They tend to die easily for some reason.
I had bought 5 skunk corys. They all systematically died. Two of them died from a fungal infection (the meds didn't help) and three just rolled to their...

Some catfish are surprisingly tough.
About a month ago, I bought peppered corys. I didn't realize my sink was clogged and that the plug on it didn't go down all the way on one side. One of my...
I have 3 of them in my 20g planted tank. They are usually hiding in the leaves and on the driftwood but will stick against the glass.
Unlike cory cats, dead otos are floaters. You'll usually...
This is why I'm going to go large for my second tank.
I really think I'll be addicted if I get another regular sized tank. I'm going to save for something around 100 gallons and make it a planted...
I was wondering about aeration in a tank. I saw a formula somewhere (forgot the site) that showed oxygen intake per square inch of surface water and how it relates to number of fish...
I'm jealous of the 120 gallon tank and also curious as to what you plan on doing with it. :stongue:
Yeah, I ended up buying the peppered corys from another store. That one store had bigger skunk corys for $9 a pop, but they looked as lethargic as the ones I originally bought and I was extremely...
LOL, new development.
I got my handyman to come over (since the pipes were clogging anyways) and he unscrewed the pipe and there was the fish, still flopping around.
I threw him (not literally)...
::: begin rant :::
I'm usually a responsible person, but lately fish seem to be dying left and right on me.
I had a danio who died b/c he was weak when I bought him. He got stuck against the...
Thanks for your responses and support everyone.
I'm down to 2 skunk corys, but am keeping my fingers crossed. :fingerscrossed:
I'm probably going to get 3 or 4 new corys, but will probably go...
Yeah, they were really lethargic and already seemed a bit pale when I got them (2 or 3 weeks ago), which makes me wonder about the store's suppliers and their commitment to fish upkeep.
This is unbelievable...
I just got home from work and found yet another one lying dead.
All water parameters check out.
I am wondering whether they somehow all caught an infection when the...
If your battery pack ever fails for some reason or another, you could do what I did when my power went out the second time (for over 24 hours) this winter.
1. Wrap the aquarium in blankets to...
Yeah, it was from that store.
Funny, b/c the danios and oto cats (only had a couple days) from that store have survived so far. One danio died but he looked emaciated from the start. I hope they...
Does it happen often to you guys?
I bought 5 skunk corys last month and within that time period have lost 2, one to unknown causes and the other one died today in a quarantine tank (fungal...
NVM, he didn't make it.
It does say to dose daily for 7 days and make a 25% WC, but would it be safe to refrain from doing a water change in a 1 gallon tank for 7 days?
Also, pics of the little guy and the med tank.
So I added about 4 drops (following the 5ml / 10 gallon, I put 0.5 ml in the 1 gallon tank) of Pimafix into the tank.
It says to add one dose per day, but I assume that it's for bigger tanks with...
Yeah, I ended up getting Pimafix.
I'm going to keep the little guy in my 1 gallon med tank for 3-4 days with Pimafix. I have an aerator but no filter, so I guess I'll have to do 25% WC everyday.
I did research. Looks like Pimafix is better for fungal infections.
Thanks again for your help, everyone.
I'm going to try out the Melafix in my quarantine tank with 40% daily WC for a couple days.
Thanks for the replies.
I'll keep the little guy in the main tank, do 25% WC tonight and look into the best meds at my LFS tomorrow then.
Kinda wish I had seen the growth earlier today since I made a trip...
I have a skunk cory with a small fungal infection.
I'm going to quarantine him in a one gallon tank (the only backup tank I have) with a salt solution (and 60% main tank water + 40% fresh water,...
Those are some awesome looking corys.
I really like the patterns on them.
Is the cory in the second pic really purple or is it the lighting?
