    Important Sick Goldfish - Need Help Asap

    Sorry about being away, just had to take some time. All three passes, the Yuan Bao, Lionhead, and ranchu. Thw Yuan Bao for entirely covered in these black spots that seemed to eat away at the skin, and I have no idea what they could have been. He seemed fine in the morning, moving more than...

    Bristle Nose Pleco

    I'm sorry to hear that. You have some significant stocking issues, would you like to discuss those? It may prevent other fish from trying to jump (and trust me, goldfish can jump)

    Important Sick Goldfish - Need Help Asap

    Got a chance to watch and look at some of the pics, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to match up. The black spots on my Yuan Bao sort of look like abnormal ammonia burns and are larger... The weird thing is, the sick/dead ones went through a 30day parasitic treatment that included cupramine and...

    My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!)

    Yes, and I initially thought it was finrot, but I've never seen finrot like this. The tails seem to split at nearly every ray ans become incredibly inflamed to the point of septicimia in 2-3 days. I've not seen finrot where it wasn't gradual degradation of the tail; they just died 2-4 days...

    Important Sick Goldfish - Need Help Asap

    I can't currently watch a video, do you mind giving me a quick rundown? Sorry! My main confusion is absolutely nothing has been added to the tank since last November. No plants, inverts, fish, decorations, filters; just nothing...

    My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!)

    What would you recommend me testing? I don't have a phosphate test, but my goldfish tank is currently the only one I'm dosing with any ferts and that I throw calcium into. The tds and hardness seem fine, would this show up on another test? And would it explain the tails and black spots?

    Bristle Nose Pleco

    I don't want to be rude, but do you think you could type a little more slowly? I'm having a hard time understanding what you're trying to say. Do you know any of your water parameters?

    Bristle Nose Pleco

    They turn white when stressed, and unfortunately, there's just not enough information to be sure. Can you please list: Tank size Tank mates Ammonia Nitrite Nitrate Temperature This may help determine the recovery time and/or why your pleco attempted to jump. Does her belly look swollen at all...

    Important Sick Goldfish - Need Help Asap

    She lost an eye roughly a week before she began bottom sitting, which I just attributed to the sudden half blindness. The eye had healed really well. I believe it's been 3 weeks since that point? I'm assume disease for the tail, since it seems to be accompanied by sudden death or serious...

    My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!)

    No, but I've been doing 50% every other week. I don't normally do weekly on that tank, and at first I was thinking old tank syndrome, but the pH isn't that far off, and the water is still moderately soft

    Question Female Betta Laying Eggs?

    It just means she wants to breed, probably saw her reflection or something. The eggs won't hatch, and she'll probably eat them soon. It's rare, but it does happen every now and then. Keep a very close eye on your ammonia and nitrite over the next week, there's a good chance of a spike.

    My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!)

    I had 6 goldfish in there, took out the Yuan Bao to medicate kanaplex again (whole tank received a dose, that was when the ranchu's tail first started, the Lionhead lost an eye, and dropsy started for the Yuan Bao, and I figured it was easier to dose the whole tank). Current count is 3 goldfish...

    My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!)

    Thanks, such an odd thing! I know I have some reef medication that's supposed to treat flukes and costia, as well as prazipro. Not remembering the name of the reef one... Works for fresh and salt though. Which would you recommend? My liontail had been bottom sitting more, but that's been over...

    Important Sick Goldfish - Need Help Asap

    Update to this thread: My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!) everything is much worse now. My Lionhead died yesterday, she had been bottom sitting more than normal, lost an eye 3 weeks ago, got the weird tail damage within the past week. I assume the eye damage was something...

    Red Blotch Disease?

    Very odd. Corydoras aren't my specialty, but do you mind listing ammonia and nitrite to start off with? Do you have a bubbler or sownthign else that will agitate the water's surface?

    Oak Leaves?

    As long as the leaves were not collected from an area with pesticides, should be all good!

    Question Does My Betta Have A Tumor?

    Looks like a tumor to me as well, the most that could be done is surgery to remove it, but if it's not bugging him, that's not necessary. It doesn't look like it's in a bad place either, he'll probably be just fine

    My Goldfish Is Sick... Again (also Long Time No See!)

    Hey all, long time no see! Sorry bout that, life got really crazy and hectic the past few months. Long story short, had to move out of town for work, all my tanks are temporarily in the care of someone I trust. Having issues with two tanks, one was already a problem tank so I'm not surprised...

    Help What Kind Of Snail Is This?

    Looks like either a young ramshorn or the other type that resembles tiny ramshorns, real specific I know, lol. Probably a ramshorn though, not a big issue at all
