  1. I have changed the water around 70%, but unfortunately the fish with the large red patch on its fins has died. It seemed to be ok swimming around, but it just suddenly stopped. It has not turned sideways, could this indicate gas in its system? The other two fish appear fine as well but I am now worried they could get the same condition. Does anyone know what it could of been? I am going to order a test kit and will do it as soon as it arrives. Thanks for the help so far.
  2. Thanks for the reply, the tank is filtered, but not heated. I have had a closer look and it does not appear to be a bubble, the fin and area under the eye look red raw. I have changed the water and placed the sick danio in its own container for now. He seems to be ok.
  3. On of my tropical fish (danios) has a large clear bubble on its fin, there is also blood around the bubble. The water is still clear, the other fish seem fine as well. It does look quite bad, I have already lost one of the fish after it jumped out of the tank via the small space in the back for cables. Could anyone offer advice on how this (what ever it is) could be treated. I have added a link to a video below of the fish: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bP-oryLImpk&feature=youtu.be Many Thanks. Test Results for the Following: I have not tested. Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? * Water temperature? * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 28 Gallons 6 Months * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? * How often do you change the water and how much? 1 Month * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 3 weeks. * How many fish in the tank and their size? 3, small. * What kind of water additives or conditioners?

Flakes * Any new fish added to the tank?No * Any medications added to the tank?No * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? See above * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? all hovering at the top.
  4. Thanks for your advice everyone, I will do the cycles and then try a couple of Betta fish, they look very tropical.
  5. Hi everyone, I have rehoused the fish to a giant pond with other fish. Its outside. I went back a few hours after to check on them but I could not see either of the two, hope they have not been eaten. There are other fish in there slightly bigger than them, and also a couple of calf fish. Now I have a tank (link below) with no fish in, and a load of mucky horrible looking water. http://www.seapets.co.uk/products/aquarium-supplies/aquariums/aqua-one/aqua-one-aquastart-aquariums/aqua-one-aquarium-aquastart-320-black-28l.html Can anyone suggest which fish this tank would be suitable for? (if any) The tank is designed for tropical fish so I would be happy to add a heater and get some small tropical fish. Also, What should I do about the water, Should I restart the tank/ clean the filters, then set up a heater and refill it with fresh water. I will then wait 3 days before I add anything? Please if anyone offer any advice I would greatly appreciate it, I don't want to buy another lot of fish and end up in the same situation, not due to money, but I would have nowhere to put them. Many Thanks.
  6. Thank-You James for your long and detailed post. I am going to change the water everyday (80%) until I can find somewhere for them, and then get some very small tropical fish, which is what the tank is apparently designed for. Although I will check back here before I buy any.
  7. Hi, The chemicals are: http://www.amazon.co...c_df_B0037XVLZ0 Thanks for the info they are koi in the garden tank. It is very big (You could fit around 12 people in it as a hot tub) so I think adding to small fish should be fine. I have changed the water again (80%) tonight and they are fine again.

  9. Hi everyone, Thanks for the advice. I have found a large garden tank they can go into, but there are also giant goldfish in there as well, not sure what the correct name is for these fish. Do you think they would be safe? I have added a video below of the current tank. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOQE4QZvn1Q&feature=youtu.be Has something changed in the last few years with tap water? I had fish as a child in a similar sized tank, and used to clear the tank out every week with "fresh" tap water. They lasted for over five years, and the water would always stay clear. They only died when I went on holiday one year and the food cube did not work.
  10. My local branded pet store informed me the tank would be fine for the two fish, Unfortunately I do not have space for a bigger tank. sizes are: 38x30x 33.cm. I am in a bit of a pickle now. I will have to leave the fish in the tank for now, and try and find someone who can take them. I may try and get a refund but I don't really want to give the fish back as I have heard stories that they just put them in bags and then leave the bags in the bin. I will change the water daily until I can sort them. Thanks for the advice everyone. Sorry I do have a filter.
  11. Test Results for the Following: * NO TEST KIT AT THIS TIME Other Required Info: N/A * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 2 Days * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 6 Gals UK, 2 Days * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 , small goldfish. * What do you feed your fish and how often? Once per day * Any new fish added to the tank? N/A * Any medications added to the tank? Yes, Treatment for tap water. * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) N/A * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? No * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Yes Hi Everyone, My first post. Just looking for some advice. I brought a new Fish tank four days ago, filled the tank with tap water (UK) and treated it with chemicals provided with the tank. I introduced two Fantail goldfish. They were fine for the first day, but today they have spent around three hours at the top of the tank sucking in air. The water also turned very misty quite quickly. I changed 40% of the water, and they began to swim around again normally. I am not sure what to do next, I am going to leave it and see what happens. One of the fish's backside also looks deflated, if that makes sense. Please if any one could offer advice I would appreciate it. Many Thanks.
