I was away and my sister told me that one cory has been missing for two days. I thought that it died and that it may had been eaten by other fish but I found it stuck under some rocks. I noticed that the corydora was hanging on the top of the tank lately and I thought that it was suspicious. I don't know if the fish got sick because it got stuck or it got stuck because it was sick. Now that I released it, it looks stressed, not doing much and it looks a bit bloated, like it has a hump, kyphosis or something.

Aww, i am sorry to hear this! I love cories. I have a peppered cory and it looks alot like yours. I am sure he/she is stressed from being stuck. Poor thing! Just keep an eye on it and keep its water clean. You can also try soaking its food in liquid garlic to help boost its immune system. Seachems garlic is what i use. You can also get some vita-chem and soak its food in that along with the garlic. Its vitamins for fish. A few drops of vita-chem to a small amount of garic. Enough garlic to at least cover the food. Soak for about 30 minutes. Kensfish has catfish sticks that my cory loves! You may want to try that or something you knows he/she will eat. I really hope it starts to feel better but give it time. I mean really if we were stuck under a rock we wouldn't come out dancing around! lol Hopefully time and some TLC will do the job!!!! Good Luck!!!

I tried to feed it some zucchini, bloodworms, pea. Nothing. I guess it is still very stress. I'm afraid it has a bacteria infection

Aww, poor thing! I feel so bad for it! Maybe it is just stressed and just needs some rest. Just keep a close eye out for diffent symptoms. I sure hope it is feeling better soon.

Aww, well that is a good sign that its eating though!! Maybe its just swollen from being stuck under the rock, it could have been trying to wiggle out and that may have caused the swelling. Try not to worry too much and keep an eye on it. Glad to hear its eating at least!!!!
