LDZ Posted March 30 Share Posted March 30 Hey all, I searched this forum and shockingly didn't find anything on barbel erosion in Cory catfish. So here it goes....... I have had terrible luck with panda corys over the last year. Long story short.... I have one Panda left and she is now showing signs of barbel erosion. None of the other pandas I lost showed symptoms of this problem. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 15 nitrates. Weekly 25 percent water changes. Over filtered using a hang on back with a uv light and two sponge filters. I think it's because I cut back on feeding after I lost the others and she had to work too hard in the sand searching for food and nicked her barbels. I have started feeding her more and using wafers. She is active and eating well. Is this contagious to other Cory's or other fish?? (I'm reluctantly considering getting more pandas so she is not alone.) Is it possible for this to go away without medication??? If I have to medicate, should I treat the tank or quarantine her to treat just her? What medication do you recommend? She lives with a giant Betta female and two reticulated hillstream loach. In a heavily planted 15 gallon tank. You have been so helpful in the past and I appreciate any advice I get from this post.💜🦐🐟 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
