  1. Thanks so much, I just ordered the meds and will start treatment asap! Thanks again!
  2. Also, should I treat my main tank? Is it possible they could have the same thing but not be showing symptoms yet?
  3. I found http://www.amazon.com/APH-Powder-General-Cure-10ct/dp/B007R5M7V6/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1410938259&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=API%28r%29+General+Cure+Powder which contains metronidozole. Is that good? And I should use them both at the same time? Thanks so much!
  4. It doesn't seem to really be sticking out anymore, here is an updated picture. I don't know if it burst or what... He still seems pretty active but I tried to give him a few pellets yesterday and he didn't eat them (which never happens) but that could be from stress so I'm fasting him now. Just not sure how I should be treating him or how long I should keep him isolated. Thanks everyone!
  5. I have PraziPro and salt. Do you think I should start that in the tub with him? Didn't want to start it if you all thought there was a different medication I should use.
  6. Thanks for you reply! I didn't know that they sometimes just randomly lost scales! The large scale has fallen off and I've seen two other scales at the bottom of the tub.

(I know my tank is a bit too small for them, I'm upgrading as soon as I have money. They grew so fast!) * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime * What do you feed your fish and how often? Hikari Lionhead 1-2 a day as well as Repashy Green once a day, occasional bloodworms * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? Added one dose of PraziPro about two weeks ago * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment.I quarantined two fish in it right after it was cycled, about 7 months ago, so I did a few round of Prazi and salt, though I'm not sure how much/how long. Since then, I haven't had to add anything until two weeks ago when I added some Prazi because I was worried about some flashing one of my fish was doing. I only added one dose, she seemed to be fine after awhile and I thought maybe I was just being paranoid and didn't want to over medicate over nothing * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? The big growth on my poor fishy Also one raised scale * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? No Hi Koko's! It has been forever since I've been on. I've returned in my hour of need! I have three large Oranda goldfish and this morning I noticed a large growth on Garrus's chin! I've never seen anything like it and I'm pretty worried! He also looks like he has a large raised scale on one of his sides, but just one. My quarantine tank was broken in a recent move so I have transferred him to a clean 30gallon tub with an air stone. I went to change the water in my 55gallon after I took Garrus out and while siphoning I noticed that I siphoned up a scale. Can anybody help?? I'm not sure what to do Thank you!
  8. Your new apartment/house looks AMAZING. I want to move in please!!!
  9. You mean BESIDES give it to me? Congrats though! Even though you don't need it! I've always wished there was some cool (and safe!) way to connect a bunch of tanks together like condos.
  10. Aha! I was so sure that they laid their eggs at the top, did not know there was a difference in where the eggs were laid! All fears dispelled. Thanks guys!
  11. WOW That size difference is INSANE!! And hilarious/adorable. My husband and I just spent like 5 minutes laughing at how cute they are. LOVE them.
  12. I was just wondering that myself about a 55g! Thanks for asking about it and good luck with adding your new fish!
  13. Thanks so much!! I'll keep an eye (haha) on the bulge. He seems like he may have some other odd things about him, such as his mouth which is all puckered and weird, so the bulge might just be part of him I didn't notice before. Thanks again!
