I've had my goldfish for 2 weeks now and they are all doing fine. I own one red cap oranda, one calico oranda and a black ranchu. Bought them all the same day and they all live in a 65 gallon tank. I do 60 percent water change every 6 to 7 days. The water is fine but I noticed today some black on my red caps wen ... do any of you guys no what it is ? Is it serious ? And how to treat it . Thanks

Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/109162-goldies-ryukin-need-your-help-please/ Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Bloody streaks, frayed fins Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? March 11 - Red cap bottom sitting, bloody streaks & not eating (not even peas). March 12 woke to leaning sideways at bottom of tank (still not eating and mild blood streaks/spots) so did an 80% water change. Today fins are very bloody and slightly frayed but swimming better now, still low but not bottom sitting, and ate peas. My red cap had a red spot some time ago but no torn fins and over time it faded. As seen above he was bottom sitting and lethargic/not eating so I did a large water change (placed them in a bucket in the meantime to make sure they wouldn't be too stressed). This afternoon after we got back from a day out, her fins are frayed and looking awful. PIcs attached. I think it's nitrate poisoning or septicemia. I think I need to give antibiotics like tetracycline, salt or continue treating with melafix... but I really don't know for sure and I don't want to do anything without knowing for sure. I don't have anything except salt, prime and melafix on hand and I normally shop at goldfishconnection but I understand that closed... so I need another place to buy meds as well as what I should get. Thank you so much!! Brains fins Ammonia levels of the tap
Hi all. After my fish of 7 years Nymeria died last year, I've tried tropical fish keeping as something different. It was fun at the start, but I never had that same connection I had with goldfish. So now I have gone back to goldfish! Here are my two new ones I got today. A little cute orange oranda and a red cap I'm in love again!
Not the best by far, I didn't use macro and she zooms around her side of the 55 really quickly. Currently she has most of the plants cause she doesn't eat them like the commons do XD She is the only fish who will swim up to the tank to see me :3 I love her chubby face! But I am not positive she is a girl. Her vent isn't quite an outtie but it looks more like a female vent than a male vent, and her shape seems more female. Argg. Guess I have to wait to see if she gets breeding stars or not!
