  1. the fish in the second picture and the fish in the others (other than the 2nd pic) are two different fish.. correct?

    no - only one redcap oranda in the tank

    Besides some scales missing, I really now dont see anything wrong. I see a color change happening. :thumb:

    yeah - he's always been missing that scale on the right side.
  2. The other fish look good, no signs of streaking. I think it would be tough to grab him in a colander every time I feed them. Might be traumatic for him too. I do have metro-meds. I will start cycling the qt tank (I'll add water and a filter from another tank) and put him in there.

    BTW, this is not the new fish. This fish has been in the tank for about 6 months.

    My Oranda Steve got a couple of white pimples on his wen. They seem to be a bit smaller today. Please have a look at the pics below. Thanks.

    The white patch behind the eye looks a little strange - anything to worry about?

    Thanks!

  4. I do have a question though. I the second pic, there is another fish in the picture, and the bases of his pectoral fins seem to be blood red, and this could be a sign of really heavy flukes and/or an internal bacterial infection. Have you noticed anything off with this fish, such as bottom sitting, fin clamping, darting, or flashing? If so, I would start another D&D thread, with more pics.

    Yes, I started another thread http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/99896-bloody-fins-on-pearlscale/ That is why I was taking the pictures.

    Please take a look, thanks.

    I recently noticed bloody streaks on one pecotral fin and 2 caudal fins of my pearlscale PomPom. Noticed from pics that some red on body too. Any ideas?

    Thanks for your help!

  6. Some updated pics - more added to the album. with higher resolution and zoom.

    Things do seem to be improving with just the salt and melafix - the gill cover is almost healed, and no spread. The metro meds arrived today. Do you think I should start on the medicated food, or just wait and see, maybe add the maracyn(s)?

  7. Thanks for all the feedback. Right after my original post, I transferred the fish into a 10g QT. There was still some salt in the water from the QT period, but didn't remeber how much. Did a 50% change with .3% salt in the new water, and half dose melafix. So there is somewhere between .15% and .3% salt in the tank. (next time I do a change I will do the same, bringing it closer to .3 if it isn't there) My metro meds have not arrived yet from GF connection (ordered Thursday, AM, so should have arrived saturday -no tracking number provided with google checkout). The original wound on the gill cover is almost comletely healed. The large wound behind it is certainly not any bigger, but is still ragged flesh. Some pineconing right around the wound but that is probably due to inflammation and swelling, and it doesn't seem to be progressing. The wound is not an old wound, as I mentioned, it was only a couple of days old at my first post. I will try to get some more photos posted tonight. And I will look into the trofodermin.

  8. no, there was no trauma during the water change. He may have gotten nipped by the oranda though. It strange that the gill cover seems to be healing, but the fin got worse ( though the base of the fin seems ok) and the area behind the gill is now affected.

    What food should I get, medigold or metromeds?
