Bob the Goldfish's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. No medication was ever put in. No strange markings or anything on any of the fish. Filter = AquaClear 70-gallon No water changes as of yet (have had new fish for 11 days). Fish are fed Tetra Goldfish Flakes twice a day (though it would be constantly if it were up to them!). Water temperature = 75 degrees (same as room temperature) Current pH = 7.7
  2. Technically a new tank (40-gallon) as it was completely restarted after the last of the previous fish had died. Four new small fish (a Comet and three Commons, as far as I can tell) have been put in, and were fine until today. This afternoon, one of the Commons was sitting on the bottom, breathing rapidly, indicating that it was stressed for some reason. A few hours later, it was dead. Ammonia = 0 Nitrites = 0 Nitrates = 5 pH = 8.0 (since brought down to 7.8) The other fish are still fine and are constantly DEMANDING to be fed!
  3. Weekly water changes were being done, anyway, and still are.
  4. Spot may be a bit bigger now, with a possible second spot beginning to appear on other side of fish. There is a noticeable lump on the anal fin. Also, there is noticeable white on the left eye.
  5. It's been around a week and there is no change - either in the lump itself or in the behavior of the fish.
  6. Just noticed it a few days ago. I have had the fish for a number of years.
  7. The spot appears to be smooth, is indeed white, and there is no red around it. As far as I can tell, it is not bothering the fish.
  8. Goldfish Problems: Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0.1 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 4 * Ammonia Level(Tap) * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 * 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? 40 Gallon * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? AquaClear * How often do you change the water and how much? 10 Gallons - once a week. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 10 Gallons * How many fish in the tank and their size? 3 medium-large female Commons. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? * What do you feed your fish and how often? Flakes - twice a day. * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? No * 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? White lump just above gills. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? None
  9. Well, here's what I can provide: Ammonia level (tank) - 0.1 Nitrite level (tank) - 0 Nitrate level (tank) - 4 PH level (tank) - 7.6 Tank size - 40 gallons Size of water change - 10 gallons Fish - 3 medium-large female Commons Food - flakes, twice a day No new fish added in many years. No medications in the tank. White lump found on side 2-3 days ago, hasn't changed. Behavior is still normal.
  10. The water is changed about once a week. There are three similar sized fish in the tank. I have had them for a number of years now and they have grown a LOT.
  11. It is a small lump on her side, just above her gills. Behavior is normal. 40 Gallon Tank PH = 7.6 Ammonia = 0.1 Nitrites = 0 Nitrates = 4
