  1. Goldfish sore on his back

    Thanks very much for your quick reply. I’ll buy an ammonia test kit ASAP. The wound hasn’t improved with the fungus and bacteria treatment. I’m not sure what else to try?

    No there’s nothing sharp in the pond, it the wound started small but has grown loads.
  5. I have previously treated the pond with blagdon fungus and bacteria treatment but the sore still hasn’t healed. Can anyone tell me what this disease is and how to cure it? many thanks
