  1. My order of MetroMeds should arrive either today or tomorrow. I would like to give them to another fish owner trying to save their goldy.. I wonder how I can do that? I can send it to a mod here? Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  2. I am sorry to report that the poor guys have passed away. I was doing w/c on both tanks and sat down for a minute to rest (cuz w/c on the 29g is such a hassel) and that turned into a nap. The canopys on both the 29g and the 10g QT were open and the poor fishies jumped out and when I woke up they were passed away. :( :( I feel so awful. I am going to go back to tropical aquariums cuz I just plain have no luck with goldfish. :( Thanks guys for being so helpful. I don't know what possessed me to not just close the lids before I sat down, especially since I know they loved to come to the surface and "beg" for food when I was around. I just really hope they didn't suffer for too long. :( Caramel had started to look REAL good too.. all his scales were back flat and his fins were unclamped. What beautiful fish Caramel and Frenchy were. RIP
  3. Scales have receeded even further. Now only the hind 1/3 are slightly raised. Seems to be doing even better. =) Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  4. QT procedures began. Am happy to report that the scales are a lot flatter than they were yesterday. Will post an updated topview pic tomorrow after work. They are still a touch raised, but doing a LOT more better after the reduction in salt. Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  5. Will do. They are eating ravenously as of now. It's actually kind of weird, because for the past couple of days the dropsied oranda has been bottom sitting...and now all of the sudden his activity has increased markedly and is swimming normally. Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  6. Yes, the tank has been at 80F since starting the salting procedure. Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  7. Just placed my order for MetroMeds and Jump Start. Heading off to the store in a bit to get the epsom salt for the water change. Is there any chance of recovery for my poor fella? And no, no kitchen scale unfortunately.
  8. No MetroMeds, and no bloating. Yes, pineconing is on both sides. Will try to get a better pic later Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  9. Just thought I would add.. been at 0.3% salt for about 3 1/2 days now. And that should read 10* nitrates so 0 ammonia 0 nitrites 10 nitrates
  10. Hopefully this gives an idea. Params are 0,0,0 pH 7.2. Going to do a 80% w/c here in the next couple hours. Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  11. I have rigged up a little home made sling and will try to get some top views on my cell Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  12. Sorry, been real busy. Trying to trouble shoot my camera. It seems like the battery is kaput. The patches have gone away, as have all of the visible ich spots. However, there is a new symptom.. slight pineconing from the top view, as well as a couple of missing scales. I really just don't know what happened.. I've been real up on all my maintenance.

  13. Am now at 0.3%. My digital camera battery is charging so I will post pictures of the spots asap. Planning on a 80% w/c tomorrow after work. Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  14. I've just dosed to 0.2% a couple of hours ago.. should I do it anyway? Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
  15. I will post a picture as soon as I am able. Params were 0, 0, 5 with a pH of 7.2 as of 3am. Will retest tonight when I get the photo of the patches. It seems to be consistant with a fungal infection from what I read online. Sent from my Ally using Tapatalk 2
