  1. Best wishes for Monroe. Is he stuck at the top floaty or just not a happy fish floaty?

    He has his moments where he's upside down, but is usually able to right himself. Mainly just floats around the tank looking so sad.

    It's nice to see you, Sarajo! :hi I hope Monroe feels better soon! :D

    Thanks Stratton! :D nice to see you too!

    Hi Sara Jo,

    It's as Lisa said, but if you feel that some veggies are absolutely necessary to prevent the floatiness, you could try it. Make sure that the MMs are all eaten daily though.

    Good luck, and I am glad you caught it early!

    Thanks Alex! I'll try to avoid the veggies until necessary. Thankfully he's got a good appetite :)

  2. :hi Sorry to hear about Monroe. :hug

    Prazi is OK with Epsom and no veggies with the MMs. How many pellets are you feeding and how many meals are you feeding? Perhaps smaller more frequent meals would help him.

    I'm feeding him 20 pellets a day split up into 4 feedings of 5 pellets. I'm soaking the pellets for about 15 seconds prior to feeding too. It breaks my heart to see him so floaty! :(

    Thanks 4prettyfish :heart me too!!

  3. hey everyone, long time no see! i've been incredibly busy, hope everyone and their fish are doing well :heart

    I have a couple questions for you guys. first things first, Monroe has dropsied again for the 2nd time :( Luckily I think I caught it early because we're on day 2 of MMs and Epsom his & scales are now flat :) I was going to do a preventative prazi round while he's in a qt tank and on MMs since I won't be using salt. Is prazi okay to use with epsom in the tank?

    secondly, the MMs are making him floaty and I was wondering if it's okay to feed veggies between MMs to help with constipation. I've asked this question before but I completely forget the answer :idont:


  4. R.I.P my sweet little oranda :(

    I came home after working the entire weekend ready to do a WC to find Eden stuck to the filter, C-shaped and dropsied. I made the choice to euthanize her almost immediately since I thought she was too far gone. She has always been the toughest fish and I've never had any issues with her. I guess sometimes these things just happen :(


  5. It's recommended to have 10x the turnover rate for goldfish so 550 gph for your 55 gallon tank. A lot of us here including myself also prefer to run 2 filters in case one breaks. If the filter you have now is not causing any problems in your tank and you only have the one fish, I think you could get away with it :) let's see what others have to say as well.

    What type of filter are you using?
