Yes I did a full corse of the Bifuran, that is when the Cories started to die. Maybe they were too sick to handle that medicine?

So far today, Angel is still hanging out in the upper back corner, she doesn't eat more than 1 pellet a day but looks better. Violet is eating much more and wasn't hiding out all day like she was. Misty still hides but swims faster and she eats more too. Maybe they are on the mend... I hope so. I am watching the test results of the water with good water changes too.

Unhappy Not over yet I am afraid....

Well Angel just died today, so I guess they are not better yet. Misty looks very much like a pine cone this morning. She probably will be next.

I'm sorry, Kitty Whiskers. I would agree with Callistra. If you can locate the Kanaplex, give it a whirl.

Kenaplex says 1 scoop to 5 gallons of water. How much should I add to a 1 gallon tank?

It's important the scoop is level because you can easily get a 2x-3x dose if you don't level it.

You take 5 tsp of tank/dechlorinated water. Dissolve the scoop. Take 1 tsp of the mixture and put it into the 1 gallon bowl. Toss the extra. You'll need to mix this up fresh each time you dose.

Ok thank you :) I just ordered it online today because I can not find it near here. It should be here by the 19th the web site said.

Meanwhile I took out the 2 Bettas and the Cory Cat and put them in 3 different 1 gallon glass fish bowls. They wont have heaters, but I put them in the warmest room in our place. I left the Otos in the tank, I can't catch them anyway because they are way too fast!

I got the Kanaplex today in the mail. Should I treat the 3 fish in their 1 gallon fish bowls that are unheated and treat the otos in the 30 gallon tank? Or should I just place the 2 Bettas and Cory cat back in the 30 gallon where the Otos are to treat them all together?

Personally, I would not put them back in the tank yet.

Are they acting any better/different since you removed them?
