ugh, well, currently my progress in caring for these fishes hasn't really improved.
the Female I rehomed to my friends place died awhile ago, though we're not sure of the cause since she looked as if she was recovering from Dropsy, then one day she just became less active and passed on.
the male I had awhile a go caught dropsy as well after I skipped a week on water change as I was busy.
at the moment i got a new fella who's got a really nice personality, it's been 3 days since he's been in the tank and he seems to be doing fine. (though i am a bit worried, he doesn't really display his fins and there're usually folded when i'm not playing with him. but he does swim around and actively follows my finger when he starts to stare at me for too long)
all my other fish seem fine though, i hope there's nothing wrong with my water or gravel that causing this reoccurring illness...
my tanks a 5.9 gal (just found out as its a 30cm by 30cm square cube tank, but online gallon calculators are funny)
would it be a good idea to get a gavel vacuum? i've never cleaned the substrate before(only once when i was replacing it but that was about 4-5 months ago) and i don't really know how since i have 4 corydos in my tank
