  1. Hi I purchase my Seachm Gold buffer from this site pets1.com.au/ Its Australian and items only take 1-2 working days to get here. They sell Prime and the buffer much cheaper than shops ,even after postage costs. I think atm the buffer is on special for 5$. Just food for thought for next time unfortunately they do not sell Saki hikari or repashy gel food.
  2. No problems Helen, thx for the help. Just some more info regarding the growth on the lower back. It may not show up as much on the photo, but this spot does have a white pimple like structure protruding outwards. The one on the lateral line is however more grey as you have noticed. I will observe and let you know if anything changes. Cheers Vincent

  4. Hi guys, I'm not sure if you have heard of this company "Ocean Nutrition" But just wondering if you have used/heard of the goldfish pellets, what do you think of it? Any positive or negative reviews? Here is the nutrition profile http://www.oceannutrition.eu/en/products.aspx?Product=premium-goldfish-pellets any info would be great Thanks
  5. Hi All, I've noticed a small bump on the side of my goldfish today. Looks like a pimple. reading prev posts I agree with Helen and Alex that it is some type of bacterial cyst. Just wondering what salt concentration I should add if the cyst does burst. Tank parameters Ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 13, ph 7.8, API test kit, 40 gallon tank with 4 fish. 90% water change 1x per week, last done 3 days ago. no new fish no meds, no strange behaviors. Additives i use are Seachem gold buffer and Prime. I have 1250 aqua one canister filter. Thank for any advice guys. Vincent
  6. Heres the link to a pic of the bumpts http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k546/sod84/DSC05251.jpg
  7. Hi Helen, I think my fish has the same thing 2 x bumps on 1 side, one of these bumps looks like a pimple. If it does burst what salt concentration should I be doing? I really hope the other tank mates dont eat the puss. Thats gross ;( Unfortunately i have no access to a hospital tank. thanks for the fantastic info
  8. I hope he will be ok while im away. Thx for your help alex. What do you think it may be, still flukes? or possible SBD
  9. currently its 0.2% salt. i've only done 1 round of prazi so far. Planning on doing a big water change today. I wasn't going to do the 2nd round of prazi, as he doesn't seem any better at all. And I also wont be able to follow the water change regimes that is required with the Prazi when I am away. If required I can do 2 rounds of prazi treatment when I come back towards the end of October.
  10. heres the video, sorry that it took so long. But lots of last minute wedding things to do http://s1115.photobucket.com/albums/k546/sod84/?action=view&current=(_zpsbebb26cf.mp4
  11. Here is another video. He does try to eat, but he is not as aggressive when he's competing for food. I been feeding him omega one sinking goldfish pellots, about 2 fingerfuls for the 3 of them 2x per day. I also fed 5 spinich leaves on i think Monday.
  12. Hi all, So my poor oranda is not doing much better. In fact it seems like he's showing symptoms of SBD. I saw him this afternoon bottem sitting, but upside down i thought he was dead. then he rustled a bit and he is now bottem sitting upright again. He sometimes headstands in the middle of the tank, looks like hes going to flip over, then he rustles and returns back to normal position agagin. Could this just be a case of SBD?
