    Small Clown loaches (and some cories) dropping like flies

    Have a few clown loaches and cories in a 12 long. Running an aquaclear with heater, some driftwood and plants.

    Last few weeks, i've been losing a loach and cory a day. Any ideas why?

    Do they need to eat more? too cold? too much food? too small a space?

    Could you provide more insight into the water temp?
    Also, what type of driftwood and where is it from?
    Do you have any info on the water parameters?

    What type of filtration are you running? Are you changing water regularly and how often? Are you making sure your water is free of any contaminants? How big is your stock? Maybe you have too many in a 12 gallon which for me doesn't seem to big but wouldn't know with given information. More info is needed.
