All seems to be well now; the corys haven't shown signs of disease since actually an hour or two before the second treatment. (I went ahead and did it again anyway since its an internal disease)....

Yep, and none so far, all the BB seems to be fine. :)
04-29-2014, 12:01 AM
Everything's going fine so far;
1 cory has EXTREMELY faint redness on the gills, and another has very faint and small red spot on his side. I dosed the Furan 2 for the fourth time today, so the...

Okay, so I added all the filter stuff back into the filter itself.
I also took this picture last night: 33588 The fish died this morning. :( Luckily, all the other corys seem to be improving; the...

Since I do have school I have to get back to, I went ahead and just did it. I currently have the sponge and biomax in a bucket full of (de chlorinated) water. Praying that this'll work.

Well, I just got the stuff and on the back it says its NOT safe to leave the filter on cause it'll kill the BB? So should I take the filter off while doing treatment; my worry there is that ammonia...

I should be treating with Furan 2 in a couple of hours. I'm gonna assume it won't hurt the tetras and there are no special precautions I need to take?
04-25-2014, 02:39 AM
Ah, okay, I get it now. Thanks!
I suppose it's a good thing no store had Maracyn in stock. :P
04-24-2014, 11:41 PM
Wait, I'm confused, so should I be treating for Septicemia or Columnaris, in which case I would treat the entire tank?! And so should I buy Furan two instead of Maracyn 2 no matter what? And with...
04-24-2014, 10:08 PM
Well, I've either got to go now to get the stuff or 24 hours from now, so I guess I'm gonna try it. I've still got 2-3 hours before I'd have to put the fish in if anyone still has suggestions as to...
04-24-2014, 09:51 PM
Well, unless anybody can provide some advice, I have an idea that hopefully will work. (It could also be absolutely terrible for all I know :P)
I'm thinking that I should use Maracyn 2, but I don't...

I think you're right; a few minutes ago another cory (the one with the red dot I posted a picture of earlier) began swimming erratically before dying. The only fish I can now see with any red spots...
04-24-2014, 06:38 PM
I haven't really had any other issues, although I don't really see the corys eating, but I know they are because an hour or so after feeding, all of it will be gone. And my tap water has 0-.25ppm...
04-24-2014, 05:35 PM
I think so... Although actually, I might not have the morning of the 23rd (yesterday).. I'll check the log I keep of when I test and the results when I get home
04-24-2014, 04:22 PM
I am using conditioner, but not Prime, I use API
04-24-2014, 03:57 PM
Oh, while I didn't mention it, I assure you I did do a large water change to get the nitrates down the night before the fish came, though I'll make sure to do another as soon as I can

I woke up to one of the corys dead:
I notice it had some red spots on its belly. I got more pictures of this:
I was looking at the other corys and a few of them show red spots on...
04-23-2014, 02:29 AM
Okay, good to know! And I should turn the lights on tomorrow, right? I think I've heard that they should be on 8-10 hours a day, so does turning them on at 7am and off at 4pm sound like a good plan?...
04-22-2014, 11:08 PM
Okay, pictures coming tomorrow! :)
Anyway, the corys average just over half an inch, and the tetras just under half an inch. The corys are swimming around exploring already which seems like a good...
04-22-2014, 04:34 PM
Well, I ran home during my lunch break... And everything's going well! :) well, it ENDED well at least. According to my Mom, 1 of the corys arrived dead, but the store had accidentally sent me 9...
04-16-2014, 11:01 AM
Well... There was an issue with getting the payment to them (the store) so It seems I'll be waiting till this coming Tuesday.. Now I'll have time to get that Prefilter sponge and some more plants at...
04-13-2014, 12:18 AM
I ordered 8 corydoras habrosus and 10 ember tetras.
Oh, and while I sure hope I'll be at home when the fish arrive, I can't be certain as the latest they'll arrive is 10am, and I'm normally off to...
04-12-2014, 08:59 PM
Well, I went ahead and just got what they had at the store since my Mom didn't want to order anything else (other than the fish). :P speaking of which, they'll be arriving on Tuesday! :D and...
04-05-2014, 03:53 PM
Well both fish are now out of quarantine, so I'll be ordering them tomorrow!
But I've waited to get the food until I know (and I do now) what fish I'll be getting of sure:
At PetSmart they have...

Okay, thank you both! I'll look into to this other place; I think I may have heard of it before.
