  7. I have two red cap goldfish. 1/2 inch in size. One of them has a swollen tummy suddenly.. she seems fine swimming normally and playing and eating well. What could it be?? I have a 2.5 feet tank. (17 gallon + tank i guess) The ammonia and nitrates are at 0.. Just need to know what to do..???
  8. i post the reading in a while do you have any idea to why my oranda is running after the pearl scales?
  9. Hi today I noticed by oranda running after two of my pearl scale goldfish for long time. When i went near I saw that two of my pearl scale have scratches on right side of their body. I dont know what could have caused that. Need an immediate advice and help. I am changing their water everyday (20%). I have 9 gold fish in my tank. Each fish is 1/2 inch big. My water parameters are fine. I got my water tested yesterday at the pet store and it was fine. I add water conditioner which is anti - stress (AQUA plus) every time I change water. I also use ceramic rings to keep ammonia low. I have one air filter and other air stone attached to give them maximum oxygen.
  10. Yup...Surely you will see me here as I really love this forum.. You guys are always there in time of crisis !!!
  11. Thankssss for all the help!!! My goldfish feeling much much much better. I removed all the medication using the carbon in the filter. Then I did 25% water change yesterday afternoon added salt. Again in the evening I did a 25% percent water change and added little salt. Today morning they were better. Did 25% water change again today morning. They are fine now. swimming around the way they used to exploring their tank playing with each other and pulling on their coral toy... Hopefully they heal completely in 3 to 4 days. So watching them closely!!!
  12. The reason iuse salt is for their general well being. And it has always helped until yesterday when i didnt add it and just used the medicine for them. right now i did the water changes cleaned out all the brown algae. my fish seem fine i mean they seem to be happy and swiimiing right. I just added the salt and some symptoms are fading slowly.. i dont know wat happened. i want to use carbon for getting rid of all the medicine will it be ok with the aqua salt?? i will get my water tested today and post the readings.. and also add the deatils of the filter in a while
  13. i add one table spoon every 2 days after 25% percent water change.
  14. Is brown algae bad for gold fish what is the reason for brown algae I dont have ammonia issues because i have the ceramic rings which takes care of it. I did water change yesterday before adding the medicine. Eevrytime I do a water change I add aqua salt and my fish are fine. Even any small symptoms they have get healed overnight. Hoever yestrday i did not add aqua salt because i ws using the medicine ... Could that be the cause?? maybe they are used to aqua salt??? my fish are active and all naughty like they always act... i know my tank is small but my fish are not even 1/2 inch.. they seem happy all the time with each other. One fish is the king of the jungle and rest follow him.. they play and i can see them enjoying themselves I have a lot of brown algae in my tank.. will clean it all today
