I need advice. Last week I saw a fine coat of white in large spots on a couple of my cories. I treated with API general cure, thinking it's velvet.
One of the cories looked pale and passed the day after treatment.
After the second dose, I still have the large whitish areas and another cory has a large pale looking spot.
Any ideas? I hate to re-try a cure that didn't work, but don't know what else to try. Someone else has post here a black moor they lost using the same treatment. I'm hoping someone can recommend something more effective - or challenge the diagnosis.
I know you'll ask about conditions. I'll run tests tonight, at work right now. The plants in the tank are doing very poorly, I have to wonder if that's telling me something? The tank is a 46g with:
3 Adorable butterfly loaches
1 Black Phantom (2 others had mystery deaths a couple months back, no new fish in since then)
3 Sidh... loaches
6 Neon dwarf rainbowfish - these guys hated the treatment, were spooky and wouldn't eat.
At last test, I had no ammonia, nitrite or nitrate. I do need to retest to confirm, especially since I treated. Plants were amazing a couple of weeks ago, but are suddenly fading fast.
I'd appreciate it someone with more expereince could help me get through this!
