I have a question about you spoon method for acclimating. Do you just add 1tblsp from the tank into the bag every 5 minutes or do you take out 1tblsp of water from the bag as well?

Thanks for the help man. My corys are great, the red gills are almost gone. There is a hint of red but they are definitely recovering. I think the tank at where I bought it had ammonia in it which cause the red gill due to irritation.

I found one of my Corys like this. It was fine yesterday but then tonight he developed this. I'm not sure what it is. Does anybody know what it is?

All I have for treatments are Seachem Paraguard and Cupramine. I don't have anything else and they are hard to find here.

Someone said in this thread you have to acclimate the fish for 2 hours. Does that apply to all fish? I've had fish for 6 years now and when ever I get a new fish or move someone to a different tank I always let the bag float for 15-25 minutes and add some new aquarium water to the bags during that time. I've never had a problem so that's why I'm curious as to how much time the fish actually have to acclimate.

I think it's safer to do so but then again that all depends on how long have they been in the bag for, parameter of water in the bag, and type of fish.

Perhaps hardier fish don't need to acclimate for that long. I know my platys and zebra danios only took one hour to acclimate and all of them are fine.
