I would figure out what is wrong first. I don't think it's just a case of
the violent catfish and the necrotic bacteria. Bacterial infestations like
that usually don't occur and go hog wild without something being a miss. In
fact I've seen on many occassions where this same stuff was happening, moved
the animal to a different, thriving tank and the disease goes away, the
tissue heals. I would look-in-the O2 (you are using that air pump right?)
and wether you've grounded the tank or not. These are two common issues.
Water params might be all goofed up. I dunno. I would investigate before I
got anyone else involved though.

> I lost one greenside and the other has now started to show the same
symptoms of the whiteish pink tail and caudal fin erosion. -in-this rate ill
have nothing in a week. I dont have any other tanks so removing and treating
isnt an immediate option. Looks like I need to go collecting again in about
a week.
