  2. Goldfish with dots on tail! Please help!!!

    thank you for answering my question so quickly Disease Diagnostic Form Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) n/a * Nitrite Level(Tank) * Nitrate level(Tank)80 (I know this is high, I've had this fish for about 6-7 years and this is my first fish so I'm not the most experienced... he's never been sick so now I'm trying to the to the bottom of it quickly)* Ammonia Level(Tap) * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) ph 7.2, kh80, cant remember chloramines but it was high * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? tetra easy strips * Water temperature? * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 5 gallons and I've had this tank for about a year and a half (didn't expect for him to keep on growing) * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Top fin 5 gallon gas and I believe the topfin large size filter comes with it * How often do you change the water and how much? I changed it once about every 2-3 weeks * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? I changed the water about 5 days ago about 25% * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 gold fish only * What kind of water additives or conditioners? none but should I buy some * What do you feed your fish and how often? twice daily but not a lot * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? not yet but I'm thinking may erythromycin * How long have symptoms been going on? it wasn't there five days ago but I noticed it last night (I feel awful, I wish I noticed it sooner) and no I do not keep my fish outside... many thanks for taking your time out to read this. let me know if you need me to test my tap but I usually let it sit out for a two days or more before I change it but now I'm considering changing the water in the tank on a daily basis. Will I need to buy a bigger tank? maybe 5 gallons is way too small now that I'm thinking of it.
  3. Hello all, I changed my fish water about five days ago (let the water sit out for a few days) and I did not notice anything wrong with him until last night. I saw a bright red dot last night and this morning I noticed more white dots on his tail. Here is a picture of it.... Wondering what can I do in the meantime to help him. I am going to do 25% water changes everyday (a 5 gallon tank)....
