I've noticed yesterday that one of my 4 Corydoras is looking sick...
He is laying down in the bottom of the aquarium and looking pale (I didn't know it was possible...). He is breathing very slowly and he looks like a bit "thin".
All the other 3 Corydoras are looking well and happy.

I've check my water and it has good quality (although the aquarium is quite new): 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 10 nitrate, 7.4pH and 25ºC.
He is living in a community tank (about 40 Gallons) with 3 Corydoras, 1 Angel Fish, a Betta and 8 Black Neon Tetras. All live plants.

Please help, as he really looks sick. Any ideas?

Well your readings look A-ok... Is he eating, or is he uninterested in food? If you can see his poop, if its white and stringy then it could be some sort of Internal Parasite. what kind of corydoras are they?

Unfortunatly my Cory died yesterday.
He had hole on his stomach but no sign of being bitten by other fish.
One of my other cories has also very quiet and looking pale. Today he is looking better!
Could it be a parasite?
