Hi all, my 9 year old goldfish has a fungus ion his upper body.  one on each gill which I as able to remove.  He also has one on each eye.  I was able to get art of one off of one eye but the other one is large over the eye and I can't get it off.  He also as one in the middle of his head and it looks like each fin has the start  of one where the fin meets the body.  I have all three fish quarantined and added ich-x and salt and doing water changes.  He definitely has perked up in the last 24 hours.  It is NOT ich, which I found from my research tonight, but the store where I buy my supplies didn't do enough research and claimed even if it wasn ice the salt and ice-x  would be ok.  What do I do now and which med is o.k.  Do I treat all three fish even though the others show no sign of the fungus.  By the way, they are all in the bathtub and love it!!!  I don't have a quarantine tank because they have never been sick.  I will appreciate any help because I can't find a vet that treats fish in my area.  God Bless.  Deby
