Recently bought a Banjo Catfish and he’s quite good at hiding, so for the first week I didn’t see him in the community tank, when I eventually did I realised my Angels had been nipping his tail, I have since moved him into a Cory only tank where he’s getting on well but where he has been attacked is now fluffy.

I’ve treated the tank with salt following the guide by Aquarium Co-Op but wondering if he can even tolerate salt and if anyone has any other guidance. There’s not a great deal on the internet when I have Googled diseases in these fish. 

I’ve tested and parameters all are fine, it’s just a knock on from an open wound after being attacked. 

Thanks in advance. 👍1D7639CE-92CA-4BBE-8498-7E636DCE78F9.jpeg.1f11472b451c803f488fd1d81835a92d.jpegE218C1BA-30BA-44BC-8C93-20C86C106223.jpeg.1cd5edacfec728564ff724676dd411f3.jpeg

@Coluthanks I appreciate your reply but I live in the U.K. and those medications are not available here

As your in the UK I would quarantine and  treat with NT labs acriflavine and aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 2 gallons I would start at 1 table spoon for 3 gallons gradually increase it over 24 hr if you notice any destress do a water change to the lower the level of salt acriflavine treats fungal and bacterial infections coupled with the salt is an effective treatment
