Are  you  using  a  heater  in  the  tank  Jenny?????                

 
 Nope.  Although  I  do  have  one  at  hand.  The  temperature  is  80  degF.  What  now?
 
 As  for  adding  salt,  I  don't  really  know...  Cories  have  a  low  tolerance  for  salt.  I  know  it  is  good  for  fungus,  but  I  am  not  too  sure.  Could  you  please  put  my  mind  to  rest?

 80F  is  fine,  you  don't  need  a  heater.  Add  methylene  blue  to  the  water  as  an  anti-fungal  agent,  following  recommendation  on  the  bottle.  Salt  is  not  recommended  for  cories  or  eggs.

 Contrary  to  cichlids  corries  breed  when  there's  a  drop  in  temperature.    So  the  eggs  would  be  fine  and  hatch  in  low  temperatures.    You  dont  need  to  remove  the  fungus  affected  eggs  too,  in  most  cases  parents  do  that  job.

 Methylene  blue  for  scaleless  fishes?  Is  that  ok?

 The  methylene  blue  is  for  the  eggs.  In  any  case,  corys  have  scales

 Click
 This  site  puts  corys  under  catifsh,and  says  that  they  are  scaleless.  And  this  is  what  I  believed  to  be.  And  for  the  same  reason  salt  is  never  recommended  for  them!  Can  you  justify  your  statement  with  some  more  details

 Yeah  scales  are  there,(  I  have  6  live  specimens  to  closely  observe    Oops  )  then  can  we  safely  assume  that  considering  corys  as  scaleless  is  nothing  but    a  myth.  
 But  would  you  recommend  a  salt  for  a  cory?  Wouldn't  tolerance  to  salt  more  to  do  with  osmoregulation  than  to  scales.  Tolerance  to  salt  by  any  organism  depends  how  fast  its  body  can  temporarily  adapt  to  hypo  or  hyper  salinity.

 i  think  corydoras  have  bony  plates  for  protection,  they  arent  true  scales.  catfish  dont  have  scales.

 Hmm  yes,  no  catfish  have  true  scales.  But,  the  family  callychthidae,  which  includes  corys,  have  modified  bony  plates  on  their  bodies  which  serve  the  same  function  as  scales.  Apologies  for  the  confusion  Oops
 
 With  regards  to  salt,  the  commonly  available  bronze  and  pepered  corys  are  quite  robust  and  can  tolerate  salt  if  it  is  added  slowly

 If  you  scroll  down  to  Encylopedia  section  of  This  Article  you  can  read  that  scales  are  nothing  but  bony  outgrowth  in  fish.
 
 Then  whats  the  difference  when  we  say  catfish  have  bony  plates  and  not  scales.  How  does  having  bony  plates(which  function  same  as  scales)  make  them  intolerable  to  salt.
 
 What  I  am  trying  to  say  is  that,  I  feel(totally  my  thinking,  please  feel  free  to  disagree)  that  scales  or  bony  plates  whatever  the  case  maybe  should  not  be  the  reason  for  non  tolerance  to  salt.  Maybe  catfish  have  kidneys  which  cannot  work  that  hard  as  to  make  their  body  tolerate  salty  condition.
 Where  as  at  the  same  time  I  have  read  that  mollies  can  be  kept  in  FW,  Brackish  water  or  marine  enviorments.  Will  we  give  the  credit  to  their  scales  or  their  kidney,  which  are  the  major  organs  for  osmoregulation

 Puneit,  you  are  very  close  to  the  "real"  reason  for  not  using  salt...many  of  the  so  called  salt  sensitive  fish  come  from  soft,  acidic  waters  with  low  dissolved  salts  (not  exclusively  NaCl  or  table  salt  Smile  but  a  mixture).  They  are  not  adapted  to  handling  exposure  to  salt  for  extended  periods  (due  to  osmotic  regulation  or  whatever).  
 
 Salt  treatments  however  are  invaluable  for  treating  infections  and  in  my  experience,  short  term  exposure  to  dilute  salt  solutions  (<1  teaspoon/gallon  for  <  3  days)  have  no  deleterious  effect  on  cories/loricariids.  It  is  very  important  to  dissolve  salt  before  adding  it  to  a  tank  as  undissolved  salt  can  "burn"  scaleless  fish  and  cause  deaths.  Rock    salt  (from  evaporated  sea  water)  is  much  safer  than  table  salt  as  it  has  no  additives.
 
 I  do  not  know  why  the  absence  of  scales  affects  tolerance  to  salts...when  I  have  enough  tanks,  I'll  conduct  some  experiments    :wink:

 Hi!
 
 Finally  caught  up  with  this  thread  (thanks  to  our  beloved  KEB).  I  have  always  added  a  small  quantity  of  rock  salt  in  all  my  freshwater  tanks  irrespective  of  the  occupants.  And  over  the  past  2  years,  I  have  never  had  a  single  case  of  ich  (unless  you'd  count  the  fish  that  came  with  ich  from  the  LFS).  Razz

 Scaleless  fish  have  had  few  problems  with  salt...I  think  its  methylene  blue/copper  sulphate  and  other  such  anti  parasites  that  are  contraindicated  for  scaleless  fish.Most  such  medications  from  waterlife,aquarium  pharmaceuticals  have  very  clear  warnings  not  to  use  with  invertebrates,scaleless  fish  and  RB's(why  not  RB's??are  they  scaleless  too?doesnt  look  like  that  to  me!!)....I  have  used  many  of  the  above  medications  on  cardinals,neons,not  had  any  casualties,and  successfully  cured.Are  RB's  not  closely  related?
       Recently  used  salt  bath  on  RB's  preventively.No  probs!  Smile
