  1. To be honest im considering putting him down. I dont think he will be able to make a full recovery at this point and I dont think its fair to let him linger like this.
  2. Tomorrow will be the 10th day. The bloody spot came back. Its much worse than before.
  3. Well it does not look infected anymore and the bloody spots comes and goes. He still spends all his time at the surface and it seems like he cant control his swim bladder at all.
  4. Correct, sounds good. Ill keep yall posted if anything comes up.
  5. Alright, got the triple sufla in and both are in the tank.
  6. Yes. Its starting to look like it's getting infected though. Ive been keeping up the every other day wc's. He is eating fine luckily and is able to get the food.
  7. I got the metroplex in and im still waiting on the triple sulfa. I have run out of parasite guard as of today. I was looking him over today and it does not seem like it helped much.
  8. Sorry I have been absent. We just had a death in the family that we have all taken it hard. I have him in a 10 gal QT. Im waiting on the Seachem Metroplex and API Triple Sulfa to come in the mail.
  9. Sorry i couldnt update. A family emergency arose. I have him on the parasite guard. Should i add in the prazi pro? Or just the oarasite guard? Any salt?
  10. If this is my best bet ill go this route. Ill have to wait until I get paid on the 9th. What can I do until then to help him out? Also he is floaty all the time. Video http://vid508.photobucket.com/albums/s323/dakotak_01/Animals/20141228_162127_zpso96ts3vx.mp4

Listed below If someone can give me the instructions for gh and kh tests I can test for those. As far as meds go I have salt, prazi pro,E.M erythromycin and tetra parasite guard. Solo has been floating really bad these past few days, 2 days ago I noticed a bloody spot on his left side and slight swelling. Last night the bloody spot got smaller but swelling bigger and today the spot is a little smaller but more swelling.
  12. Thought you guys might wanna see him now. He's in the tank with the big guys and loving it.
  13. Update!! Fin rot is definitely gone, his eyes are looking good. He has gotten even fatter. Im confident in saying he is healthy now. Thank you guys! I cant wait to add him to the main tank when he bulks up some more.
  14. Sorry I haven't updated. Solo is doing awesome. He is eating and has gained a bit of weight too. The fin rot looks like its about gone and his tail is growing. His poo is a little long but brown and solid. I have stopped the Parasite Guard.
  15. I was able to find the Tetra parasite guard and E.M erythromycin by API. Which is better to use? Also should I add the salt in with it?
  16. So I think I figured out why he isnt eating much. It looks like he has a fungus in his mouth. Its super hard to see in person I know i wont be able to get a pic but it looks a bit like his throat is swollen. Im gonna get the API General Cure tomorrow and see if it helps any. In good new his tail looks a bit better. And I do have Prazi.
  17. No metro meds. I can get them though. It seems his pineconing went away from what I can tell. And hi is VERY skinny. I have only seen him eat once and that was 3 brine shrimp. After he ate the 3rd he spat out every one he took in after that. Here is a video. Sorry its not the best video, someone took my camera out of my room and I had to use the lesser quality one. I can try again if yall need better pics. And just to show how small this dude is.... Goldfish soup with hint of brine shrimp.

Maybe popeye, not 100%. Slight pineconing,major fin rot. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? So far the little guy has been active and swimming around the tank. He hasn't eaten yet but im not sure if that from stress or him not being used to sinking pellets So a lady came in to work today asking about fin rot on her goldfish. I asked her tank size and how often she does water changes. He was in a 15 gal (yay no bowl). I gave her some basic info and suggested she do more water changes. Well apparently that was too much work for her. So I said I would take him. I have him in the 15 gallon QT tank, ill be getting some more salt tomorrow. I have Epsom salt on me right now and a heater if needed. And yes, they brought him to me in a red solo cup.
  19. Thanks guys. I'll get pics later. Hidr what do you suggest as far as other tank mates? I love glass catfish but I'm afraid they might be too shy when he gets bigger and get stressed out. If I get my way I'll have it planted with lots of hiding places for everyone. The Goldfish Mermaid
  20. So as a few of you know I work at Petco. Well a lady brought in 4 black skirt tetra and a Chinese algae eater. An employee said we take in fish, well we dont but the manager did not want to turn her down. So we are stuck with these fish and of course "Hey Dakotak, you like fish, take them please we dont have room". Luckily I have an extra 55 gallon laying around and extra sand. So I got a new filter and heater and food. So now I have these guys. I have been reading some conflicting info on tank mates for CAE's. Some sources say that he will eat the tetras once he gets bigger other says he will be fine. So I just wanted to get yall's opinion so I can start planing on what I need to do for these guys.
  21. Psh, sorry I forgot to respond. Been really busy. I got my plants!! They are holding up well! Thank you!!
  22. Im here! Can I sleep all day instead of working today?
  23. Im down for some please. Its very nice of you Tetra. :3
