"Hello everyone, I am writing because I am concerned about my catfish. Since I started my 10 gallon tank back in May I have had 3 neon tetras, 3 pristella tetras and 2 albino cory catfish. I have never had any problems up until recently, they are all suppossed to be community fish from the Amazon, right? Well, two days ago I noticed that one of my catfish "Al" was not moving around much and sitting ackwardly on his side. I could tell he was still breathing though and thought that he was just having a more inactive day than usual. I began to think that maybe something had changed in the water, but after testing it I found everything to be normal. On Sunday when I woke up I was really upset to find that he was dead. As I removed him from the tank I examined his body; being albino, I was able to see internal bleeding that had occured close to his tail. I was then shocked to find that his tail had been ripped to shreds. I then examined my other catfish only to find that he was perfectly intact. Today however, I noticed that my remaining cory has been rather still just like "Al" was two days before. I checked his tail and am rather frustrated to find that it has been torn up a little too. I don't understand why, but I know that one or more of my tetras are attacking my catfish. The water is fine, the feeding is the same and I have changed nothing, what can I do? Has anyone ever seen this before? Am I able to place him in a seperate stillwater tank to let his tail recover, and will it recover at all?"
