  1. Oh I understand. I was in your spot years and years ago. but the problem here is they have out grown they're tank hun. It would be like trying to keep a husky in a 1 bed room apartment. Not much room for the dog to run around in. With 2 fish in there they are starting to show that there isn't much room for them and nip at each other. The redness is cause the filter can't keep up with the waste they are producing. The only thing you can do is more water changes.
  2. Please copy & paste the following form and fill it out to the best of your ability when requesting help for Goldfish Problems: 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.? "If copy and paste doesn't work for you, quote this post and put your answers after each question."

  4. That could be parasitic or bacterial. If you did get this fish, I would QT it and do a round of Prazi and salt as a first step. Fish lice are a big problem. They can lay there eggs in your tank a keep hatching if you don't kill them really good. I don't know kinda up to you if you want to spend time and money to save it.
  5. If there is just one in there now, it should be good for a while hun
  6. You ph what is it out of the tap? Goldfish can deal with ph from 7.4 to 8.8 so if its in that range you will be fine. The thing to worry about is the KH. If the KH is to low it will drop down your ph and then you will have a ph crash. So I would test your tap water for PH and KH and test your tank for KH. Also lets only feed them once a day for a week and see if the ammonia will go down. They will be fine with a restricted diet for a while.
  7. I got one question for ya Have you tested your tap water and if so what is the: Ammonia Nitrites Nitrates and PH You can treat the tank or in QT with Epsom salt and kanaplex
  8. Well its really kinda simple why they are fighting. The tank is too small for them Goldfish need at least 20 gallons per fish. Please read our Guidelines. It will help you out a lot.
  9. I don't have FB either hun. FishyMandy runs the one for this site. @FishyMandy When you can you can post any of the threads you think would help on FB hun. That would be great hun. Anything we can do to keep it going is great!.
  10. Have you tested your tap water for ammonia? How long has the tank been running? If you can I would highly suggest using either Prime or a API Wondershell for you water dechlorinator. They both work much better than the other stuff.
  11. Hey I just was taking a closer look at your tank. Are those ornaments hollow in anyway? If so I would suggest taking them out. They can cause a whole bunch of issues with fish. Can you find methylene blue? Did you get the salt up higher?
  12. WOW! This is a bad cause of Dropsy's. The first thing I would do is either get the fish into a QT tank with a heater. Get the temp up to 78-80F also you need to get some Epsom salt. Epsom salt helps to reduce the swelling. As for meds. I know that @Arctic Mama is the best on the forum. If I remember right you will need KANA and maybe Metro. But lets see what she has to say. How often are you cleaning out the filters? When you can a full tank shot. Dropsy's can be caused by parasites or bacteria
  13. Espon salt is the only salt to use for Dropsy's. Regular salt will make it worse. Epsom salt pulls the water out of there system. Regular salt puts in back in there system and then they can't get rid of the fluids. When was the last time you cleaned out the filters? Can we see your tank?
