My cory catfish is really sick

maricacirk

Okay, so, one of my corys got sick, and i thought it was ick (it still could be this is my first time seeing it). The cory had a white spot that was pretty small when I moved it to a quarantene tank. I got him some medication thats "against fungal infections, skin and gill flukes". I would like to add that it was the only fish showing any type of symptoms. It was very lethargic when i first noticed the spot. Anyways, i moved it to a different tank and started medications straight away, and he seemed to be doing good the first few days, he got more active, he also never had an issue with feeding. It also looked like some sort of white crust was forming over him, i will add those photos as well as from today. The crust was off this morning, and cory turned very pale, for a second i thought it was dead. Its not, but he is swimming around frantically and it looks like he has an open wound. Someone please help?


Few more info: he was in a tank with another cory, a common pleco and a three spot gourami, its a 115l tank, and all the other fish are healthy. he is now in alone in a 40l tank.

Looks like a scrape cause of sticking its head in the substrate and now a bacterial infection. What is it fed ?

TetraMin granules, all my fish seem to enjoy it. He also still eats normally but other than that he seems very sick. Any advice for me? i was supposed to put meds in 3 days in a row and i did that, so im not sure if its okay to use it again. Do i just wait, or is there anything alse i can do for it? Actually if its bacterial i guess ive been using wrong meds anyways...what do i do?

The meds are useless in this case cause it isn't any of the mentioned diseases.

I'd seperate it, do daily waterchanges, variate in food (and maybe try an anti bacterial med) To be honest I think it a goner looking as transparant as it does (sorry). Hoping I am wrong.
