Can't find my 6th cory..

haven't seen 6 for a few days now. If it was dead, would it float to top? I checked behind/underneath driftwood, but it could be lodged in a plant.

I had two dead tetra that never floated...

It will not float. What cory species is that? I'd check every ornaments and even filters you have. If you see no sign, then the body may have decompose rather quickly.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Leopard Cory, too big to fit through the cap on my filter intake. But could have decomposed fast, maybe that was reason my water hasn't been clear and not an algae bloom :(

Didn't see a nitrite or ammonia spike though, unless my system is so super and my live plants, they ate it all up as it decomposed

what else do you have in there? My 4 line cat finally got big enough and gobbled up one of my cories, lol. Didn't seem like his mouth was big enough but he made it fit apparently (as evidenced by the missing cory and huge belly of the catfish)
