    I saw my angelfish and cory flashing or flicking onto some rocks this morning. What worries me is that the Discus might be infected as well. I raised the temperature to 30 degrees. I will do a 30% water change and see what would happen. Nothing is visible on the skin…so not sure what it might be.

    did you check water parameters?

    Since cory’s are armour plated, do they get ick etc? Sounds like water conditions to me. I’d add some Prime just to be sure

    Nothing different…no new additions. I do a 25% water change every 4 to 7 days. The only thing that I might think of is heat. Lately, temperatures were around 33 degrees and water was in the region of 31. But for some days, temperature decreased to 27 and varying in the day. This might have triggered something. So, now I switched on the heater back again which is at 30 degrees.

    Corydoras will still suffer from white spot, unfortunately…

    I was under the impression that whitespot was killed at temperatures above 31C?

    If your water quality is good, then I’d keep a very close eye on the fish before adding treatment. How regularly are they “flashing”?

    Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong but I thought the temp had to be constantly above 31c for a prolonged amount of time (10+ days) in order to completely kill whitespot. Never experienced it so just going off what I’ve read

    niko, when you do your water changes do you disturb your substrate as youve said there’s nothing showing on your fish as yet,
    it could be a bacterial buildup in your gravel/sand.
