  1. Blood is completely gone from fins (huge improvement over the weekend, after the first WC)

    except for a few dark areas, but nothiing bright red.

    I did the 2 water changes and started the next cycle of prazi pro.

    Is there any reason to continue treatements after the end of this cycle?

    I've seen posts recommening 4-5 cylces of prazi.


  2. What are your nitrate readings? Those streaks are likely to be induced by stress.

    ammonia 0

    nitrites 0

    nitrates 5

    He's still a little jumpy - runs away when I come over to feed him instead of typical FEED ME behavior.

    Also - can't find the food that well. - using a floating pellet right now, and he just mouths the surface in random places until he finds the foods.

  3. ammonia 0, nitrites, 0

    looks like less blood in the ventral fins - the distal portion still has "islands" of blood but the proximal portion seems to be clearing.

    I will try to post pics tonight.

    BTW I clicked to "follow" this topic, but haven't gotten any email updates.

  4. What are your nitrate readings? Those streaks are likely to be induced by stress.

    Didn't test nitrates, wouldn't expect much after 24 hours. I will check tonight.

    I would continue with your current plan (prazi pro/.1% salt). Run 5-6 rounds of prazi, and I would do the 5 day schedule with a big water change on both the 4th and 5th day :)

    Ok, so on the 4th day do a big water change, then again on the 5th, and then add the prazi pro back in ? So one day with no prazi? Why back to back WCs?

    And Congrats!! He's very pretty :)

    Thanks, I saw him Monday, and decided Tuesday to go get him. I was stressed all day that someone else got him.

    What goldfish type is he? Calico Oranda?

  5. 35 gallon tank is up 24 hours with cycled AC 70 filter

    0 Ammonia

    0 Nitrites

    feeding oranda pro

    Took home a beautiful new fish yesterday - he is in a 35 gallon qt with prazi pro and .1% salt, prime

    This morning I noticed faint blood lines in tail fins, which I had not noticed before.


    Do I ...

    a)wait and see

    b)run another prazi pro cycle in 2 days

    c)up the salt

    d)start medicating with metro meds

    e)none of the above

    f)some of the above


  6. After about a week, I checked the chemistry in the qt tank - I was getting nitrites between .25 and .5. Obviously the cycle didn't transfer, - I am making nitrites, but not converting them, so I have been doing 50% water changes for the past few days to keep them down.

    Should I start another cycle of prazi-pro now or wait for the cycle to stabilize?

  7. Update: Been on MetroMeds for 1+ week. (since last Friday) No real improvement in the fins, maybe some of the red on the belly cleared up. The left pectoral, which had been clear, is now bloody as well, but the dorsal seems to be clearing up. Fish is active and eats well - no signs of distress.

  8. strange, pic two shows a dorsal that is slightly damaged, yet it looks fine in the other pics. in anycase, if like the other pics normally, i don't see any reason for concern. wen in all pics looks fine to me.

    I think it was just flopped over a little when I got the shot, but in the second picture, you can see the little white pimple about halfway back on the wen.
