  1. Unhappy Finless Corys (w/ pictures)

    0 Not allowed!
    After getting a few more corys the other day, I realized quickly that there was one major difference between those ones and the ones already in my tank: those ones had (relatively) long, flowing fins. This morning I isolated the two smallest and most extensively damaged of my 7-strong albino school in a breeder box, but I don't know what I need to do now to help them regrow their fins.

    You can't see it well here, but even their front fins have been reduced to little stubs. The larger corys are damaged, but their injuries aren't nearly as bad. I'm pretty sure that it's my tiger barbs that did this, but I just boosted their numbers, so I hope that will prevent any further aggression against my peaceful albinos... Any advice?

    Maybe try some Mela- and/or Pimafix to help their fin re-growth until they heal?

    Yeah it is probably fin rot. I would recommed using both melafix and pimafix together, also make sure to keep the water clean. Their fins should grow back in time.

    And, probably best if you have a quarantine or hospital tank, else you have to dose the whole tank.

    Cory's are one of the few fish I have never heard being nipped at by Tigers... like the above I am suspecting fin rot as well.

    Try getting rid of the tigers.. From what I can see from people on these forums they are nothing but trouble.
