I have wonderful news about the condition of my panda cory. So, last night I had a melanistius cory laying on its side and swimming sideways as if half of his body was paralyzed. So, I put him in the breeder trap and floated him overnight. He was gone by morning. My panda cory made it through last night, was still upright, just lethargic and covered in little spores. Well earlier today my fiance had to isolate another cory that was still in the 30g tank, who was ALSO laying on its his side. It was my julii cory. He was gone by the time I got home. So William and I went to our Petsupermarket where they see me at least twice a week on a normal basis, and the lady I was talking to directed me to the new manager who had been there for 2 weeks. I told him my story, and he was really curious. He told me that if it was a fungus, they would have rejected the shipment. So we walked over to the fish tanks, and would you believe it? He took one look at the panda cories and was like ohhhh look at that. One was dead, and upon looking at the others, they were covered in, can you guess it, FUNGUS! He turned unplugged their carbon filters, and dosed every single tank with their industrial strength fungus cure, not available on shelves and safe for EVERY fish. He said "I'm going to give you enough of this to dose both of your tanks. Use 3/4 of it in your 30g and the other 1/4 in your 10g tank. In 48 hours the fungus will be gone. Make sure to remove your carbon filter. I'll also give you a credit for 3 new panda corys so that when we get a new shipment in from our new supplier, you can get 3 healthy ones."
I came home, did a partial wc on the 10g and 30g, removed the filter in the 30g, and dosed up both tanks with the fungus cure. Can you believe it, my little panda cory that has fungus on him is already swimming his tank, and its only been 15 minutes! He's been so lethargic. The manager assured me that he would heal up and be ready for the community tank again in 2 days. :) *stoked!*
