Thread: Cories losing whiskers?

Mine lost theirs (my tanks has zero nitrites and frankly, that will not do it) because a section of my fine sand substrate washed away exposing gravel underneath it (exactly where the Corries would 'hang out' in the back of the tank behind a very large piece of wood.) That alone did it (less than a week before I realized the issue and fixed it.)Knowledge is fun(damental)
A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
