    Massive tear on pearlscale goldfish’s fin

    Heyo! So I recently got a pearlscale goldfish and when I first got him he had ich. I started treating for ich (with ich X) when I noticed his back fin was tearing up a bit. I decided to treat him with both ich x and maracyn Oxy just in case it was actually fin rot and not tear. But today I...

    Pearl scale with dropsy? Or just normal pearlscale?

    Hey there! So recently I had just gotten a pealscale goldfish, and I’m quarantining him in a 10 gallon at the moment. As expected he did get some ich, so he’s being treated for that right now. I did notice that his scales look slightly raised, but that could just be the pearl scale look. I was...

    Will my goldfish eat his gravel?

    Heyo! So I have about a 5in. Goldfish that I just introduced to his new tank. I’m using a fine gravel (not as fine as sand but y’know pretty small). I was wondering if he’s gonna eat it?? I know goldfish eat pretty much anything, but he seems to just be sifting through it all.

    Aquasky 900mm lightning settings for 53 G?

    Heyo! I got this aqua sky a while back for my fish tank to help grow some easy plants, but now I’m getting some algae growth on the glass as well as bits of hair algae on my driftwood.

    White fuzz on plant roots

    Heyo! I was wondering if anyone might know what this white fuzz is on my water sprite?? At the moment I believe it’s only on the roots. I don’t think it’s hair algae, but I guess I could be wrong. Should it be something to worry about? Should it be removed?

    Gold barb with bloat?

    Hey there! I was wondering if anyone knew what my gold barb may have (left one in photo)? At first I thought the fish might be pregnant, but I’m pretty sure he is male.
