  1. Ammonia is 0, been super observant of readings since I lost 3 to some unknown virus/bacteria/whatever it was. Thanks for every ones inputs!
  2. Im not sure if this is the right spot for this, so please feel free to move it if it isnt. I noticed over the past couple days my fish has devopled a bunch of black dots all over his body, like hes turning into a dalmatian It looks as if someone took the end of a paint brush, dipped it in black paint, and then dotted him up. He just finished a 14 day round of MMs and I think I remember something somewhere saying sometimes fish get black on them after MMs? Am I crazy? lol Heres a video from before: And one of now (Although Very bad quality. He wouldn't stop wiggling at all ) Should I upload to youtube for a better quality?
  3. Well I'm beyond relieved to hear that. I think I might keep them separated tonight just because I don't want any undue stress. After the crazy outbreak and deaths I want it as stress free as possible. Thank you very much!
  4. Just wondering what the reason for the chasing and nipping is. Breeding? Bullying? Heres a video:
  5. So I suppose I should have knocked on wood after that post. I woke up this morning and found the black ranchu dead. Im pulling my last fish out and starting him on metro. Gonna drain the tank and disinfect if. How long does it usually take to cycle such a large tank with 2 fish? Is it worth the risk? The one with dropsy seems to be 100% better, but im terrified to put him back in that tank.
  6. Aw, thank you Alex. I understand now. Im glad its nothing major and he'll be okay
  7. The one on the gill plate looks sunken in and the ones on the tail are raised and bumpy. I thought burns too but it just seemed like an odd presentation. If hes been in super clean water for a week, wouldn't they have shown up earlier?
  8. I feel like I've been posting a lot lately. Anyways, my new surprise fish has been in qt for about a week now. It has developed a few black spots that I am unsure of. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level (tank): 0 * Nitrite Level (tank) 0 * Nitrate level (Tank) 0 * Ammonia Level (Tap): 0 * Nitrite Level (Tap) 0 * Nitrate level (Tap) 0 * Ph Level, (Tank) (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 * Ph Level, (Tap) (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.8 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? Api drops * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? No filter, Bubbler only * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime double dose * Water temperature? Average room * How often do you change the water and how much? 100% every 2 days * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Today 100% * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? rougly 10 gallons running 1 week * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 fish about 4 inches * What do you feed your fish and how often? every day Omega One * Any new fish added to the tank? Yes, this one * Any medications added to the tank? Prazi Double Dose, salt .3% * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) None * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Black dots * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? None * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Prazi added about about 4 days ago Double Dose * You can really help us to identify with the concern more accurately if you post some pictures and a short video. Black spots are only ontop of the back fin and one on the gill plate. The black around the base of his tail was there when I purchased him. Pictures:
  9. Everything seems to be going perfect now. Everyone acting healthy. The pineconing has gone down almost 100% and I cannot wait until the 14 days are over to add him back with his friends. Thank you all for your support and help
  10. Everything seems good today. I have noticed one of my fish in the main tank bottom sitting a bit. He stirs when I tap on the glass but then goes back to sitting. I've uploaded a video of him. Fish 1, with dropsy, is eating well and swimming around a ton. Doesn't seem like hes sick at all besides the pine coning. Another thing I've noticed is yawning. Is this okay a few times a day? I don't believe its a constant behavior. I did change 100% of the quarantine tanks water in much smaller batches and he doesnt seem to mind at all. Oh! Also! I noticed this very strange poop in the main tank. Its literally a corkscrew. Other then this poop, they have had unusually long poop also and seem to be pooping a lot for how much I feed them. (My mom had to point this out to me) something to be concerned about? Her mentioning this made me remember a few weeks back when I left for about 3 days. I fasted them but when I came home, they were still pooping up a storm. The poop: Heres a video of my other fish:
  11. Alright, sounds good. Thank you alex
  12. Alright, hes sorta eating. Ive been soaking his food in a mixture of garlic juice and his normal food smushed up. He(she?) takes it into his mouth and chews on it for a bit, but I see a lot of little debris coming out of his mouth. Sometimes he sucks it up and then spits it right back out. Hes swimming around a lot and is no longer bottom sitting. Perhaps hes stressed about the new tank? Missing his friends? Should I do another water change tonight? Add some metro powder to the water? Pull my hair our?
