Peppered Cory is injured
I noticed today that one of my Peppered Cory's looks as though one side of his whiskers was torn off somehow.
That whole whisker is red and it looks smaller than the other side.
Other than that, he is behaving normally. Just wondering if he needs any treatment or should heal on his own.
what is ur substrate cause if its gravel it could hurt ur cory
Substrate is natural, smooth pebbles.
oh ok well then i am not sure what happened are there other aggersive fish in the tank..
either way it will grow back
X ray tetras and a betta, but the betta hasn't touch any of the other fish and keeps to himself.
Also, the betta was kept in a community tank at the LFS, so he is used to having other fish around.
The only thing I can think of is another cory got him while they were going nuts over a shrimp pellet..
thats quite possible. i mean i doubt ur cory got hurt in an act of direct aggression. sometimes things happen in tanks either way i hope ur cory makes a good recovery
Poor guy! Keep a close eye on it and keep his water clean. If it's red it may get infected.
poor little guy.
keep the tank really clean,especially the gravel.
(i'm not saying you don't already :) )
it's just that because they live on the substrate,keeping
it swept clean,saves any more risk to secondardy infection,
you could always add some melafix to the tank.
