Nope, I don't know 😞. I took a look at my cory this morning before I left for work and I found only two spots left on him one on his fin and one on his body. Wierd. Maybe it's just some dirt that sticked to his body while searching for food?

UPDATE: Yesterday I obbserved something again. These dark brown spots on my cory disappeared completely in one day while the lights were out. Yesterday when I came home from work I turned the lights on for around 2 hours while I fed the fish and in order to my plants get some light, I don't know how much will they survive without the lights 😞. After an hour and a half I checked on the fish and as a surprise my cory had brown spots on his body and pelvic fins. I turned the light off and checked on him this morning and the spots were almost gone only a few were there. What is this :eek Can somebody help me please? Beside this all of my fish behave normally now, they are colorful again, but their fins where it got damaged by the fin rot looks still the same. At least it does not got worse.

Thank you in advance.

Well that does sound like velvet then. Plants can go awhile without light, but if you're worried you can always move them out of the tank, but make sure to treat them too. Remove any filter carbon and follow as directed https://www.thesprucepets.com/aquari...velvet-1378486

Thank you very much for your help.
I will remove the plants then and treat them separately. Also, I will make a 50% water change tomorrow, put back the carbon, let the filter run for 24 h this way, in order to remove any toxic substance left from the treatment with the Sera Omnipur. After 24 h I will remove the carbon and maybe I will do a smaller water change again, then I will add another round of Omnipur, since it says it is effective against velvet too, and I will leave the lights off during the whole treatment. I hope it will work.

Perhaps some Seachem Stess Guard would aid wound healing.

I don't think that we have that here in Romania, but I will look for something similar. Thank you. But is it ok to use it during the treatment?

It's a product that increases the slime coat. The salt will do the same thing and that is effective against velvet. So add back your salt and keep on keeping the lights off.
