few questions..
i have a 55 gal and i found 2 bites on my blue gnormi is there any treatment i can giv it. i dont know if its from my angel fish or red tailed black shark. i also have a rainbow shark in my 10 gal. which is less agrresive...

what ever is les agressive is going in my 55 gal tank

i have 3 panda corys that sometimes just stay at the corner on the bottom and dont move is this normal?

I always thought that the red tailed black shark was considered semi-aggressive, so if I had to guess I would say that he did it. The cory's behavior may also be because of the shark. I would do some further research on the sharks.

With the gourami beng a top dwelling fish and the shark being a bottom dweller it'd be odd to see them cross paths that much especially on a deeper tank like a 55. Angelfish are more predatory and likely to encounter the gourami more. What size is the gourami and angel?

I have three corys of my own and no shark and they still spend most of their time in a dark corner doing nothing. I believe that corys are typically nocturnal and so you're not likely to see them going full blast all day long. My smallest cory will venture out from time to time but my two larger ones spend all day in the shade and don't get active till night.

how many corys are there,they well fair better in
a large group 6 + you will enjoy them more,and they will feel
more secure and probably will venture out more.
the old saying "there is safty in numbers" springs to mind.
