dear all, please help,
I have a very poorly goldfish and I am out of ideas. I know this wouldn’t have started if I hadn’t let the water quality slip, I’m already aware and beating myself up, parameters are now all healthy but I can’t get him better, he is getting worse.
I have been treating as per instructions with API melafix for bacterial infection (water change first and into a quarantine tank).
After the most recent water change (instructed after 7 days of treatment as per the bottle) I have given him a salt dip (the pic). I have never had a fish get to this point and am wondering where to go from here. What should I treat him with?
Can this be treated or does he need euthanising? I don’t want to kill him but he is so red and must be in pain. It’s been just over 2 weeks.
