This tank is a new one. Before this we had a smaller for about 2 years. Water parameters were good, except NO2 and NO3 the last time we checked it (I don't remember exactly, how much it was, but surely less then in a new tank). We had plants in old tank (not the same as in a new one). Food - the same. Fish - the same. Filter: Aqua EL Filter Bio FS 80, media: Mechanical, biological, chemical. I cleaned tank and changed some water once in three weeks.
O noticed one pimple on Cory a day before we moved fish to the new tank, but I didn't thought that something is wrong with him. Only when I saw Cory in the new tank were lightening is different I realize that Cory is sick. And he is getting worse (his physical appearance). But he eats well, plays with other Cory.
