Treating endoparasites in corys with drugs metronidazole and albendazole

This is a question I get from a lot of cory keepers. I've never been good with meds, so I hope this paper is helpful.

Using metronidazole and albendazole to treat nematodes in Corydoras virginiae

I also hope you read Spanish. :-)

Cheers, Eric

Re: How deep is too deep?

I've been keeping zygatus, ambiacus and c156 in a standard 75 gal since 2019. Same depth as a 55. You should be okay.

Good luck,
Eric

Re: L024, L025 or something else?

I can't tell you what it is, but for anyone else looking at the photo, here is the same pic with the blues reduced. Maybe this will help you with the ID.

Re: Tatia gyrina?

Unfortunately, when I zoom in on the photos, I can see only one fish clearly in any given photo. I can confirm that you have one male, but I can't tell if you have two, or three.

I've got two males myself, but no females. :-(

Re: Pseudohemiodon in Ecuador

Hi, it looks very much like what we used to call sp. "Tigre" or "Tiger" so far, the mentioned distribution also matches this species. It is not common in the hobby, but now and then there are exports. We have two Pseudohemiodon sp. `Peru`, both which are similar. I think the new...

Re: Help sexing my new L333s

Hi Jaydenjonesy,

They look like they need to get in better condition, but based on this pics, 3 is male, 2 might be male, and 1&4 might be female.

Re: Pleco type ID by mouth?

It really would not make sense as things like oral disc shape and dentition are only single characteristics considered in identifying a loricariid genus or species. - Shane Hi, there is no official key to identify a species by looking on a mouth/oral disk. It's all about experience, one day you wil...
