I have moved the larger goldfish to a quarantine tank (ie. 5 gallon stainless steel pot - all I have at the moment), added 10 tsps of aquarium salt and about a tsp of API BettaFix, along with the same water purifiers I use in the big tank.
* Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?
Rash on the underbelly of the larger fish and red vein-like streaks in fins; acting erratic at times
* Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.?
Larger fish stays on the bottom of the tank, though will swim around actively to eat, rarely comes to the top of the tank; has fins clamped most of the time. Smaller fish sticks with the larger fish, though does come to the top of the tank and seems more generally active and has no rash
Not sure what else to do!
