  1. New Ranchu's red marks and dropsy

    Thanks shakaho!
  2. New Ranchu's red marks and dropsy

    Hi ladies. Apologies for taking so long to come back to you. These fish are in quarantine hence the smaller tank and daily water changes. I have a 300L / 80g tank waiting for them. I ended up treating with kanaplex as I was really concerned with the black ranchu's sudden bloating and dropsy. Unfortunately I lost the calico but the black ones dropsy diasappeared and he shrank back to normal size within 24 hrs of starting kanaplex. 😊 Out of curiosity is it possible that the bloating might also have been a reaction to the salt or prazi? I use prazi powder and noticed he was eating it... 😝

Let me know if there's a better way to do it so it displays properly. Thanks!

PM 1.5 pea (for all 4) * Any new fish added to the tank? All 4 are new * Any medications added to the tank? Currently have 0.3% salt and Prazi round 2, day 2 * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment.

One calico looked skinnier than others and a bit listless on arrival. I've found it "stuck" to the hob intake twice (my fault for leaving it on highest setting but still wouldn't have thought it would be a huge issue for these size fish). Then it started bloating and looks slightly dropsied. Has 3 x red marks on back and one on either side, see photos. Tonight I've noticed one of my black Ranchu is looking dropsied as well. These fish have been imported Thailand to Australia and then shipped interstate again to me from the Australian seller. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? All four are swimming and eating well.
  5. Lump on tail

    On her second round of prazi now so I'll do another 3. I think you're 100% right about the ammonia burns. The black is clearing up even more this morning.
  6. Lump on tail

    Hi Koko. Yes I have metroplex on hand. I've tried to take some better photos. There is a new black spot on her side but one of the older ones is much smaller. The tail is getting much better. http://s1079.photobucket.com/user/Louise_Forder/library/?view=recent
  7. Lump on tail

    Thanks for checking in Koko! She's in 0.3% salt and just had 2nd dose of prazi. The white spots are still there. Tail seems to be improving. I've noticed she's getting some black coloration on some of her scales which I didn't pay much attention to and also the black mark near her eye is getting bigger. There is definite swelling around that area. Tonight I've realised her chin and under her mouth is turning black. It doesn't look like coloration change but more like dark mold?!? Apart from that she is behaving normally and eating. I've taken a photo but the quality is pretty bad. I hope you can see what I mean. Would love your advice or thoughts.
  8. Lump on tail

    Hi again. Just wanted to check-in. The white lump on her tail looks like it's getting better, but I can see quite a few white spots around the lump, on her wen and over her body. I've added some more photos. The ones on the body are hard to see straight on so hopefully you will be able to see them. I'm also a little concerned about her right eye as it looks a bit swollen and there are also spots there too. http://s1079.photobucket.com/user/Louise_Forder/library/ She's at 0.3% salt and prazi, water temp at 24C/75F. Would the white spots be due to flukes?
  9. Lump on tail

    Should I continue with the prazi as well?
  10. Lump on tail

    Thanks all so much! Currently treating with prazi and salt at 0.1%.

    Thank you! First prazi treatment just done.

So far have only fed a small amount once a day so far - Tuesday repashy super green, Wednesday half a pea and Thursday frozen brine shrimp. * Any new fish added to the tank? Yes, I got this Oranda on Sunday. * Any medications added to the tank? 0.1% API aquarium salt. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. This is a new fish that I've had for 4 days so not sure of previous history. Yesterday I added 0.1% salt. No other meds used. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Oranda has a lump on her caudal tail near the base, small white spot on the side of her face and a small hole in her dorsal fin. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? She has been quite skittish, but swimming, active and eating. I purchased this fish from a LFS 4 days ago. They had some lovely fish but some were not looking very healthy so I knew there was some risk here. I saw a lump on her tail which looked like fungus in the shop, but once I got her home I wasn't so sure. She is quite skittish so I was going to treat for flukes straight away. However the lump on her tail concerns me. I would love some advice on what you think it might be and treatment, etc. Thank you! I've struggled to get clear photos so hopefully these are ok. Also video link attached as well. http://s1079.photobucket.com/user/Louise_Forder/media/IMG_8819_zpsagymnk9h.jpeg.html http://s1079.photobucket.com/user/Louise_Forder/media/IMG_8820_zpsfxoogcjd.png.html
