I cannot catch a break right now...
So learning a hard lesson right now to not neglect the substrate and all kinds of fun stuff that could follow.
So after this neglect or this is incredible timing.
I have 2 fish that are showing some sort of disease.
I'll try and get pics tonight, but they don't stay still enough for the pic.
Fish 1: Spotted Cory
Last night, I saw the cory swimming and he had a white mark on him. Looked a bit puffy and right outside his right gill.
Fish 2: EBR
clear poop with white dots, and stringy.
So plan of action I took last night.
did slightly under the recommended dosing of Maracyn 2.
added some PraziPro (never de-wormed the fish anyhow, so might as well to be safe)
Was I correct in these meds?
Or shall I do a big water change and use other meds?
The only other additional meds I have are Melafix and PimaFix

Okay, got a pic.
Looks like he cut himself. I'll drop some prozac into the tank...hardy har har
but for real. here is the best pic I could snap of the cory.
did the second day dose of maracyn 2.
since it looks to be a cut...could i switch to melafix or pima fix? just because I have more of that than my maracyn 2?

nuttin? no idea?
just treated 4 days of maracyn 2, and tonight did a 70% pwc.
the red mark inside the white area is gone, but the white area is still there. he's active, swimming and eating appropriately.

Sounds like what you're doing is working - when a fish injures itself, I've read that nothing works better than clean water - if the meds help then great!46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
5 gal QT
Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in
