Help help help help

Hey there,
Now im sorry for the opening thing but i am in a lot of trouble
ok. So ill start from the start.

So i have my little 29gal and it has been going on great! So
I do the stupid thing and think that Bronze Corydoras are gonna
go well with a Yellow Lab. So i put them in and the Lab leaves
them alone for a while then when they are nnot looking sneaks
up and bites their tail . Now they have almost no tail and they
are just not happy. So i set up another tank (30L Im sorry but
there is only two and shrimp will be going into it). I put sand as the
substrate because i know Corys like that and put some rocks
and a big rock that i took out of my big tank but was still moist
when i put it into the other tank so i think that there will still be
good stuff on it. then i went next door and got a filter (Also in
another tank), Heater (Again in another tank). then i put some
moss onto the big rock and some Pennywort. And have done a
couple of tests all good!. But the corys Not so good. So i got
my nets and caught them put them into bags and floated them
added water them released them. Now one was so happy to be in
another tank he started scoping the little place out (30L long)
And i was really pleased but the other guy (the more severly injured)
just sat there . Then his buddy came over and tried to coax
him to come for a swim. He didnt .

So i woke up like 1 hour ago and looked into the tank the other guy
was sitting on the really bad one. Both alive. Test water again all good.
So my question is now what can i do to ensure these two cute little
bundels of joy live?

THANK YOU THANK YOU

Lots of water changes... Super clean water will be key. You can also use some malafix and pimafix mixed together if it starts to look infected.

It's an African cichlid (labidochromis caeruleus) that should not be kept with SA fish as frequently advised. Unfortunately, I think you now see evidence for the advice "they may be fine now, but eventually...".

I agree with MFD, clean water will be your best bet. Even if test results are good, do a PWC. He'll heal up fine. Good luck!
