Strange albino Cory behavior

Hi everyone

We are on our last stage of ick infestation with my female endlers/albino cory and guppies. Lately i have noticed that as soon as i go close to the tanl the corys go crazy and dart all over the tank. Is this normal?.. They have never done this before. We did a water change today since the ick infection.. Ph and Nitrates are all normal ..

Am i just worried for nothing or this strange behavior telling me something...?

I think Corys are skittish until they have time to adjust to their surroundings. If you are disrupting them frequently with the extra water changes, my guess is they could be on edge, and just need time to settle. Thats just an observation though, and could be completely off.
