One of my Cories died, another not doing well.

Ellebrius

One was dead when I woke up this morning and another doesn’t look too great, see picture.
Those are baby cories I’ve had 5 for only two weeks and 2 for one week, they are about half an inch.

i removed the dead one and immediately tested my water again, everything is fine there except the PH which I’m worried about see picture of high PH test. My other results are 0,0, and 5ppm. Temp is 78 and it’s a 40 gallon tank, I added 3 Bolivian Rams 4 days ago that are doing just fine. All my fish came straight from the supplier, my lfs orders for me and I pick up as they arrive So they never go in any store tank.

i have been feeding them shrimp pellets, they don’t touch the flakes or bloodworms. The one on the photo is the one i’m worried about, he lies upside down against the glass. Others are swimming around and eating for now. Oh I noticed 3 or 4 days ago one was missing his back fin. Don’t know if he came like that he was so small it was hard to see at first. The Rams are not harassing them at all so it’s not them. Maybe the one missing the dorsal fin is the one that died I couldn’t tell.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

The one inthe pic looks very thin.
Could they have been on a wrong diet before you got them ?
 

Ellebrius

They came straight from the supplier Imporium.com so I have no idea What their diet was. Here is a picture of the same one I thought maybe he looks bloated?
