  1. Thanks everyone for the replies. They much have just appeared over night, I live in a detached bedroom that you enter via the backyard and I have two fish tanks a 20gal tropical planted, and my 45gal barebottom goldie tank with a lily and a few floating water sprite and the 45gal is the only one being effected. Its weird. I think it just weirded me out because they are in my room! I was scared I would come home from school and have a swarn of bugs buzzing around my room. But, that is not the case. It looks like my goldies ate most of them and the ones that are alive are taking refuge on the lily leaves. I don't have any potted plants in the room, but my sister did just buy me flowers that I have in a vase, but those are still closer to the 20gal and are bug free. Oh well, guess I was more concerned about where they came from too, I do have my bedroom door open now and again to air it out, and do water changes via the window. But, I still think it is odd that they would be only on one tank. But you all are right, the little grazing wont hurt. Thanks again!
  2. Here is a picture of one of the many bugs,
  3. Didn't know where to post this but I am sure it will be moved if it is in the wrong place. I woke up this morning and fed the Goldie's to notice tons of these little greenish white bugs. At first I was like oh no not mosquitoes, but I don't think they are. What should I do? And what can be done about these bugs all the sudden? Please help, a little werired out by them.
  4. That is exactly what it looks like. Haha, thank you so much for the help!
  5. So...does anyone know how hard it is to film a fish bum? Well, let me tell you. lol. Here is the best video I can get. I think the best shot of 'her' (apparently) bum is at the 1:32 1:33 mark. If it does so happen just to be a female thing how does she look health wise? Is she too skinny or just a healthy lookin fish? Thank you for the quick replies and help, enjoy the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKAZlaQqoOM

I have been salting the tank ever to every other water change. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Regarding my black moor, I have noticed for a while a small fleshy nub on his anus. I have tired googling it with no results. I think it may be a worm but would like advice. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc. No unsual behavior. As mentioned this is a question about my black moor and his bum. I have noticed this nub on his anus for months now and figured I would just keep an eye on it to see if there is any change in his behavior or the size of the nub. I havent notice any change besides the fact that my black moor doesn't seem to be rounding in his belly. I hand feed mostly, and when I do pellets I make sure he gets his share. My Oranda and Ranchu have been showing the typical fancy goldfish round stomach but my blackmoor to me has always looked thin. It never bothered me until my brother, who knows nothing of fish, said "Hey, this guy looks a bit skinny" and thats when i really started to worry about the guy. So what do you guys think? Is it a worm? Cause that is what I think it is but I didnt want to do any medication/quartine until I was sure. Here are some pictures! Here he is, looking sleek Here is his belly and just bellow his anal fin you can see a peek of the fleshy nub I will work on trying to get better pictures if needed, but till then this is all I got.
  7. So, I wanted to give everyone who helped an update. Walter is doing great. He healed right away, within 3 days there was no sign of injury. Here are some pictures of the little guy, who is getting bigger each day. Thank you all for your help and patience.
  8. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Walter is doing much better, he is healing rapidly once I changed the water, added prime and a bit of aquarium salt. I was going to do a salt dip too, but once I saw that his wounds were healing I didn't think it would be necessary. I am going to do another water change on Thursday and probably another during the weekend. I thank you guys for all the help. Also, now that I think back on it, in a less panic strickin way I don't think he got caught against the filter, but i think he got caught against the bubbler. I had it placed in the tank behind a potted plant, but it may have been to close together. He is still a bit hidey and he likes to hide behing the potted plant. I think he may of accidently squeezed himself between the two from the looks of it. The bubbler is one of those gritty sandpaper bars, so I can see how he scratched his side up against it. I fixed the placement of everything near it so it shouldn't happen again. Thanks everyone for the feedback.

  9. Thank you Dnalex.with his activity I agree that clean water along with some salt and prime may be the trick. I will keep the topic updated. Thank you for your patience. Its my first injured fish and my fish are my babies, as I am sure it is for everyone. You all can understand my panic, lol.
  10. I am using API drops but i do not have a test for GH/KH. I do however have aquarium salt, as well as prime which I plan on using ASAP. I do not let my water age before adding it. I use a siphon to drain the water and fill it again. I have not used any medication on in the tank. I had him in there for a week alone, making sure it was eating, checking his poo, and watching his general behavior. He looked like a perfectly healthy fish. I added my wee telescope after the week because I noticed the other two bullies from my larger tank weren't allowing him to eat. They have been in the tank together now for a week. Now, this injury had to have happened within 3 hours. I had a friend over and was just showing her my fish and my newest ranchu, Walter. He had no signs of distress or any wounds. When I came home, I went to feed them some peas and went I bent down to look at him I noitced the marks, and well kinda freaked out, lol. He is swimming around contently, looking for food, and begging me to feed him. Since the the sores are on one side of his body it makes me think it was an incident with the filter, but I know you all would know better then I. I am all ears. Thank you for your patience.
  11. We ave a soft water system in my house so there isn't much of a need for a de-chlorinater. About every other week I may add some prime, but I didn't this week. I don't mean to be sharp, but can anyone offer any advice. I filled out the parameters offered you a picture and video of my fish. Now, here is a picture of my tank. If anyone has dealt or seen this before please help a sista out.
  12. Here is the requested video. I filmed it on my phone so it may not be the best quality. He is looking more lively here because he thinks he is getting more food. Please, let me know what I can do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi-Wc-ieha0

But, I go to the movies for two hours and come home to this!!! I did an 80 to 90% water change on friday the 21st and can see water is in perfect condition. I am thinking he may have got stuck against the filter, but I am sooo worried. He is swimming around with some difficultly. He is eatting the peas I put in there, when I discovered his wounds. What can I do for him??
  15. Haha, I think we were all expecting a bit more. But I like the start! I can't wait to start growing green algae, I have a feeling it is going to be a long time before I can. Do your goldfish like to nip at it?
