My goldfish has been bottom sitting a lot, I have been treating her with Prazipro for fluke, based on its symptoms of lethargy and bottom sitting. I would like to know the best treatment plan for Yin's fluke, redness and irritation (my panda telescope).
Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level 0ppm * Nitrite Level * Nitrate level N/A * Ph Level, 7.5 Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) * Ph Level, Tap 7.8 (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API strips and drops * Water temperature? 74 fahrenheit * Tank size (how many gals.) 55 gallons and how long has it been running? 2 months * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aqua clear 70 * How often do you change the water and how much? 25% 2x a week * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 25% Thursday * How many fish in the tank and their size? 6 small 1-2 inch * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Tetra water conditioner * What do you feed your fish and how often? Hikari purple bag * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? Prazi-pro * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. 10 tsp salt in the 55, I only did that because I read that the salt can sometimes make the prazi less effective, I started prazi after my water change yesterday. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? my red cap breathes at the top a lot so I was worried it might be gill flukes, there is plenty of oxygen I have a bubble wand and airstone on a tetra 100g air pump, also , this is my main concern because I can see it, my calico ryukin has a couple white lines on him, they are small and do not look like anchor worm, I couldn't find any good pictures of what I am seeing online, but they do appear to move. I have only done one dose of prazi and my carbon is removed from the filter. I did 2 and 1/2 tsp. because dosage says 1 tsp per 20 gallons. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? No, all are eating great and being social, just one breathes at the top a lot I would just like some second opinions or confirmations on what I think my fish have as I have not had goldfish since high school.
