  1. All of the redness is gone. She's basically all Healed and back to normal thanks so much guys!
  2. Today I checked on her and half the redness is gone. Guess I didn't need meds after all, just a prayer thanks guys for the help though! If I ever have a fish that has "septicemia" I'll know what to do thanks again!!
  3. I'll head to the store today after school. The store I go to has a lot of meds so Ill see what I need
  4. Here's a video of her. As you can see it doesn't look like it's from stress, it looks a lot to be septicemia. She's seems to be Healthy and active though. No signs of lethargic behavior. How much is .1% salt for a 40 gallon tank? Sorry I don't know how to calculate that ahah
  5. I found out what his sickness is. It's septicemia. And yes it's definently septicemia. I just checked on her and 3/4 of her has blood streaks. The redness is bold and scary looking. What should I treat her with? I'm honestly not planning on losing her
  6. All the other fish in the tank are doing fine. And yes the marks were new yesterday. I have about 2 tbs of aquarium salt in the tank. Today I took her out of the tank and put her In a 5 gallon bucket with an air stone. I'm treating her with melifix right now. She's pooping and eating fine. The red spots are the same if not...even a little bit worse. And the transparent growth on the inside of the tail is doing a little bit better. I will try and upload a video of her tail with the white growth.
  7. The tank has been running for about 3 months and i added about 2 tbs of salt

  9. Hi guys! So recently I bought a chocolate pearl scale, she was pretty healthy at the shop. When I brought her home I noticed she had a little bit of white growth on her tail but I thought it really wasn't a big deal. But now (got her yesterday, this is the second day I've had her) she has red spots on her tail and the transparent growth stuff has spread more. Help! I don't know how to treat her! I only have hydrogine peroxide, Epsom salt, and melifix. Thanks in advance! Here's a video of her
  10. I see my blue oranda has a little red mark under his head. What do I do?
  11. A few pics of him/her. I'm still not 100% sure it's gender is. http://s870.photobucket.com/user/alexmier51/library/?sort=3&page=1
  12. i dont know how to upload pics
  13. Oh her wen is like your calico's Mikey! Same shape and everything
  14. Ahhh it's okay. I love her the way she is what does wen growth look like?
  15. So today i went to my LFS for some omega one and Saki Hikari (mix both to feed to my fish) and i found this MASSIVE oranda, pushing 8inchs. He was at a price that i couldnt resist ($40)! The thing is, her wen growth isnt very big and i like my fish to have a nice beefy wen. Perhaps theres a way to make it grow bigger? i know genes is a big part of their wen growth but i just want it to grow a little more.Their diet consist of mixed omega one, saki hikari, peas, and bloodworms. i also want to know what wen growth looks like. Thanks!
  16. *UPDATE* all is well now did a couple big water changes and got the nitrites and nitrates out. My PH is still around 7.2~ 7.4 so i guess thats ok because it doesn't it isnt really a big shift in PH. Thanks for all your help!
  17. On my 40g I have a AC 70 and a Fluval C4. On the 55g I'll probably be using a AC 110 and the AC 70
  18. i really cant change the water until tomorrow. My mom would allow it if i change it tomorrow i will probably do a 100% wc or atleast 90%. so far i put the salt in and thats it. and tomorrow i can get baking soda. and with the DPG sale and petco im planning to upgrade to a 55g. so that will be a 100%wc also.
  19. i tested my water again and the nitrites are almost still the same. maybe a little less then before
