  1. Thank you shakaho.. but Im not looking for a treatment.. just wonder if someone knows what this could be just by it's looks
  2. Hello everyone, Just wondering if someone knows what this lump on the side could be?? It appeared after she spawned and grew for a few days last night something white came out of there and now is not as big Thanks for the feedback
  3. Hello everyone.. I haven't been here in several months so I don't know if this has been discussed already I went to buy some worms earlier and came across Ruby Reef Hydroplex http://www.rubyreef.net/ The store owner says that Hydroplex is the best thing out there for new arrivals, avoiding the long QT process... Has anyone use this product ?? I purchased some for this weekend purchase but I thought of asking here first before using it Thank y'all
  4. Ya.. she was DO.. same shipment as yours She was perfectly fine during QT and the first 3 weeks in main.. I don't know if they're just sensitive to higher nitrates or to the hard water or just some bug in the actual tank is killing the fish Im having a really hard time to keep the ones from China.. the ones from Thailand just love it.. I guess it makes sense why LS's don't sell nice GF.. main product in town are cichlids..
  5. I guess she didn't like to be alone.. She has passed during the night Thank you all for your help
  6. I just did a small water change, moved the tancho to the hospital and added epsom.. I've seen this fish daily the last couple of months so I can tell that the wen is different.. it is not as full/rich than a week ago She has already some pinecone at the bottom of belly and the eyes do stick out I lost another fish to similar symptoms but Im willing to try anything you guys suggest to save her.. Thank you!!
  7. Thank you both.. I will do another small WC this evening (and daily, when possible) to keep nitrates at a low level I'll also move the fish to a hospital tonight and add the epsom I do believe the eyes protrude but will take a picture later to confirm.. Her belly looks bigger today that before
  8. Don't know if is relevant but this is this is the main 125G a couple of weeks ago.. As you can see the Lionhead was super active (normal) then

  10. Hello again, She has been in the main tank for approximately one month However she gets spooked easily so I think she got injured (hitting something) over a week ago.. and now she has a "bloody wound/scales" 3 days ago she started to isolate herself (minimum eating), some extra slime coat hanging from wen, heavier breathing and the pupils look smaller than usual Please let me know if I need to move her to a hospital tank and/or what medication should be given I'll do the questionnaire (if needed) in a couple of hours Thank you all..
  11. Yes you can hun.... Can you show me the main tank again hun Here's the main
  12. Thank you all.. I really thought she/he was out of danger.. really don't know what happened
  13. Just to thank you Taryl and the rest of the team for all your help.. I don't know what the heck happened but this morning the fish was dead.. It was super fine (active/eating) a few days ago but then (coincidentally) stared to get lethargic (2 days ago) and producing a lot of ammonia after I started to use some (25-50%) of the main tank water for water changes.. It actually spitted out the food last night.. I don't want to believe that the main tank water (bugs) killed her but who knows.. _____________________________________________________ Koko.. if you see this.. I did two rounds of (10 drops) 500ppm Silver 5-6 weeks ago.. water in main has been clearer than ever after those silver rounds and all 6 fish are super active However.. if coincidentally something from main tank killed the bronze ranchu in QT (from this thread) is it "ok" if we do another "silver round" in main .. or is not relevant ??? Thanks!!
  14. Thank you Taryl.. Here's my video update of the anal fin..
  15. That's our best advice at this point. The good news is even if the fin entirely erodes if that is the worst of it you're still looking at w functional, happy animal. It's the internal problems I'm most concerned about. Thank you!!.. I will do a salt dip tomorrow.. However.. whats the appropriate ratio (water:salt) and the time of the dip ?? (never done one so) Also.. Today is the last day of the Oxytetracycline flakes.. How do you want me to proceed afterwards ??? The fish is SUPER active all day.. Scales are NOT 100% flat but not pineconed either.. The fish looks somehow pineconed in the (top) videos I took last night but it is not in real life.. I think because it's scales have different colors it creates an optical illusion but I might be wrong Please advise
  16. Wow!!.. It is AWESOME!!.. How often you do WC???
  17. Well.. 10 days have passed and the anal fin is literally disappearing I don't know what to do to make it better or grow back!!.. I know you're busy.. but please let me know what do you suggest
  18. Not trying to bump the thread to the top but I think the anal fin looks worse Please advise
  19. I prefer to do what you guys suggest.. Im not sure if (0.3%) salt for over 30 days is bad on a fish If it's not gonna hurt and it might help with the fin issue, I'll leave it.. you're the boss The fin issues are the same.. anal still red (bloody) and now a caudal one has split and have some white in it.. (see full video please)
  20. Hello.. Just to let you know that Im using peroxide daily to clean the fins instead of meth blue (hope is ok) Also.. Im in the beginning of the Oxy flakes however.. I just remember that the fish has been in 0.3% salt for over 25 days (combined, while in QT) .. Is it ok to keep it in salt for another 9 days ??? Thanks!!
  21. Ok.. I did that and I saw little blood on the Q-tip.. (just FYI) let me know if I should do that more than once.. _____________________________________________________ Monday will be the end of the 2 week of Metro flakes course.. Can you tell me what am I doing afterwards.. ??? Also.. Do you know if this flakes (Angels Plus) are actual food with medication in it or just medication with fillers ??? You already know we are feeding this fish DOUBLE of the time recommended per manufacturer so If NOT food in it Im just concerned of having the fish in-taking nothing but meds for a month (2 week metro + 2 week Oxytetracycline) Thanks !!
  22. Yes.. that is a hole in the anal fin It is red on the edges with some off-white I just carefully look and it does have another (very) little hole in one of the pelvics and the other pelvic seems to miss a small piece (kinda chewed off)
  23. Tancho was moved to main a couple of days ago and so far is doing good.. But.. Im doing a WC in the bronze's QT tank and I noticed this.. ARE WE FINROT ?? If so, what should I do ?
