I don't think the maroxy did any harm -- I was more or less like -- well why didn't you just do that before I put the med in? He looked like he was giving up. :( The water parameters appeared to be fine. The pH was just a little more on the basic side (I have driftwood in my other tanks).

I understand about the meds treating different things, and will still look for the mertanidazil just in case the other cory takes a turn for the worse. I am just amazed at how fast this progressed!

I'd still like to figure out the cause, because I have been looking for bronze cories (why are they so hard to find??? sometimes cories in general seem to be in short supply) to add to this pair.

He's gone.

:(

He went from -- pieces of skin/scales missing, to white patches of fuzz on head and tail, to big fuzzies on head, then he loss his color; he was inactive the whole time

he hadn't been eating either; I think he may have been going crazy just prior to me finding him sick/injured -- one of the cories (I'm guessing this guy) had been hanging out at the top of the tank acting all excited-like, wasn't sure if he was having breathing probs or just looking for food...

still concerned that he appeared to have been shoved in the corner behind a sponge filter, on his side
