    Fish hanging out at bottom of tank..

    Okay, I got a picture today of the white thing that looks longer now. Never seen an anchor worm, but not sure if that's what it is? If it is something, IDK what to do to get rid of it. He has been hanging at the bottom of the tank for a while.

    Goldfish - Beginning of Fish Bloat

    I'm going to fast them both for a few days and see how it goes. I did end up feeding a pea in two halves today and turned the water up from 72 to 74 over the course of the day-- and when I came back home the Top-bound fish was swimming around without issue and the bottom fish was also swimming...

    Goldfish - Beginning of Fish Bloat

    Yeah, they were in a 20g and I moved them to a 29/30g.

    Goldfish - Beginning of Fish Bloat

    Thanks. No visible spots on the oranda or anything-- though she has the opposite problem that I've posted here on before (she likes to sit in 1 spot on the bottom of the tank until I come near the tank). I feel like I'm failing my fishies :(

    Goldfish - Beginning of Fish Bloat

    Hi, backstory: My favorite goldfish passed away around 6 months ago from swim bladder issues (or something) -- at least, he had the symptoms of bloat - he was constantly floating upside down, couldnt keep his belly in the water etc. Poor guy. Broke my heart.... His tank mate, however, was fine...

    Fish hanging out at bottom of tank..

    Nothing not visible in the attached photos. It did have some hairlike thing on its wen, but it seems to have gone away... i think it was actually hair from water changes (The last picture shows it a little bit) :(

    Fish hanging out at bottom of tank..

    I read Oranda's require a bit higher heat than typical goldfish, so i keep it at 72 (it goes to 74 with the temp outside). He eats like a monster. ;p

    Fish hanging out at bottom of tank..

    Fish seems to be fine normally? It has had some longer poo with like a singular air bubble in it and some clear-ness, so not sure if that's some parasite or something. But it hangs out on the bottom of the tank a lot -- still eats and swims around when I turn the light on and feeding etc, but...

    Just leave bacterial bloom?

    Is there anything to do when it happens? My tank water looks like it's about to have a bloom happen, though it's very light right now. However, I am not sure if I just wait it out or should be doing something/adding something ? NOTE: I JUST yesterday took the carbon out (and replaced it with...

    Seeding a tank (or ensuring it )

    Thanks - I ended up removing about 99% of the gravel, i left a little around two ornaments for now (aesthetics mostly). Unfortunately there are some fine pieces of 'dust' like gravel pieces in the tank that IDK how to get rid of. My Gravel cleaner cant get enough suction to pull it up... :(...

    Seeding a tank (or ensuring it )

    One of my tanks has Gravel that I want to remove - I want to go bare for feeding and cleanliness of the tank overall (Goldfish). I have taken some of the ceramic rings from my other fish tank and placed them in some mesh bags to use just to help after the removal of gravel. However, my AC70 and...

    Goldfish- Sand, Gravel, Bare

    Hi, I have a goldfish tank that has gravel in it. I had older gravel in another tank for quite a while with my one goldfish, who was fine with it and didn't much disturb it. But I have this new fish that likes to pluck it around and he doesn't seem to be as good with extending his mouth as the...

    Is this the start of something bad? (Ich?)

    Thank you :) I thought it was just a turn but I'm nervous after having lost a goldfish a few months ago :( While I have you, my tank is set to 72 (with it being 74 from the current temperature here) - should I raise that up for the Oranda? Can't really find anything solid that says 'this is the...
