Cory catfish red mark #1
Can anyone help my cory catfish has this red mark on him just wondering if I should be concerned. Have tested all the normal water parameters and they seem okay. He is the only one out of 8 that has this mark.

Re: Cory catfish red mark #2
To me, that looks like a simple superficial marking/feature pertaining to that particular fish, rather than anything to be alarmed about. If the insides of the gills were inflamed/blood-red in colour, and he was behaving differently or not eating, that would be a different matter entirely. If the situation changes in any way, let us know and we'll advise further. How long have you had him and the rest of the shoal?

Re: Cory catfish red mark #3
Yeah they are all happy and snuffling around. The redness seems to have gone down alot today so must have been as you said. 7 have been in the tank about a month the other came with the tank and he is huge compared to the rest
