Corydoras permanently at the top of the tank
#1
Hey, I recently purchased 6 peppered Corydoras to join my Aquarium, 5 of them are doing perfectly fine behaving exactly how I’d expect them to, however one of them is always at the top of the tank, I’m used to seeing my Venezuelan corys dart to the top then back down but never stay at the top, I can hear the water almost clicking whilst this Cory is at the top. I have done a 50% water change and checked my water parameters and they are all fine, when it’s feeding time this Cory will join in eating then make its way back to the top of the tank. Sometimes it will behave normally, for hours and hours then suddenly will spend the next 20 minutes at the top of the tank, anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? And how I can resolve it?

I found out especially Peppers scavage the whole tank for something to eat.

Hey, I will bear this in mind, but I don’t have any plants or algae at the water line, I will try to get a video next time I see it happening

They don't eat plants or algae. I suspect biofilm / tiny left overs.

Ah okay that might explain it then, I will keep an eye out just in case. Thank you very much for the help
