  1. I did a 20% change two days ago. I'll pick up some Prime tomorrow, and add the aquarium salt right away. And I'll try to find Kanaplex and the other thing
  2. I think the bubbles on her tail are from the big air bubble under the trap.
  3. I put Scarlet in the breeder trap, she was having a lot of trouble swimming and ends up floating almost on her side. The breeder trap is because she kept floating into the filter stream and hitting the glass. She is still breathing and swimming around a bit within the trap though. pH - 7.5 Ammonia - 0.3 Nitrate - 20 Nitrite - 0.8
  4. I changed out the water throughout the day, it even LOOKS cleaner than before, the way a fish tank should look. Parameters in the tank all match the tap water now But overnight Pablo got a red patch that matches Scarlets, only his red patch reaches into the fin
  5. * Ammonia Level(Tank) • 0.6ppm * Nitrite Level(Tank) • 0.8ppm * Nitrate level(Tank) • 20ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) • 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tap) • 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tap) • 0ppm * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) • 7.5 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) • 7.5 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? • Nutrafin Test Drops * Water temperature? • 70°F * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? • 30 gals, running for two months * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? • 70g Aquaclear Fluval Power Filter * How often do you change the water and how much? • 10% weekly, 30% yesterday, about to do another 30% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? • yesterday, 30%, water was tested today * How many fish in the tank and their size? • two fish, each 2 inches long * What kind of water additives or conditioners? • Stress Coat * What do you feed your fish and how often? • 5 Omega One small goldfish pellets in the morning and at night * Any new fish added to the tank? • no * Any medications added to the tank? •stress coat to help Pablo's fins * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? • Pablo tends to hide behind the driftwood I have in my tank, but has been coming out more lately. Scarlet acts fairly normal until she starts floating upside down, which she corrects within seconds I'll get some pictures and a video right away
  6. These are the numbers from today, no water changes since yesterday And I forgot to fill in the pH but it's 7.5
  7. I haven't been able to get a test kit, and I know that I should have gotten one a long time ago, but I'm picking one up later today, and I'll test the water immediately. Tank temperature is just under 70°F, it's a 30 gallon tank that has been running for two months. The filter is a 70 gallon hang on back Aquaclear filter. I change 10% of the water weekly and did a 30% water change yesterday after I noticed the fuzz on Pablo and the red patch on Scarlet. It's just the two of them in the tank, they're both about an inch and a half long, I haven't done a proper measurement yet. I used API stress coat for their water conditioner. They're fed 5 Tetra goldfish pellets twice a day. No new fish, though they're pretty new (December 20). Only medication added has been stress coat to help Pablo's frayed fins, which I assumed came from him being with large Black Moores in the pet store. Like I mentioned, Pablo has a small white fuzzy patch which I can't get seem to get a decent picture of. Pablo stays near the middle or bottom, while scarlet moves throughout the whole tank. Oh! And as for aeration in the tank I have the filter and a big air stone. Scarlet for the most part acts normal, other than occasionally floating upside down in one of the corners.
  8. So I'm brand new to Kokos and to goldfish keeping (just saying). Someone suggested I make a thread on here about my goldfish, both of them are sick. This one, Pablo, has a slight peach fuzz on him that's worrying me, as well as a thicker white fuzzy patch on his tail . Also behind his right gill plate there is an orange thread dangling from him with a few scales at the end of it. This is the other goldfish, Scarlet. She has bad swim bladder problems that I'm treating by fasting her for the next few days >.< as well as this red patch behind her fin Help please? What medications do I need to treat them?
