Hello, I noticed my corydoras have these little white/clear hairs on mainly their barbells and fins. Does anyone know what they might be?
I looked around as best i could, but i could not find anything similar. It has been about a week or two, the condition seems to be only worsening on the juvenile cory (still eating, but hides more). The adult cory is going about as usual. They are both peppered corys. (I know i should have more than 2, i will be upgrading my tank size very soon).
I have some amanos, guppies, tetras, and ottos in the tank as well (20g high). As per usual they seem very active and appear to be uneffected (at least currently).
I suspect the juvenile cory was the source, as i thought he looked thin when i got him. But chocked it up to, lack of being fed at the petstore. Unfortunately, i do not have a quarantine tank so it was a bad decision i know.
These are my tank parameters:
Size: 20g high (Heavily planted)
- Marina s20 slim HOB filter (customized for 3 stage filtration: course sponge/purigen/tidal matrix/filter floss)
- Topfin 10g corner filter (Medium course sponge only)
-I also have some pothos plants in the HOB filter
Any help would be greatly appreciated, never seen anything like this before.
