  2. hi there! I’m going to need a lot more information about your tank and fish to help you out, but we will give it our best shot. Any new fish friends or plants in there in the last three months, or live food? Please fill this form out completely - especially the water quality and tank history information. If we can get a picture of your entire setup that would also help, I’m having a hard time seeing much detail in the picture you provided (which could be the fault of my small phone). But generally holding the fish in your hand or a clear container with bright light helps us get a good picture of what is going on Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) * Nitrite Level(Tank) * Nitrate level(Tank) * Ammonia Level(Tap) * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? * Water temperature? * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? * How often do you change the water and how much? * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? * How many fish in the tank and their size? * What kind of water additives or conditioners? * What do you feed your fish and how often? * Any new fish added to the tank? * Any medications added to the tank? * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.?
  3. It started around 4 days ago, small red spots at his mouth corners. Day before yesterday it had almost healed but now it's ten times worse and he keeps lying down on the ground, a little tilted on his side with occasional activity. Other Shub has his top find down the whole time (so something is wrong, but I've no clue what). I'm using Esha 2000 in case it's fungus or rot or something like that + salt bath. Two days ago I had done 50% water change and ammonia cleanse. Didn't think he was gonna make it today.. Could use some advice!!
  4. Sounds good to me! Thank you very much! I've heard that normal salt without additives doesn't have much benefit compared to aquarium salt, is this true? Also, I found a fish scale in my aquarium it's hard to find since I have white sand as the substrate is this normal or something to be concerned about? I had researched about what could potentially be poking out of my female goldfish's vent and I found something called vent prolapse, could that be the case? Will the salt have any negative side affects to the fish? How much salt should I add to the aquarium?
  5. Yesterday
  6. You can use any type of salt that doesn't have additives, if that is any easier Anything that is just pure salt
  7. I actually don't have aquarium salt with me right now since I'm a bit of a beginner to keeping goldfish but I'll get it soon. Thank you! I'm not sure if it's an irritation or something stuck but her poop seems to be really thin as if something is preventing her to poo properly.

  9. Hi Dahling8. Thanks! And you too can sit on the bench and feed them if you ever make it to Italy!
  10. That was cool to go diving in. I did that once with my guppies..lol love the colors of your new fish. 😊👍
  11. Well I haven't seen that before. Looks like a dead leaf from my end. Is this coming from a sword plant?
  12. That looks to be a little irritated....if it was me, I would just salt the tank at .1%. This might help. 😊 Aquarium salt or Morgan's canning salt.
  13. Yes, I have three here hopefully you are able to see it she kept moving around haha
  14. More accentuating photos for my fellow recreational scientists out there.
  15. I read this thread and I have a slightly different looking thing but it certainly looks relative, any advice or comments on this thing would be appreciated. I haven't added anything new, I do have an abundance of nitrates that I still have not been able to cut down enough, Ive been too busy to do really big water changes. the way it looks like its grown out from a central hub makes me suspect it is some kind of fungal mycellium. the idea of under water mushrooms almost makes me want to let it grow and see if it has some kind of fruit/ reproductive body. I'm going to take it out though because the snail pictured eating the black/green algae got to that spot and busted a U-E
  16. Hi Beth, Thats a nice looking fish! I have been feeding my fish Repashy super gold for a few months now, and they will eat it until they pop if you let them. I have used both the cube method and I have made the jerky as well and I find that the cubes are much more efficient for my tank as the jerky causes my fish to go wild fighting over it then they're all up in the plants and rocks trying to get the jerky, one of my more mischievous fish actually disappeared in my tank one day for about 20 minutes and I come to find that it had somehow worked itself into one of the ornaments I had in pursuit of the jerky- causing me to remove that ornament. I feed repashy twice a day most days, sometimes on the 3rd day I'll feed repashy in the morning and pees at night. If I notice they have trailing poop I know I've gone overboard with the repashy so then I fast them for 12-20 hours and if they're hungry all they have access to is algae, my plants, or snail eggs. Hope this helps, Best Regards, Jordan
  17. I seem to have another problem.. On Friday, my female goldfish laid eggs again and everything was okay. Normal stuff. Anyways, today the female goldfish seems to be having something tiny and red sticking out of it's vent. I tried picking it and putting a bit of pressuring on it's abdomen thinking maybe there were extra eggs in there but nope nothing to be found. They aren't worms but it's just a red ball looking thing on it's vent and it won't come out.. What should I do? She seems to be fine and eating well. Very interactive, swimming around, searching through the substrate but I fear that this may evolve into something bigger like maybe dropsy or something like....
  18. Great pics! The pond & fish looks so beautiful and natural. Even the filter looks beautiful and natural!
  19. After the pandemic, I may take you up on the offer! :D
  20. Super pretty! I'm really liking those streamlined fish!
  21. If it is moving around a bit that does mean if you’re trying to remove it surgically you should have better luck than one very integrated into his head, and firm means it could be fluid filled too, you never know. Discontinue or complete the fungus treatment, though. It definitely isn’t that. But if you want to leave it alone and watch longer that’s totally an option as long as he is acting normally and eating
  22. Artic Mama, Thank you for the response =) The bump is very hard and kind of moves around within his wen when I touched it in the past. Does this mean something different than a softer mass? Thanks again. - Pamela
  23. Hey guys. Just wanted to let @Arctic Mama your painting is on its way Im also home schooling Justine and man is it hard I tell ya.
  24. Yeah, tie the stone to the cord and not the glass only because I worry the fishing line might melt if it’s against the heater Smaller fish tend to be faster as well. But if you see any real drama beyond some chasing just use a little plastic colander to float one of them in the fishy penalty box and give them a break.
  25. Oh. That's a good idea. It's just that the heater is made of glass. So i didn't want it being bashed about. But ill try it with the stone. I already have an airstone in there. The sexing isn't really important. I was just curious. Although I am worried about the size difference and Cinders getting bashed about by Jaffa during any potential mating
