Hi,

I purchased 3 panda cory's around 3 weeks ago from my local fish shop to place in with my platy fry. After a week I noticed one had a strange fluffy looking patch on his (presuming it's gender) on it's face between it's eyes. Having looked at recommendation online I turned the temperature up and added a small amount of aquarium salt to the tank. I've regularly done water changes and recently removed the substrate from the tank. Today I decided I would move the 3 cory's into the 200L (52US Gallons) and when I remove him I decided to check his face a little closer and noticed it hadn't got any smaller as I first thought and that underneath it looked red and sore. I'm fairly new to the hobby and have already saved a dying betta and managed to raise 30 platy fry and just wanted some advice on what would be best to ensure the little fella pulls through. I have attached a photo to the post.

Tank Water Readings
PH-7
Ammonia-0.25 ppm
Nitrite-0.5 ppm
Nitrate-10 ppm

the fish is probably dead now but it has/ had a fungal infection on its face.
