None of the other stock in that tank are showing any symptoms or acting odd.
BTW - Almost forgot -
Aquaclear 30 filter
Albino cories - 3 (was 4 until a bit ago) :(
Otos - 5
And a breeder net full of fry - about 4-5 days old. They are moving to a 10 gallon nursery setup once they are ready.
Did I leave anything important out?
Could it be possible that stress from birthing may have resulted in complications? Could substrate be too rough? I'm no expert and this is only speculation but were it me,, I might slowly lower the temp in the tank over a couple days to slow down possible bacterial pathogens which develop faster at tropical temps as opposed to cooler temps and cory's that I have kept often did much better at 74 degrees rather than warmer water.
Might also consider sand for substrate which is much smoother than rocks,gravel.
Might also try offering shrimp pellets,spirulina pellets,and perhaps hold off on blood worms for a while and try flake foods or small pellet foods high in protein. New life spectrum and Ocean nutrition make some very good foods. Might also consider medicated foods if other fishes begin to show symptoms.
Hope some of this helps.
P.S. might also consider placing the heater halfway up the glass in the tank if it is near the bottom where fish can wedge themselves between the heater and the glass while resting or trying to avoid the advances of perhaps numerous males. Just some thoughts.
