I have a very sick peppered cory. I'm not sure exactly what has happened. He has been without other cory buddies for two months now but seemed to be doing find in my human mind. He maybe wasn't getting enough food. He could be very stressed from the battle of ich we dealt with in January. The deal is this: going on 4 days now, he has not had anything to eat but a few nibbles from the wafers I've set right in front of him, he's very emaciated so has probably been sick or starved for awhile (I can't believe I didn't notice how skinny he was before he got so bad) He has not been able to swim whatsoever for 4 days. He might move one inch after several hours. He rolls onto his side several times day but always rights himself. This is killing me but more importantly him. My water levels are way off from over cleaning the filter after the ich (I'm obviously a newbie), but all the other fish are doing fine at this point. I purchased the clove oil, but I'm conflicted. Any thoughts? Is he beyond rehabilitation? Do emaciated fish that can't swim anymore every recover from that trauma? Is the best thing to put him out of his misery? Please help! I can't believe the little guy is still hanging in there. He's like a cat with nine lives. He's already been close to death once before but melafix cured him. Help us please!
