Flame Dwarf Gourami in trouble
Hey guys,
My Flame Dwarf Gourami started showing signs of small white spots 2 days ago. I've been treating him for two days using QuiICK Cure as directed. He shares a 10 gallon tank with a few Neon Tetras and Pygmy Cories. The Ammonia is at about .25ppm, Nitrite 0ppm, Nitrate 10ppm, and pH is at around 7pH. I do 25% (maybe a little more than that) water changes and clean gravel once a week. The water has been a little green the last two weeks (i just started reducing light from about 11 or 12 hours a day to 8), but I read that shouldn't hurt them. The last few hours he's been much worse. The last few days hes been breating a little heavy and constantly at the top of the tank but now he seems to be having trouble just trying to swim up to the top and seems to be breathing even heavier. Clearly treating for ICK doesn't seem to be helping. At this point any ideas would be great, thanks.
