Albino Cory Laying on Side
 
Guys,my albino cory catfish has been doing something strange. He lays on his side and doesn't move. If you tap him with a net, he starts moving again!I've seen him do it three times now. Does anyone know what's up with it? All of my other fish act fine.

I've never heard of that. My albino cory's are pretty active most of the time. And then a some parts of the day they just rest there at the bottom front of the tank like they're chillin on a beach. I have never seen one on it's side before though. Keep a good eye on him. Check his swimming patterns. Does he swim sideways too? Does it look difficult for him to swim?

Well, he seems pretty active today. I don't know if he was sleeping or if he is really sick. There are no signs of disease, and he can swim just fine.
