For 2 months all the fish were doing fine until he added a Dwarf Gourami, and 3 Cories. Since then fish are having their tails eaten off. We assumed it was the Gourami and we moved him to my 150. I saw his tank today and now he's down to 2 Danios, and 3 Neons.(all with their tails/fins nibbled) It only got worse. The only fish that aren't hurt are the Cories and the Mosquito Fish. I assumed it was the Cories because the Mosquitos were in there for a long time with no problems. What do you guys think???
Corydoras wouldn't do that.
An unseen culprit could be fin rot. Adding the DG and the Cory's could have upset the parameters of the 20g.
Either that or since your friend doesn't have a lot of Danios, they started nipping everyone?
