Coral Beauty

Has anyone had any success with Coral Bautys? I’ve tried them three times and all of them got fin rot and died. Is this common in them or is the LFS to blame?

Fin rot is usually a secondary infection of wounds. What else lives in the tank?

I only have shrimp and crabs in my main tank, but they never make it that far.

that is not common to coral beauties...they are a pretty hardy fish. I have had mine close to two years now in a semi-neglected tank and it is thriving.

I've had the same experience with a Coral Beauty. He made it around 2 months before he got fin and tail rot and lodged himself between a rock and a hard place to die. Since then, I've acquired a Pygmy Cherub who seems to be doing great under the same conditions. I call him my Laker fish. Maybe I'll change it Bryant 81, boo-yah!

There`s also another senario here. How`s your water conditions. If it is fin rot that could be caused by less than ideal water parameters. Check this out and let us know

I just realized that this March I will have had my Coral Beauty for 3 years. It's never had a problem.
