Recently the corys have started coming to the surface to get air - it seems to be all of the them but none of the other fish. They seem healthy otherwise. I have a Tetra filter that attaches to the side and the water temp is always within the "green zone" of the thermometer. Should I be concerned. Should I be trying to increase the aeration of the tank and if so how?
just do constant water changes until you get that resolved, 50% water changes I would say...how do you measure your water parameter? do you have air stones? if not get those they help with oxygen. Tell us more about your equipment and your tank it would help us see what up with those unusual readings. like I said keep asking question anything that you might have in mind ask it could mean a drastic change in the health and well-being of your little fishies!!!
