    I have a 60l tank, planted and with co2 with the plants growing well. The fish I have are 10 Neon Tetras and 4 corydoras.
    Two of my neon have Cotton Moth Fungus and I am treating with an Anti-Fungus treatment but so far with no luck.
    Could anyone advise if I will be able to cure the neon, or will I lose them.

    Hello! Columnaris is contagious so I would recommend you treat the tank - though I'm not sure about the co2 and plants.

    The correct treatment is antibiotics. Kanamycin and Nitrofurazone. Kanaplex and Furan-2 or BiFuran. Together. Furan is very yellow and kana is too expensive to treat on large tanks, so you might need to take the fish out and treat in a different qt tank.
