  1. Hi all. Wow, it's been a bit since I've been on here. I ended up getting a butterfly telescope buddy (Goggles) for my Oranda, Brinty, several months ago. Everything's going well, however, recently a red spot has appeared on his head. His behavior is still normal; he eats fine, poop is normal, etc. I have added Prazi and .02% salt to the water as a precaution. I'm thinking it may be irritation from some sort of parasite or possibly a minor bacterial infection, but I'm honestly not sure. I hope you guys can see what I'm talking about in the picture, I had to play around with the contrast and exposure to make it more visible. It's a bit hard to catch on photo because it's on top of the red/orange part of his color. It is definitely more visible in person.

  2. Hi everyone, I combed the internet hoping to find a similar case to my new sick goldfish. I went to the petstore and couldn't help but "saving" this little guy who had some beginning symptoms of fin rot and one red spot at the base of his top fin. At home, he was in my hospital tank which is a 10 gallons tank (30-40% water change daily while cycling it with Seachem Stability and Prime). He was swimming normally and eating normally for a goldie yet I medicated with 8 teaspoons of aquarium salt. Two days later, the red spot disappeared from the base of his top fin and was framing his mouth. He was now having a long red spot looking like a moustache. Eating and breathing normally. Then, the next day the red spot was gone and red streaks appeared instead on its tail fins. I did a massive water change figurimg it could be ammonia poisoning and primed it too. Today I bought Tetra Parasite Guard and am stating this treatment... Any suggestions for my sick goldie? I really am new to sick fish since my goldies have always been healthy. I really wanna save this lil guy!! Thanks for any advice. Note: It really makes sense to me that my fish is dealing with a Costia parasite. I'll try to take a clear picture tomorrow!
  3. Please help! Diamond, my biggest goldfish is always very active and friendly. A big (5 inch body length) begger who loves to eat from our fingers. She seems fine and is acting normal, but today I noticed a red patch near the base of her tail, on her side, that is a little smaller than a dime. It seems to be beneath the scales and the scales at the rear end of the patch are slightly raised. No other issues. We had recently neglected water changes because of being on vacation and then overwhelmed with catching up. It had been 3 weeks. We changed the water today and that is when I noticed the red patch. Following what I've read online, I swabbed the patch with hydrogen peroxide, and added Melafix to the tank after the water change. I'm thinking medicated food might be a good choice and I'm wondering what you might recommend. She still looks good and active and I really want to treat this before it can get worse. I'm also thinking water changes twice a week for a while, but let me know if that isn't enough. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 20 - 30 * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0.5 * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrate level(Tap) 0 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.0 ph * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.4 ph Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Freshwater Test Kit - Drops * Water temperature? 72 degrees * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 60 gallons - running for almost 10 years * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aquaclear 500 and Rena Filstar XP3 * How often do you change the water and how much? 70% once a week, more often when the nitrates get too high - need to do this now. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? today, 75% * How many fish in the tank and their size? 4 goldfish, 1 is 5 inch bodylength, and 3 are 2 inch bodylength. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? treat with Prime and Buff it at water changes * What do you feed your fish and how often? Hikari Goldfish, daily with a fasting day once a week. weekly offerings of veggies and citrus before water changes. * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? So far, just Melafix * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Tank had ich about 6 months ago and finished a salt treatment and temp increase which cured the ich and haven't seen any since. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Red patch in side, scales at the back side of it slightly raised, otherwise looks good. (The spots that look like ich in the fin are actually bubbles in the water.) * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Still very active and eating well. Sorry if the image is too big!
  4. Elton has a red spot his caudal fin right at the top of a split in the fin. This split was there when I purchased him. It's red and about 2-3 ml round. I really tried to get a good pic but only have a cell phone. In the pic where he is out of the water his fins look pink but in the water they don't look that way. There is some veining at the end of his fins but that has not changed since I have gotten him.

Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Salt during 2 rounds of Prazi in the past 2 weeks. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Elton had splits in his fins when I bought him. It was shown on video from RainGarden. However his dorsal fin was damaged by a decoration that was removed when I first got him. His caudal fins had some veining but I thought that was not too unusual because he is a white fish. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? no eating and acting normal If necessary to quarantine I have two options: Move Elton to a 10g with an aquaclear 30 Move black goldfish, Layla, to other goldfish tank temporarily with 2 small goldfish and leave Elton in 29g to treat Medications on hand: (note I live in small town Canada) salt Epson salt Prazi Triple Sulfa MetroPlex KannaPlex Api General Cure ​​ ​
