andieb Posted September 7, 2021 Share Posted September 7, 2021 My fish's face seems to have a really bad injury or fungal infection and I'm not sure how to treat her, any advice would be really appreciated! It's a Corydoras habrosus, I've had her for ~6 months I think. I had them on a mix of CaribSea Super Naturals Sunset Gold and Moonlight sand in part of the tank and Fluval Stratum in the back half of the tank. But I had switched the sand to Quickrete play sand maybe 3 months ago, then noticed some of my corys' barbels were waring so about 2 months ago, thinking it was the substrate change, I switched back to straight CaribSea Super Naturals Moonlight. I can go to the aquarium store tonight to pick up what ever treatment you guys have had luck with. I live in Canada though so some treatments are not available here so it would be really helpful if you could let me know any medical ingredients that work, so I can look for meds that are available here that have the same medical ingredient. I've heard that Aquarium Salt works well but I've also heard that corydoras are sensitive to it. I have Pimafix but I hate that stuff, but if others have had good luck with it with a similar infection, I'll give it another try. I set up a Tupperware tub with sand and some plant cover and a bubbler that I could move the fish into to treat her, if you guys think that's the right thing to do. Water Parameters: pH: 7.2 Nitrates: Almost 0 Hardness: Hard - Very Hard (150) Nitrite: 0 Ammonia: 0 KH/Buffer: 80 ppm Water Temperature: 77.5 F Thank you for any and all help/advice you can offer!!
