  7. Ok my second goldfish has dropsy, I am sorting everything else out, and am going to buy epsom salt. Can somebody give me a list of what to do with the salt and also where can i aquire meds here in the UK? thanks!
  8. Rest assured guys...I have lowered the water level in the main tank, allowing the filter to splash alot more creating more oxygen, since I am using the bubble filter for the hospital tank. It wont be permanent hehe, also...My ryukin floats only sometimes...he will be fine..then one day he will decide to float, I feed a whole variety (not from the surface anymore) JBL Novored flakes... JBL Goldpearls JBL novograno vegetable food Bloodworms... and also cooked peas about twice a week I am gonig to check this uk forum thingy to look for meds hehe, i have to wait for tomorow to get the salt..sucks.

  10. My goldfish Lemon is now in the hospital tank which has 50% water from the active tank and 50% fresh water. (since last night) I understand I must use 1/4 teaspoon of salt for every 10 gallons...and do 50% water change everyday while topping up the salt with the water change removed?
  11. I shall take the pics now...my main tank is still active with my ryukin and Loaches...It has the biggest filter I have, Its been in there for about 3 months now. I took the smaller filter, and used it for the hospital tank, again this has been running for about a year now (switched between tanks).
  12. i am going to get the salt now....i should follow this?? "You do need to QT the affected fish. Dosage of Epsom is 1/4 tsp per every 10 gallons. Please also turn the heat up to 80F."

  15. Okay I am buying epsom salt tomorow to cure my dropsy goldfish. do i need to move my fish to a hospital tank while treating him with this?
  16. tell me the details Where can i get this stuff!?
  17. It no longer matters... He has dropsy...His scales are now protruding, he is hardly eating...so this is the end. since in UK there is no antibiotic foods.
  18. Okay for the past 4 days or so my Goldfish lemon has been acting depressed. He always chooses to lay on the bottom of the tank now, just like when sleeping, but he doesnt sleep he just open and closes his mouth slowly and at a steady pace. He no longer gets exited at feeding times and doesnt seem to be bothered about getting fed anymore. He also doesnt play with me anymore at the front of the tank and doesnt chase my fingers and get exited anymore. I guess he is depressed because he misses whitey his little friend who died a few months ago. What is the issue?

    I do a weekly water change...But when I go away, my sister will only be able to feed them once a day, so that is half as much food, So i guess the water should do okay hehe.
