    I have a 20gal (cycled) with 4 corydoras 2 platies and 4 guppies. One of my corys resently passed away and the day before he/she (not sure) died he/she was swimming wierdly, sometimes swimming sideways and laying down sideways.

    Note: the Cory in question was only 6 months old.

    That's really odd. Maybe there was an internal injury somehow? Did it look like it had any bruises?
