  1. is there anything that I can really do with the rest of my live bloodworms then?
  2. It looks like he is slowly getting better. I am unable to obtain the numbers though.
  3. there is one new fish, and the other has been in for months that has been having the issue. it looks like he is slowly getting better though does freezing the bloodworms actually make it safer? also, how can I tell what kind of bloodworm i have?
  4. they said the water sample was fine. i have added aquarium salt and turned up the temperature.
  5. interesting! I think my goldfish may have parasites on it because there are brown spots on it, and it keeps on rubbing up against other things. I've turned up the temperature, and added aquarium salt. the water stats are fine. not sure what else I can do for him. weird; it started happening even before I fed them the bloodworms...
  6. I just bought some live bloodworms for my fish. I was reading about them online, and found that "their bite is painful even to a human"(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycera_(genus))? Also, I added aquarium salt to my 20 gallon tank. If I were to add bloodworms, would the salt kill them? "they can tolerate low salt levels in the water" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycera_(genus))?

  8. I wasn't sure how to upload a picture. i think it is gone now though.

  10. I noticed on my double-tailed goldfish's fin today that it is red/brownish. any ideas as to what it could be?
