  1. Continue at the full dose until you've completed the full 14 days minimum treatment. While she is still being medicated with the food she should be kept in quarantine. After she's finished treatment and has recovered she can be reintroduced
  2. He has one, but it obviously isn't big enough or smelly enough Lol they're used to him sticking his face in for a drink But I guess when you're trying to dodge large feet that's a bit of a different story! thanks
  3. He only does it if he thinks no one is watching, and I got a sneaky pic of him in it I set up the shell pool for him, so he's been running through that He's never had a go at the fish and actually takes very little interest of them, so I don't think he'd ever grab one I couldn't get the video to upload so here are some pictures. It's definitely not as bad as I thought it was now that I can see them side on. There's already some nice growth over some of the wounds so I think they're a day or two old. And here's the fin damage
  4. Ok. Thanks, Alex! The video will be about 10 minutes so let me know if you think it's worth doing something like that. I hope so too- he's chewing the corners off of the ply sheets as we speak...

Daily hikari lion head * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? no * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. prazi, metro gel food, salt. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? written below * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? no Harry has developed a fascination with being an aquatic dog, and has been jumping in and out of the pond. I have tried to stop him and put up a net today but he pulled it off, so I am going to be making a chicken wire cover shortly. He hasn't actually grabbed the fish, but has still caused damage just being in the pond. At the moment I've covered it with plywood sheets. My calico ryukin just has some minor fin damage and my raunchu is fine. He has scratched a lot of scales off of Bubbles and Mr B, and has really done a lot of damage to Bubbles fins and Wen. At the moment I have them both in a 40 litre quarantine tank with a sponge filter. I will separate them in bigger tubs tomorrow. I am going to salt straight up to 3% now and do some rounds of prazi later on since it's been a while, but my question is whether it's worth doing a precautionary treatment of metronidazole food on Bubbles? The damage definitely doesn't look too bad but he has been beaten up the worst. I will be getting a video shortly Thanks!
  6. that's very nice! I love how big they get!

  8. Hi, have you noticed any clamping and did you do a proper quarantine with salt and prazi on your fish? And what is the temperature of the water? nothing that is mentally stimulating other than food. With that being said, think this is worth moving to diagnosis and discussion where you can fill out the remaining questions. As for the water parameters, could you please provide numerical values.
  9. If they're not inflicting any damage on each other or ones not getting overly stressed out, there's usually no need to intervene Have you been able to sex your goldfish? i.e. looking at the vents and presence of breeding stars?
  10. Thanks for the answers and the video. They look and are acting completely normal in the video and their behaviour is not indicative of flukes, so no need to treat as yet. As lisa said, you will need to carry out routine fluke treatments on your fish, usually every 6-12 months however if they're not showing symptoms, you generally only need to carry out a couple rounds of treatment just to reduce the population. Since you haven't done a proper quarantine on your fish, if they don't develop symptoms I'd wait until after the tank has finished cycling before doing a few rounds of prazi and salt.
  11. If you think they are showing symptoms of flukes, could you please fill in the questions at the top of the page? What you could also be seeing is irritation due to the fluctuation in cycling, however fish are more susceptible to parasitism when they're stressed out which ammonia will cause. As lisa has suggested, if you can take a video that would be great!

  12. 29 gallons could also make a nice betta sorority! There's plenty of options for you to consider, so have fun and good luck
  13. Great gifts everyone!! I got an 88g fluvial CO2 kit, and that same book, Fancy goldfish: A complete guide to care and collecting
  14. These pictures are great!!! Certainly hope to see many photo submissions from you now on
