    Default 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!
