  1. Oranda keeps getting split fins

    You could try removing the Pleco and seeing if the fin issues disappear I went ahead and did that. He's now hanging out alone. I'm gonna keep my oranda in the QT for a while longer just so he's got time to heal up. Also curious to see what happens with just the telescope in the main tank. Maybe there's something in there that's messing their fins? This seems like a good way of spotting it if there is.

    So I just noticed that my telescope has a piece missing from her tail... I guess it is the BN?
  3. David is gone :(

    Sorry for your loss
  4. Hi from Florida- Any other Grad Students?

    Hey there! It's nice to see another S. FL goldie lover Love your fishy!
  5. Oranda keeps getting split fins

    That's good to know, I'll go ahead and salt the tank Interesting. They really love their spinach but I guess I'll move it to a snack instead of meal. Thanks!
  6. Not just one....

    So cute! I'm loving your new ryukin.
  7. Just ordered a fish!

    Congrats! I'm dying to see your new baby
  8. Oranda keeps getting split fins

    Thanks Well, I have noticed both of my goldies being jerks to him but I think my telescope is worse. I have seen him latch onto the food and I always try to drop it next to the driftwood so he'll be able to eat it under the wood where the goldies can't bug him. I also think he's pretty brazen because he has no qualms with snatching their meals from under them! He just kinda hunkers down and ignores their pecks. I don't have much experience with BN's but I think he looks pretty well fed? :/ Okay, let's just see if there's anything to this by separating them. And to clarify, I didn't mean that you were starving him, but that maybe the piggy Goldfish were stealing all of his food like mine do There may be no connection between the Pleco and the torn fins, but I'd rather test this first rather than medicate unnecessarily. Ok, I've got him in my QT but haven't added any salt. Do you think that it'll be bad to add it in since I just finished the prazi and his tank was salted throughout the treatment? I worry about overdoing it with the salinity. Just out of curiosity, why should I stop the veggies? Is it bad for them? I've always heard it helps keep them regular. Half a cube of the bloodworms for the whole tank, right? I am feeding Saki but I do have lionhead. I just think they get floatier on lionhead so I try to feed it sparingly.

  10. Oranda keeps getting split fins

    I'm pretty sure he's a BN but I've attached photos so you can see for yourself. I feed him 1 - 2 Omega One Veggie Rounds at night before bed. He also eats pieces of soylent green gel food whenever I feed that to my goldies. I will go ahead and try out the Super Green, hopefully it'll work better for them As for how I'll go about the QT, I think I'll put my oranda in the tub alone. That way, like you said, I can medicate him. I just always feel bad about separating my silly pair. ^^;

    Ok, here's the pic of the tank. I'm about to do a WC now .
  12. Oranda keeps getting split fins

    I would but my internet is down at the moment, can't access a photo hosting site at this time :/ I will try to load one up tomorrow.And yes - that's how I went about the prazi and yes the bn was in the tank. He didn't seem to mind the treatment.
  13. Oranda keeps getting split fins

    Ok - I will give it a try next time I clean the tank. I'll try to weigh them

    You might be right about the overfeeding. I started off underfeeding my fish out of fear of over doing it but that seems to have lead to my ranchu's early demise. Since then I've bulked up their feedings. To be honest, I'm not sure how much I should feed. :/ I used the liquid prazi pro and did the 5 day rounds. I had the salt at .3% for the double dose round then went to .1% for the remainder of the treatment. I don't have any chemical media. Also - thanks! He's a little brat but I love him.
