I didnt notice till I put it in,but I didnt think anything of it.
Well im going down there,with my dad. Hes good at complaining haha. Hope they will do something cause well if not thats just bull. I tested my water myself,its perfect. 0 across the board. So its not that at all. Its them selling me a sick/dying fish. 5 bucks a pop for a panda too!!
If your water parameters are off and are not in the range a fish is accustomed to it can certainly die rather quickly.
How do you acclimate your fish? Cory cats are sensitive when adding to a new tank (though they are hardy once they are acclimated correctly).
