    Bronze corydora lost a LOT of color during one hour paraguard bath, is it worth it to do one again?

    so one of my corydoras has what i believe is a bacteria infection. i'm treating it with paraguard and just gave him a bath at half dose of the suggested amount. but he lost a LOT of color, think close to what an albino corydora looks like. i won't do this again if it's super stressful and will...

    the most dominant endler in the tank went missing, now one of the other endlers is being bullied and acting weird/sick (he has the shimmies possibly?)

    so yesterday i noticed one of my fish was missing, i've been looking everywhere but cannot find him, so he either died and was eaten by the other fish in the tank or he jumped out and my dog ate him. but now one of the other endlers is being bullied by the other frequently when i was feeding...

    Is low levels of aquarium salt safe for cherry shrimp?

    so currently I am treating my 10 gallon with aquarium salt, as one of my fish needs the treatment. the tank is not normally treated with salt. there are no cherry shrimp in it as of yet. i'm waiting for the illness on the fish to be resolved, and the treatment hopefully should be done by next...

    what are these spots on my corydora? what is the best course of action to cure him of whatever these white spots are (fungus?)?

    so i have one bronze corydora that seems to be suffering from a fungus or some kind of white spot. there are two white spots on the side of his head. i thought maybe it was a physical injury, so i kept an eye on it but it has now been around a week and he still has the white spots. maybe it...
