  1. Dropsy Or Swimbladder Or What?

    First of all I want to thank you for your answer! It's really important for me and I appreciate it! I'll get a test kit and let u know asap! At some point I think i saw some pineconing too which worries me. The swelling didnt come overnight. If it wasnt for this instability or disability for him to swim normally, maybe i wouldnt have noticed. But this swelling looks like that doesnt let him swim properly... He swims that way from when he got swollen... And he's that way all the time. Though it's easier to see this when i feed him and he kinda runs to get the food. I dont want him to get worse... And I dont want to put him in the main tank. My other 2 fish are healthy and dont wanna take the risk... But you think there is a risk? Ill start with veggies. Can u recomend some good recipe that could help him? Thanks a mil!
  2. Last summer (August 2006) a goldfish of mine got swollen... maybe a bit of pineconing too but im not sure. Immediately i put it in quarantine. I thought it was dropsy and I followed a medical treatment. It got a bit smaller, pineconing (?) stopped... but fish has been swollen for almost 9 months now. It moves and eats and behaves ok. But sometimes I see some instability.. like swimmin upside down for a while.. >> water test results seem to be ok. >> main tank size 30 gallon (2 goldfish) >> EHEIM 2080 (450gph) >> quarantinte tank size 13 gallon (1 goldfish) >> EHEIM 2222 (132gph) >> 30% water change practically every 10-15 days >> i feed em progold and some tetra bloodworms. sometimes rice. Please have a look at the video below! What do you think?? Any comments more than welcome!

  5. Is It Just Me...?

    thanks for your help! its supposed to be a pearlscale according to the pet shop i got it from... but it looks more like a fantail to me... ill send a pic asap! the last time i did that was about 2 months ago. i do it every 6-8 months. i feed once a day. About 10 progold pellets. i mean for the quarantine fish! i thought it could be swimbladder, but this has been happening for over 6 months... how can this be possible?
  6. Is It Just Me...?

    sure! i'll try... so i have no tests available rite now... results always used to be right. main tank size 30 gallon (2 goldfish) >> EHEIM 2080 (450gph) quarantinte tank size 13 gallon (1 goldfish) >> EHEIM 2222 (132gph) 30% water change practically every 10-15 days i feed em progold and some tetra bloodworms. sometimes rice.
  7. Hi there... (wow it's been ages since my last post! hello everybody! ) So... Last summer (August 2006) a goldfish of mine got swollen... maybe a bit of pineconing too but im not sure. Immediately i put it in quarantine. I thought it was dropsy and I followed a medical treatment. It got a bit smaller, pineconing (?) stopped... but fish has been swollen for almost 8 months now. It moves and eats and behaves ok. But sometimes I see some instability.. like swimmin upside down for a while.. What can this be? Maybe its only my idea that it's swollen??
  8. Emergency Dropsy Questions. S.m.f!

    fish now dropped on its side... is there ANYTHING I could do now. would epsom help at this stage? is the WHOLE tank "infected" with dropsy? should I be aware of this?
  9. hello. fantail was sitting at the bottom. I thought it was dropsy and I used Tetra GoldMed. The fish has not eaten for 3 days. I fed it bloodworms. When I dropped in the food it reacted like its 100% healthy. It CAN swim. Its belly is swollen only from the one side and it has 2-3 swollen scales (from the same side). Whats wrong with my fish?
  10. Emergency Dropsy Questions. S.m.f!

    will epsom draw the fluid out of the body?
  11. Emergency Dropsy Questions. S.m.f!

    Thanks so much! Would "Melafix" or any other medication help or should I stay to temperature rising and epsom? (is epsom a brand or what? where can I get it?)
  12. Hello. I dont have much time that I can be online so I maybe wont be able to reply to questions. Please help me! Water parameters, tank sizes, food etc are fine. A fantail got bigger and its eyes popped out. Probably this is dropsy. So I moved the fish to a quarantine tank with cycled water and cycled filter. I started medication with Tetra's Goldmed but I heard that its not effective so I bought Waterlife's "OCTOZIN". I added GoldMed yesterday. Is there any way I can quit one medication and start the other or I should complete the first one? Is Epsom salt the best thing for me now? Shall I raise the temperature? Can I add salt or Epsom during any medication? The sick fish lived together with 2 other fish. I quarantined it yesterday. Is there anything I can do to prevent other fish from getting dropsy too? Help please! ! !
