's not trying to jump out anymore which seems like success to me. I got another young albino since my other died, and they seem pretty happy together now.
