  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.

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!
  14. Whoa really? I thought they went up to the top to lay their eggs so I was confused as what it could be. Sorry, the eye bulge is kinda hard to see. It's the black patch on the bottom right of his left eye. It just kinda sticks out a little bit. My last snail died due to salting so I removed the snail when I re-added the salt. I didn't know that Prazi could hurt them too though! Thanks! Feeling much relieved if they're just eggs. I was so freaked out.

    New 55g!

    Doesn't she?? Haha. She always seems to KNOW when I'm doing something related to the fish. She gets kinda nervous and paces around trying to get attention.

    New 55g!

    Thanks everyone!! I'm really excited about it! And it's in my bedroom so I'll get to look at the fishies in bed! The stand is definitely sturdy. The iron and glass are very thick. The person I got it from also has the tank set up on it for at least a year. I've seen ones like it sold in LFSs as aquarium sands. The twirly bits do make it look a bit more like something decorative, I agree. But it's sturdy!

Has had Prazi for two weeks, salt for the first week, ran out of salt for the second week, and just re-added .1% salt * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? He has a strange bulge on the side of his left eye. Not sure if it has always been there. Yesterday I also noticed some white stringy poop. His poop has always been kind of small and light brown. I noticed more small brown ones after seeing the white poop. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? He occasionally bottom sits but has been doing it less and less I recently added a snail to my tank, I did a (not long enough 24hr) QT of the snail and now there is THIS weird stuff in my tank! I scraped it off and it was kind of hard. I was thinking maybe lice or something? But I can't see anything on my fish.. And they don't look like snail eggs... Any ideas? A slightly different issue, here's a video of my fish that's in that tank. I think he has a small bulge on his left eye? I'm not sure if it has always been there or not or if you can even see it in the video... (He also has the weirdest mouth ever) Any one know what that could be? Weird defect? Deadly disease? Bacterial infection? I'm somewhat of a hypochondriac when it comes to my fish so please tell me if I'm just being crazy! Thanks guys!

    New 55g!

    Thanks! It's just an addition. I'm about to start cycling, I just like to think ahead about what to put in there.
  20. I just can't stop! But when I saw the tank, stand, lights, and a filter for $80... Well I couldn't resist! My dog isn't quite sure how to feel about it. I bid on the sweetest little ranchu from DO last week but lost Now I'll have to figure out what to get for it! I'm thinking I'll try sand, which I've never done before. I love that black moon sand. Anyone have any advice about it? Don't know much about how sand does with filters. Is it better to have a canister filter or does it matter? Anyways! Just wanted to show off the tank since I'm so excited about it! Thanks for looking
  21. Wow, gorgeous photos! He almost looks like he's blushing in the second picture! Like "Oops! You caught me!" So cute!
