    So today I bought 5 smaller cory cats and everything was good a hour ago I checked the tank everything was good and a few minutes ago I check and my fire eel is upside down on the bottom dead as a door nail and he was fine I've had him for about 5 months is it possible he tryed to eat a cory and the cory stung him and killed him what do you think happened or he swallowed something he shouldn't have?

    Well, if the eel tried to eat a cory & has a big enough mouth, he may be sorry with cory pectoral spines. It could also be a disease the new fish brought in, how're they doing? Parameters? QT?

    If trying to eat a cory killed him, then the cory would still be in it's mouth. I think there was another cause.

    Some corys, when stressed, can release a toxin into the water... So this could be the case.

    What sort of Cory? And how did you quarantine and/or acclimate the fish?

    Sorry, read back more, looks like you didn't quarantine the fish yourself, and little acclimation once you brought them home.

    Did the water the corys come unending up in your tank too?
