I have two out of ten Corydoras that have been suffering with some sort of infection for years. I believe they had it when I got them as my first fish. It has now spread to the other fish in my 40 gallon. My water parameters are spec, and I am...
I have had 9 Sterbais Corys for almost a year. The substrate was bad for them as it was course, and many of them suffered whisker loss. Now they have been in sand for the past eight months. Two died months ago as a result of bacteria around the mouth. The remaining 7 rarely come out from the...
I was at MLS recently, talking to them about water changes. The person there acutally made me feel like I was a moron for how I was adding water back into my aqurium.

Finnex 24/7 in the front from 10:30AM-2PM
Marineland advanced in back from 4 PM -8PM. Low light at night when I am fish waching.

Stock: 7 corys, 5 octocinlus

Fluval 306 and Marineland 200
50-60% water changes weekly
Dosing thrive as directed
I had 6 harliquin rasborias that dies one by one after 3 weeks. The neons are starting to lose...
Thank you all for the nitrate info amd input. But what about my dying fish? That's kind of important here. Do high nitrates cause the symptoms I've described? I need to do something. And please, just the facts here.
