I started with 5 firemouth's. I now have 3. They 1 by 1 move off by themselves to the same corner as the last. The don't eat or move around too much. The dominant male would bother them but that is pretty normal.
Parameters are pH-7.6 Ammonia-0 Nitrite-0 Nitrate-5-10ppm.
Filtration- Penguin 170 and Hydor Prime 20 canister filter.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
20% water change every Saturday religiously.
They are in a 29 gal. w/ 3 spotted cory cats.
They don't show any signs of fungal or parasitic disease.

I think that only a pair of Firemouths should be kept in a 29 Gallon because they can become territorial to fish of the same species. The dominant male could be chasing them away and basically starving them.
