    My one panda Cory (I have 3) seems to have a red tinge to his belly. Is this an infection of some sort? I have Melafix on hand and I was thinking of doing a water change soon because maybe the water is a bit bad ( Been kinda busy lately). I'll try to get pics soon as well.

    Could be red blotch. The combination of several waterchanges and Melafix seem to work for that. Other possible is nitrites but then they would be more red in the gill area.

    Looking at pictures online it looks like it would be more like red blotches so I'll probably do a water change and see how he's holding up after that and then if that doesn't work I'll try Melafix

  4. DoubleDutchFishlore LegendMember

    No. I'd advise to do waterchanges and add Melafix at the same time.
  5. Daniel NebushkowValued MemberMember

    Like do a water change and then add Melafix or add Melafix and do a water change?
  6. JLeeMWell Known MemberMember

    Melafix after. Or you're just removing it.
  7. Daniel NebushkowValued MemberMember

    Kinda thought that was the case lol
  8. DoubleDutchFishlore LegendMember

    I meand to say. Not wait but use it direct after the waterchange !
  9. Daniel NebushkowValued MemberMember

    What the heck!?!! I just found one of the cories dead with the dorsal fin almost completely gone and the tail fin! What the heck happened?
  19. JLeeMWell Known MemberMember

    Sounds like somebody had dinner when they found his carcass.

    Sorry to hear.
    I had 5 panda cories.
    3 passed for no apparent reason.
    I only found the body of one of them, I think the shrimp and/or assassin snails got the other two as all I found were partial skeletons.
