    What is this on my Cory? Keep in mind I've had him for 10 years. I don't know how old he was when I got him so he is at least 10 years old. Is it skin peel? How to cure it? 5fdd41cb3b4b2a50147e6cd859464cfa.jpg 472ce30c342952c5d4f9791ec83dfbf8.jpg

    Nobody's responding? I need help.

    What are the water parameters?
    Current other tankmates, and tank size?

    Is he still eating?

    Parameters are good, he's been living there for 10 years so is it just age?

    What are the exact numbers of them?
    I can't get anything figured out with "good"

    Maybe it's age, not sure.

    If you posted this in the Disease and Treatment section instead of a blog, it might get more attention.

    Looks kinda like a fungi but i would need a clearer picture to tell which type. Try treating with API Fungus Cure.

    Looking at te dorsal fin this.looks to me like a bacterial infection. The white edges are slimecoat getting loose. I don't see any fungus.

    Bronze Corys can easily get up to.20 / 25 years so it is not old age.

    The substrate isn't cory-friendly and could be the cause.

    So do I need to do anything about it?

    Keep the water clean, use an anti bacterial med and think about changing substrate I'd say.

    To me it is for Corydoras.
