  1. I had my nose right on mine as well with one opened and I didn't smell a thing...I would get rid of them. I'm not sure the fish would get sick if they ate them but I would hate to take the chance.... It stinks (no pun intended ) that you have to get rid of them.
  2. I just gave mine a good whiff right from the freezer and I smell nothing, although they could have a different smell when defrosted but I have never noticed
  3. Mine don't smell like anything really..yours could be going bad. How long ago did you get them?
  4. Ok... If you feel that works for you.. if not, than we help you with the measurements:)
  5. If you have a scale I would measure it out. Api aquarium salt and something like Morton canning salt is different in grain size so using a measuring spoon is tricky in dosage I feel...What size tank do you have?
  6. Oh my goodness I'm so sorry this is happening to you. don't give up hope...
  7. I'm going to start the prazi at regular dose... Now question... The 3 babies I tookout of the 20 to put him in are in a tub right now. Do you think it's a good idea to put them in the 20 with him and treat all with the prazi since I was going to treat them anyway until this little guy came along and took their tank lol
  8. Ok I'm gonna start prazi... I'm guessing regular dose and keep the salt at the current.01%
  9. I was going to start him on Prazi but wasn't sure because of his bloody fins incase I had to medicate and the WC schedule on prazi and some meds like tetracycline are different. So I figu I would hold off on the prazi Yes I use baking soda and its stable at 8
  10. No raised scales. I checked today while he was in a bucket when I was doing the WC Yes I have prazi liquid
  11. Often now as I think I found his new name lol... This occurred today as yesterday he wasn't doing this
  12. Ok I'm having a hard time uploading a vid, but the erratic swimming is he will swim normal for a little bit then all of a sudden he will spaz out like twitching and swim right into whatever he is near. He took a good bump into the filter intake poor thing
  13. Anyone who gets this , your fishies are gonna wuuuv it. I got a big bag of it and my fish go cray cray over this stuff, even the babies. Awesome of KoKo to give it away as it can be pricey
  14. Swimming becoming more erratic trying to get a good video
  15. Awesome setup! You did an excellent job

Aqueon 30 (200gph) * How often do you change the water and how much? every other day. will be doing 50 or 100% depending on gunk factor in QT tank * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? today 100% * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 about an inch * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime and baking soda * What do you feed your fish and how often? 3 small meals throughout day. Pro gold, froze brine shrimp, NLS pellets * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? Morton's canning salt * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Salt at .01% since this past Sunday * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? blood streaked pec fins * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Occasional darting around So this baby Oranda I got on Sunday, and he has blood streaked fins. Previous owner said they were not like that on that Friday and that this is a new thing.Since with me he has been in a 20gal QT for 2 days with a salt concentration of .01% in hopes that the streaking would go away with just the salt and pristine water since he hasn't had that before... No visible change to his bloody fins in the past 48 hours since salt treatment. He eats fine and is swimming well with some occasional darting behavior. I didn't want to jump the gun so I figured I would observe for 48hrs. As I see no improvement and no signs of healing I don't want to lag on this either in case it is some internal infection and not just a bruise... Thanks everyone... My pics are horrible I know sorry my camera is beyond junk Left pec fin is worse than the right pic is from today pic from sunday
  17. Is the maintenance on these easy. I heard they are coming from more experienced people but how about to a semi-newbie. HOB is the only thing I've owed and maintenance on them is simple. I also heard the horror stories of crazy leaks and dreadful maintence. I would love to venture out into the canister world but......
  18. If you feel that 79 degrees is a bit warm for them, ebay and Amazon does sell aqurium fans they clip onto the tank top they are around $20 it can get the temp several degrees cooler. That's probably the least of your worries right now but just thought I would mention for what it's worth
  19. I have a weakness for Oranda's yours are jaw dropping!!!!
  20. It's so awesome seing everyone's oldies. Mine are still very young but growing up my dad kept goldfish that lived well past ten years. Back then there was no internet so all trial and error but one thing he did know was the importance of WC.. After seeing me with goldfish he's been itching to get another 100 gal and getting back into it
  21. That's ok Aubrey He's a cutie.He's eating a swimming fine and has the cutest round baby Oranda head . Not sure on a name yet but I'm sure by watching him I'll come up with one. He still got the blood streaking on his pec fins doing large WC today and back in the salt. I give him one more day if it's still there I'm calling in the big guns LOL
