Hey everyone! I've been to my lfs and called another one noone seems to know what Im talking about. Maybe one of you will. Basically I went to aforementioned fish store and bought some pygmy Salt and Pepper cories. They said they were quarantined at the store and they are the "best" store around locally. They haven't calmed down since I brought them home. That was Monday. Lfs said to try General Cure. Yesterday, Thursday, I noticed some of my fish having respiratory problems. I've checked all the parameters 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 5-10 nitrate. I thought it may be the General Cure. So I did a water change. When I dump my buckets I usually check the bottom to make sure I'm not tossing out any snails. That's when I noticed what I think is causing the trouble-very small pepper looking "bugs". Definitely not copepods, I have those in my Amano shrimp tank and are familiar with them and how they look. Can anyone tell me what this may be and how to get rid of it? Also, this is the LAST time I go without a quarantine tank. As soon as I can I plan to start one so my community doesn't have this problem again. I appreciate any input or advice.
