  1. Oh ok. Unfortunately when I checked on the tank a little while ago I found the cory with fungus had passed. 😢 He seemed fine this morning so I'm not sure what happened. In this case should I keep the kanaplex in the tank to just try to treat the cory with fin rot? Or could the disease from the cory that passed have already spread to the others?
  2. Oh ok so I already put in kanaplex yesterday and I do have ich x, but does it kill the bacteria? Also on the ich x bottle it says it can stain things like rocks in the tank, which I have, so should I be worried about that? Edit: I just realized you said you can use ich x and kanaplex together only when you are adding the kanaplex to their food... I already have kanaplex in the tank so should I try to remove that with carbon first? Also I don't know/don't have Focus so can I leave that out if I medicate the food?
  3. Ok, sure. The fourth picture is the cory with possible fin rot.
  4. A few of them I have had for a little while, but most of them for around 2 months.
  5. I have started noticing that one of my panda corydoras has a white (possibly) fungal growth on its head. I'm not sure if it is fungus or cotton wool disease. The infected cory's health hasn't been the best since I got him. I bought the cories online and had to convert them (using drip acclimation) from a pH of 6 to 8, so I think that may be a big part of why he/she has been stressed. The cory also might have fin rot because its fin doesn't seem to be as full as the other cories. The only other symptoms I see in the tank is one cory that I noticed yesterday to have what looks like (fungal??) fin rot. I added a dose of kanaplex yesterday because the possible fungus didn't become super noticeable until today and I wanted to treat the cory with possible fin rot without stressing it out by moving it or killing the bacteria in the tank. I probably shouldn't have put in the medicine without researching a lot beforehand so if I need to I can do water changes or use carbon to get rid of it. The tank is 20 gallons. pH 8 Nitrates (I haven't tested super recently, but right now the only fish in the tank are 7 juvenile corydoras and two baby platies so I'm assuming the nitrates aren't very high) Hardness 17 GH Nitrite 0 Ammonia 0 KH/Buffer 6 (?) Water Temperature 75-76 F Cory with possible fin rot:

    Camallanus worms?

    Sooo I started levamisole treatment today, and one worm is already coming out of the platy, but none of the other platies have worms coming out (yet). Could this mean that the worms haven't spread to the other fish yet? Also, I moved the platy to a breeder box with a separator at the bottom for when the worm falls through, because knowing my platies they would all try to eat the worm.

    Camallanus worms?

    Ok, and also if any of them have more babies later, will they be infected too? Also do I need to treat my betta tanks too? Because I definitely shared tools and stuff between the tanks. They both look fine and healthy but apparently camallanus worms are extremely contagious?

    Camallanus worms?

    So I also have some platy fry in a breeder box in the tank, do I need to remove them during treatment? Are they affected too? Also, all 5 of my platies are female, and they all recently had a batch of fry each... So it's possible they may have more, and does that mean the fry will be infected and when the platies eat the fry they will get infected again?

    Camallanus worms?

    I'm looking those over right now and I'm confused, does the kit only come with the measuring spoon if you get 52g of the powder? (sorry I know this is a silly question) Nevermind I'll just get the powder not the kit

    Camallanus worms?

    Yeah she definitely looks like the first picture....😬 I'll buy some levamisole as soon as possible Also do I have to treat with levamisole a few weeks after the first treatment? Because I will be going away from home in less than two weeks
  11. One of my platys has a very thin needle like red stick coming out of her anus, and after researching it seems like it could be camallanus worms. I noticed the possible worm a few weeks ago, but it was brown and I could barely see it so I didn't really worry. She and another platy flashed a little bit a week or two ago but they haven't done it anymore. I've also seen one cory flash a few times today, but I don't know if that's related. Does this sound like camallanus worms and what treatment should I use? I'm really worried because it seems like the worms are hard to get rid of Also I dont have a picture because the worm is very thin and hard to get a photo of pH 8 Nitrates 10-20 Hardness 17 GH Nitrite 0 Ammonia 0 KH/Buffer 6 KH Water Temperature 76 F
  12. Oh ok, she doesn't seem to have rapid breathing and her fins aren't clamped. She's swimming around the tank normally, and I haven't seen her flash against objects today. Is it possible that it is stress? Or something related to her pregnancy?
  13. My water parameters are fine, last time I checked. Visually the platy looks fine (I think) but I'm not sure what the other symptoms of gill flukes are
  14. So the white bump has gotten better on the platy but I noticed the past few days that she has been flashing against the sand and plants a few times and she also has done this weird motion where she wriggles her body (not really like shaking it but like curving and bending it side to side). She also is pregnant I think, I thought she was too young but she has what looks like the gravid spot and her belly is big
