Re: Nitrite #1
What fish are "claros" or should it be Corys?

I wouldn't use chemicals just do a water change and check on a daily basis. Do remove the food that the fish don't eat, rotting food is a source to Amonia than Nitrite.

Re: Protozoan treatment or gdex? Shopping at 10am #2
also look at http://www.jbl.de/en/online-hospital (the link found on this site). Click on Diagnosis, based on pictures then on visible on body, skin and fins and then scroll down till you come across Lernaea.

Does it looks like the line on the tail? If yes, then it might be a Tapeworm and Gdex is the answer.

Re: Protozoan treatment or gdex? Shopping at 10am #3
I have used Waterlife Protozin after my Angel was attacked and had cloudy eyes, did work but dyed the silicon tubes in green. Currently, two of my fish are/were infected with parasite that caused white patches on the skin, I have used esha 2000 which has solved it on one and seems to do the same on the other. Exit is mainly for Ich but I don't think that you have it (eSHA states that it is safe with filters) while esha gdex is treatment for tapeworms which I also don't think that you have. So if I would have been in your position I would start with eSHA 2000 just because you will be able to mix it with Exit and Gdex if you have to. See https://www.eshalabs.com/

As for the nets I soak everything in bleach, overtime it will destroy the netting.

Re: Fungus? #4
Is eSHA safe with corys? I have lost 2 of my Adolfo's, 1 today and another 3 days ago. They were not infected and I always made sure that they have enough to eat.

Thanks

Re: Fungus? #6
Today is the last day ( 3/3) of the treatment, what next? Do I carry a water change? Clean the water with carbon or do nothing? Is it safe now to restart inject Liquid Carbon?

Thanks

Re: Fungus? #7
Thank you.
The tank is 50/50 sand and gravel, the gravel is smooth with no sharp corners.
Thanks again.

Fungus? #9
Hello.

Today I have spotted what looks to me like fungus on 2 of the fish, the Cory's mouth and the Bosmani's back/top. Am I correct? If it is fungus I plan to use Esha 2000, is there also a need for Exit?

Thanks

Re: Rainbow neon with red growth #10
The fish is not a Tetra but a Neon Rainbow / Melanotaenia praecox.
What you describe was just discussed on the Rainbow fish group and it was agreed to be fish TB. I hope that Fishlady will pop up soon.
