My goldfish has bright red gills with thin white lines inside along with a white lump or absess. They are also very swollen. She also has blood vessel steaks in all of her fins. She doesn't have any sores anywhere on her body and doesn't have access mucus or slimecoat. She is no longer eating and she stas at the bottom most of the time. The water has tested perfect every time since this started. At first she was sometimes swimming around really fast and jumping out of the water so I thought she had gill flukes. I treated her for flukes and an antibiotic. She's not any better or worse. I used paraguard first with no improvement. Then used API General Cure which has praziquantel and metronidazole together. Still no improvement. Then I used potassium permanganate following Seachems Kanaplex which is Kanamycin. Still no improvement. I am so discouraged. I did give her a break in between treatments cuz I was afraid of over medicating. It's been going on for 2 months now. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. I'm desperate at this point.
