The existing fish have not died, but the sparkling gourami is definitely not well. Fins are clamped and it seems to have difficulty swimming. They managed to eat, which I hope is a good sign.

I also have 4 corydoras habrosus in there but they do not seem to be affected by whatever it is that is that the gourami have.

Did a 50% water change yesterday when the gourami were still behaving normally and another 50% today after I noticed how lethargic they've become. If it's too fast to be a parasite, then probably something bacterial? If it is columnaris then I guess i'll be removing a bunch of dead fish from the tank tomorrow morning :C

Assuming they make it through the night, would General Cure be a good idea or should I try something else?
There really is no active ingredients in General Cure that will be of any consequence here.

The gourami that is ill actually ate?
