  1. Thank you for the warm welcome back. Here is the video: It is a little greenish as I used my phone flash to record the video. I hope it helps and the ranchu seems to want show it off at the end of the video haha.
  2. Hi All, It has been a while since I last post due to taking a break from this hobby. However about 6 months ago I start to get into this hobby again and bought a 40 gallon breeder tank with 1 ranchu in it. About 3 weeks ago, I added two additional goldfish in it (an Oranda and Ryukin) to give the ranchu some company but so far has been problematic. Here is the condition of the tank right now: Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank): 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) : 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 15 * Ammonia Level(Tap) : NA * Nitrite Level(Tap) : NA * Nitrate level(Tap) NA * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) NA * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) NA Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Test Kit * Water temperature? 72 * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 40 gallon - 6 months * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aquaclear 50 + Aquaclear 70 (Added 2 weeks ago with new goldfish) * How often do you change the water and how much? Average once a week - 80% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 4 days ago - 80% * How many fish in the tank and their size? Ranchu - 4.5 inch, Ryukin - 3 inch, Oranda - 3 inch * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime. Recently use Prazi Pro to treat new arrival of the fish including the Ranchu * What do you feed your fish and how often? Give the brand, type of food (sinking/floating pellets, gel food, steamed vegetable, etc.), and how frequently you feed each. - Azayaka - Green sinking pellets * Any new fish added to the tank? Oranda and Ryukin without quarantine. * Any medications added to the tank? PraziPro (4 days ago) * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Prazi Pro * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? All 3 develops black dots/marks. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? The Oranda starts to bottom sit if I am not around. All 3 eats without problem.
  3. Thank you Everyone for your kind thoughts. I appreciate it...Hopefully one day someone can learn from my experience.
  4. The seller said DOA only covered using overnight. I did ask before I decided which method to ship. However In this case, I don't think the weather contributes to the fish demise. According to fedex, the fish doesn't arrive in California until the morning it supposed to arrive at my place. I chose 2 day shipping because if ECR can ship to east coast to west using 2 day shipping, Midwest should not be a problem which proved to be wrong.
  5. Thank you very much browny and dnalex. It means a lot to me. I bought a 20 gallon as a qt tank, prazi, print a schedule and the whole nine yards.
  6. Both DOA .... A lesson learned is I think the seller is not experience with shipping fish. Both were individually packed but I think each plastic bag that they are in is small for their size.
  7. .... sigh I guess it is not meant to be.
  8. Thank you Browny and Hi DNalex! Good to see that you are still around I should know in an hour what the fish condition is... start to get antsy!
  9. Hi All, It has been a while since I last posted on this forum. We donated our gold fish when my job demanded lots of travel and now that everything starts to calm down, I thought to start having goldfish as pet again. So I ordered two Ranchus from bettaworld09 and I am a little worried. ( )They are being shipped using FedEx 2 day delivery and should arrive tomorrow before 10:30 AM. My concern right now is the weather as it is 90 degrees F today and according to forecast, tomorrow would be 97. Do you guys think if there is anything I can do when the fish arrives or follow the regular regime? Hopefully I won't have two cooked big fat Ranchus tomorrow
  10. Thank you for your response, Bodoba! Do you by any chance know if it is contagious to other fish? Before I was able to take all the bits out, I saw a good chunk of it was eaten by other fish.
  11. Sorry, I have to travel for work for a few days. Yesterday evening when I return home, I saw some other fishes have nipped on the tumor/bump and you can see bits of flesh thorn out from it . He was not moving and doing so well so late yesterday night I decided to euthanize him. Does anybody know if the tumor contagious to both human and fish? My wife is pregnant at the moment so I am kind of health conscious with this kind of stuffs.
  12. what makes you think its a tumor? has it always been there? how big is "pretty big"? I have seen on Youtube where people perform surgery on a Ranchu before and it looks identical except mine is bigger .
  13. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level = 0 * Nitrite Level = 0 * Nitrate level = 25 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) = 7.6 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) = N/A Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? = API * Water temperature? = 75 * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 60 gal, 2 years * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? = JBJ EFU 35, Rena XP 3, Aquaclear 50 * How often do you change the water and how much? = Once every a week and half - 2 weeks. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? = a week ago, 75% * How many fish in the tank and their size? = 6 * What kind of water additives or conditioners? = Prime * What do you feed your fish and how often? = Mixture of goldfish connection pellets and Ken's fish krill pellets * Any new fish added to the tank? = No * Any medications added to the tank? = No * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) = 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? No * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? No, fish is pretty active and eat normally. Sorry, I will try to get a better picture when I come home today but the bump on it's back is what I am referring to.
  14. Hi Everyone, So I have been missing for a while mostly due to my work. Recently I notice one of my black Ranchu has developed a tumor on its back. It is doing well and doesn't seem to bother by it at all. Good appetite, active and his mates don't really bother by it either (no poking/nipping). The question that I have is what I should do about it? Just leave it as it is? The tumor size is pretty big for its size... thank you all. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
