I have just realized that malachite green is a deadly toxic to corydoras and is mixed into many "Ick" curing bottles. I had a very healthy 8 month old corydora, when suddenly my clown loach got "Ick." I treated him with my "Ick" cure thing and then he was back to normal. 1 or 2 days later, my corydora got bloated up and started to float to the top. He rested on the surface for a couple days before passing away. I took a look at my "Ick" bottle and it said it contained 75% malachite green.
I AM JUST WARNING YOU PEOPLE WHO HAVE CORYDORAS AND LOACHES MIXED. BEFORE YOU CURE YOUR LOACH WITH ICK, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR ICK CURE DOESN'T CONTAIN A HIGH AMOUNT OF MALACHITE GREEN OR ANY FOR
