I recently got a group of 4 Orange Lazer Cory's from Aqua Huna and have them in my 10g quarantine tank. I noticed that a few of them have some fin rot or perhaps just damage from nibbling/abrasive maneuvers. 

The tank in question was housing a few plants, snails and this group of corys. I have since removed all of the plants and snails so that I could start any treatment needed.

Should I dose ICH-X or salt, or none of the above and stick to frequent water changes until they appear healthy enough to move into my main tank? My concern is they may have a disease that I'm not familiar with.



The one on the left has a bit of the tail and right pectoral fin missing. The fish on the right has a section of their dorsal fin missing. The other two fish not pictured here appear to have slight rips in their tail and dorsal fins.

Only the fish on the left seems to be struggling around the tank, everyone else appears happy.

It's beenabout a week and I've been doing water changes daily and topping off the salt content to maintain the levels. Testing water and it has been consistent. However, there doesn't seem to be much change yet.

Also was wondering if it is safe to move out individual s who appear in better health or just wait for all of them to look healthy.
