These are acid loving fish, it looks like your water is Alkaline, by reading back over the thread
OP has not yet posted water results.
It was my comment about pH on my tanks and how some of my cories have reacted in a somewhat similar way to what OP is experiencing after big water changes, which I've now stopped (reduced the volume) because by chance I found that my tap water is literally -and suddenly - off the charts alkaline
