cory cat with puffed up eye??
just came home from work and went to feed my buddies and noticed a puffed up eye on one of my cory cats
i am very pissed because a little less than a week ago i went to petco and baught 4 cory cats 2 spotted 1 green and 1 albino within 2 days 2 died and now this poor guy has a puffed up eye
i really hate stores like this cuz i feel like they are alwayssssss selling sick fish and it b.s. it could b because i just switched to a bigger tank (from 20 to 45 g)
but all my other fish are fine
but what would cause his eye to puff up like that and how could i cure it
i am going to try and post a picture20 gallon- platies, dalmation mollies, cory cats, red belly x ray tetras,gourami, african dwarf frog

Not sure about Petco, but PetSmart has a 14 day return policy. You might want to check. Buying fish from PetSmart I feel like I'm saving them. I have had to return dead fish even with ideal water conditions, some are probably so stressed out there's no turning back if you know what I mean.25 Gal - Tropical

yea i baught 7 fish from petco and only have 4 left they died in 5vdays and i promised my self i will never go to petco or petsmart cuz like u said i feel like i am saving them from death taking them from these stores cuz i feel like they just put the fish in tanks and dont care...i found a small pet store a little bit from where i live and the guy who owns it talked to me for like an hour about everything aquarium related and i will definately be going to him for fish cuz he actually cares about them and if he sees a disease arising he treats it until he gets it under control. doesnt have a huge fish selection but he takes orders for people and gets them delivered every monday... just a good guy that actually cares about the fish20 gallon- platies, dalmation mollies, cory cats, red belly x ray tetras,gourami, african dwarf frog
