Fishforlife Thank you everyone I am really hoping it is a normal fungal infection and the kordon rid fungus works

I wasn't sure, which is why I found a link to a disease and treatment chart.

Seattle_Aquarist Hi Fishforlife,

Without a good picture it is hard to verify the LFS diagnosis but it sounds like fungus. I have not used Kordon Rid Fungus but when I had a bad fungus infection in a Corydoras API Melafix did a good job. I do not recommend mixing medications.

ValMM A lot of cases are columnaris.
