    Just lost one that looked like this the other day.
    Started with 6 emerald cories and 6 otos are they all doomed? Should I euthanize?

    Are all the inhabitants affected like this? Did they all come from the same store? How long have you had them?

    Same store going on 2 weeks. Nvr noticed it until the other day this is a qt tank so I dont have another. These are hopefully okay were going to be possible tankmates for my 150. The cories and remaining otos dont seem to have it.

    I really don't know what it is. I've heard that crooked spines can be caused by TB but I would take that with a grain of salt coming from me. I'd wait for the more experienced members to chime in.

    Maybe @DoubleDutch has seen this before, too.

    If tb is what I think he means. Terberculosis.... You have it too


    Highly doubt it

    Think it's more likely to be a genetic issue than tb (that shows more symptoms).
    Can you place more pics of your fish?
    I can't even see what fish is in the pic.
    Is it a Cory?

    It means tuberculosis allright.
    If it would be that one should be carefull, but it doesn't mean that "you have it too".

    Try to not scare people unnecessary !

    These are the rest. They are all healthy looking other than the ottos are pale.
    It may have something to do with it being a half bare bottom tank the other half is natural browns and tans rock.
