Both quarantined fish showed no further signs of illness, and have been added to stocked/cycled tanks. In my last post, I stated that I did not believe this to be a case of myco. Main reason being that I have no veterinary skill and did not have the meds the experts advise to use for myco, and still both fish are alive and well. The cory's dorsal fin was obviously some type of bacterial infection, but healed quickly after administering common antibiotics. The nose was probably just something it did to itself after going into QT (rubbed raw) and got a fungal infection. I believe the harlequin may have just had a swim bladder infection (or possibly early dropsy), but also made a quick recovery. No other fish in the house have come down ill.
The cory was added to our 40 gal and has become fast friends with the unknown cory that came with the tank. If you're reading this, Byron, I was wondering if you'd be willing to take a shot at ID'ing the cory pictured in my aquarium pics?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
