    Ryukin in distress please help!

    if you don't have Prime, add some aquarium salt. that nitrite is causing methemoglobemia which blocks the transport of oxygen inside the fish's body, they're not getting enough oxygen. you'll also need to do more frequent water changes (like every other day) until the nitrite goes down to 0.

    Slow goldfish/infection?

    is the belly evenly bloated or is it more to one side? was she floating to one side? or was the tail floating up? try the erythomycin, seems to be some internal infection causing the bloating and blood spots.

    How do sponge filters work??

    the air pump pushes air down into the sponge. as the air bubbles leave the sponge and rises up towards the surface, they create a vacuum in the middle of the sponge, drawing in water from the sides of the sponge.
