    Please Help! Out Of Solutions

    I missed a ton of info! I kind of forgot you don’t understand the situation! I do a daily 25-30% water change, so my parameters are usually triple zeros (nitrite 0, nitrate 0, ammonia 0). This incredibly low reading is due to the almost constant fresh water. I did a ton of research before I...

    Please Help! Out Of Solutions

    I got 2 carnival goldfish around 1 month ago. They are currently in a cycled 20 gallon quarantine tank. After around 6 days one of the two began flashing, and the other began laying at the bottom. I treated with Prazi Pro for almost 2 weeks, and they returned to somewhat normal. Then one of the...

    Goldfish Anus Bleeding?

    It is a sponge filter, so I can’t really run it empty. I think I will just sacrifice my bacteria and leave the filter in. I can always do daily water changes to keep things in check for a while. Will dose Furan 2 now. I will also look into dosing PraziPro. Are you sure it won’t do any harm to...

    Goldfish Anus Bleeding?

    Also, around a week ago I did notice some darting behavior but I blamed it on skittishness. Is this a clear cut sign I am dealing with a parasite? I have hard good things about PraziPro, will that take care of a parasite? I might start dosing tank with Furan 2 and order PraziPro. Is it...

    Goldfish Anus Bleeding?

    I think I see slightly more red on his other fins where the fin connects to the body. Does that make the diagnosis more clear? So should I go ahead and start Furan?

    Goldfish Anus Bleeding?

    I have lots of Furan 2 on hand, will that do the trick? Otherwise I can get something on Amazon. What would you recommend? Treat both fish?

    Goldfish Anus Bleeding?

    Around a month ago I got a unexpected call about some carnival goldfish that needed a home. I quickly set up a 20 gallon quarantine tank and a sponge filter. When I received the two of them, the orange one was looking very rough. The silver one was looking pretty solid. I have been doing daily...

    I will look into foam. What brand/wattage heater do you recommend for properly heating a 110 gallon in low temperatures?

    Garage Stock Tank

    Fall is arriving (unfortunately), and I have a 110 gallon stock tank in my semi-insulated garage. It has been running for a little over a year, and made it successfully through its first winter. Last winter, the only inhabitant was a 1 inch carnival goldfish. I just wrapped the whole tank in...

    Help Goldfish Aggression

    I have had a few aggressive goldfish, and although the aggression almost never goes away completely, letting it ‘play out’ helps. If the aggressive fish is not physically attacking the fantails, sometimes it’s best to just let them work it out, and learn to cohabit together. Some chasing is...

    Question Hot! What Can Be Done?

    I have definitely had that experience! You could fill ziplock bags with ice, and float them in the tank. You could also freeze plastic water bottles, and float them in the tank. That way when they melt, you can stick them right back into the freezer, and repeat. If you have ice trays, you...

    Mollies In Outdoor Pond?

    Stock tank pond or underground pond? I have a 115 gallon stock tank pond, that I absolutely love. It is above ground, and around 3 feet tall., which means most raccoons, etc. can’t crawl into it. As long as you get some plants growing in it, the mollies can always take cover if a bird or...

    10 Gallon Tank Betta Frantic Swimming, External Parasites???

    My betta has interpreted me with food, so when I am in front of the glass he will swim quite violently. What worries me about your fish is when it darts down into the gravel. I would assume this is some kind of parasite. Kanaplex is my go to medication for parasites, fungi, and bacteria...

    Goldfish Not Growing?

    I took him out to take pictures today. The last pic was taken right after I got him last June. There is no change in growth. Though he is a lot fatter and more orange now.

    Help White Things On Emerald Cory

    Definitely appears to be Ich. Out of all of the bad things that could happen to your fish, Ich is common and usually not life threatening, so that’s positive. The huge problem with Ich is that it is highly contagious. Do you have any other fish in the tank? You are going to want to treat the...

    This picture is from a few months ago. The black tips were healing from ammonia burns. He is all good now.

    Goldfish Not Growing?

    Definitely think he is a common. Here is a picture. His tail is disproportionate to his body, I believe because of stunting.
