2 dwarf plecostomus: 1 Angelfish, 5 Corydoras,
good water test.
Other diseases and parasites are possible. Is the fish showing any other symptoms? Lethargic is a general sign of a fish not doing well, not a specific diagnosis.
Happy fish keeping!
From the best I can gather - somehow these guys are the most diseased ridden fish sold. Forgive me if you're a solid fish dealer. My best guess, is the stress from transport causes these guys to give their infections the upper hand. I've seen the symptoms you're talking about - almost yoyoing from he top the bottom. Sadly this isn't why they're called yoyos
I'll go ahead a wear my heart on my sleeve, I bet I've had no less than a dozen yoyos die once bringing them home -which resulted in me trying all sorts of stuff. In the end, the best I found was treat aggressively with SeaChem Paragaurd at the max dose for weeks on end. If the fish were healthy enough when I brought them home they survived. Most of the time they came home past the point of no return to my untrained eye. I only have 2 yoyos now - ones a beast for its age and the other (who looks like a yoyo hybrid or lacks the true "yoyo" pattern) are the only two I have left. The weird colored one hasn't grown much. In the end, I think there was an underlying ich infection.
Had my luck had been different I would have a dominant yoyo tank, but I don't. Ended up with kubotia and a handfull of other cool loach species that were simply healthier when I brought them home/quarantined them.
