CPD's are almost always in some state of mating behavior. The females take quite a hit and when they get to chasing each other they have a tendency to slam into objects/glass and I've had them up and die from the trauma. Luckily they are also very prolific if you have the right setup so replenishing their numbers is quite easy. I still can't figure out why pet stores get the prices they do for them. They're like guppies or platys.

Once they're sick enough to notice it's been my experience that the prognosis is not good. I am a true believer in Kordon Ich Attack or Rid Fungus for treating their tank though. It's mild enough for them to tolerate and it works. +1 for a half tsp of salt per gallon in their water too. Good luck!
