  1. Thank you very much Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  2. Thank you, my tank looks bare without her, hard to get used it Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  3. Thank you very much, I will definitely get another redcap there a beautiful fish. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  4. Helen Ive felt her belly and its really soft and quite red and sore aswell with scales missing Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2 ? dave, in that case, she might have been egg impacted. she might have not been able to release the eggs and had some bacteria form. a soft belly is typical of?three things, 1. a female binding eggs. 2. bacteria infection, 3. organ failure. the missing scales are a clue that she may have been chased around by the males. sometimes, all the pushing around doesn't help a female to release her eggs. the redness is an indication of bacteria.? some fish lose scales from being heavily affected by bacteria. but, to get to that point, they are normally heavily pineconed. ? I don't believe she was pineconed from the media you provided. ? I'm sorry I only ever saw my lionhead oranda pushing her so il keep an eye on him so he doesn't pester my ryukin and baby red and black oranda, its a shame that my oranda died just as I have made plans to buy a 600 litre tank, she was big I dont think the pictures or videos do her justice, easily the size of my hand, with a huge tail fin, thank you all very much for all your help especially Helen, and I will definitely come here first with any other problems if they come up Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2

  6. Thanks mr B, least iv learnt a little from this. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  7. My girlfriend said my oranda has definitely died, when I get back for work I'll feel its belly like you said, its a shame he or she was my favourite fish and my oldest, and probably the main reason I got into fish keeping, I'll keep you posted. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  8. No she didn't take anything I tired to feed her, wish I caught the symptoms sooner, thank you for all your help though helen, you've beeb great, do you recommend a large water change tonight? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  9. Helen, my girlfriend just called to tell me that the oranda has just died I told her to really make sure and she said he was upside down in the corner and not breathing at all, I told her to put him or her in a large bowl with water from the tank in just incase, untill I get home Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  10. Ok helen, ive got some wide perspex that il try to segregate him or her to feed the peas, and I can get the Epsom Salt from the supermarket on my way home from work Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  11. Yeah join its very easy to upload videos and pictures, even I can do it haha, and if you hash tag things ie #fancygoldfish you'll see everyone else's fancy goldfish that have hash tagged it. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  12. Hi helen, I have one ryukin, one black moore, one lion head oranda, and one very small red and black oranda which is still a baby, but if any fish would be the harasser is would be the lion head oranda ive seen him push the sick oranda and my ryukin before my oranda became sick, I think I have a video that I put on instagram, do you have instagram? I have a few videos on there, my user name is davyboyson if you do and my picture is of me welding, if not il try send that video to you tonight, also il try get the individual videos that you would like, iv always thought maybe my oranda was female but i read that its hard to tell unless they become pregnant, I only assumed it was a he because he was the biggest haha, il give that link you've given me a good look, but iv never really handled my fishes by hand and worried il damage them, but I will try, thank you again for all your help, and being so understanding about my lack of technology skill haha Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk 2
  13. Thanks mr b, I think ive uploaded a few videos if helen goes on my YouTube name she'll hopefully see them, but there taken with my phone so the videos are quite small but hopefully she can make them out haha, im buying a 600 litre tank soon and would love to see my oranda in there.
