  1. I got him out of the tank for closer pics.. give me a few min to upload
  2. Thanks!!.. I think someone is about to tell me how irresponsible GF keeper I am..
  3. Not talking about the white pimple.. he just got that a few hours ago & I assume is wen growth related.. The black spot/hole you can barely see in the pictures is actually darker and deeper of what it shows here
  4. Question(s).. Im planning to do what you guys have told me.. (getting a bigger tank if Im planning to get more goldfish) I already bought a Fluvial 306 and a Eshopps wd-75cs from a closing store so now Im looking for a (decent) used 75-90G to do a fishless cycle in it.. However... The people from the store where I got my fish (red cap & red/black) honored the warranty and offered me another fish free of charge.. So.. .. since I didn't want the (1) fish to stay there longer to get sick or die.. I had to bring him home!! FYI.. All equipment/tank got bleached and/or boiled prior to reuse I have him in QT now with salt & prazi but he's showing something black in his wen (HITH perhaps) that I haven't seen in any other picture at kokos.. I don't want to keep hurting animals so if your suggestion is to (try to) take him back to store until cycled, that I'll do
  5. Hopefully these pictures work.. Im at the third day of roud 4 of Prazi.. (two rounds in the main tank w/ salt, two rounds in the QT w/ antibiotics) Im at the 6th time adding Metro & Kana (today is the 11th day w/ meds in the tank)
  6. Hi!.. Calico is now swimming more and looking for food at times.. (but he's still sitting for hours) I noticed the right part of his internals are (either growing) or swollen.. Please tell me that this is not another infection we have to treat..
  7. I did when he was in the main tank.. I'll try them again tomorrow..
  8. Hello!.. Tomorrow will be day 7 of the calico being in the QT tank.. Im reading above and you're saying to keep the kana for 12 days but the package says "up to a maximum of 3 doses".. I did first dose on Friday, second on Sunday and third yesterday... What do I do.. Do I continue with Kana for another 5 days??? Jared has contacted Seachem, the company that makes Kanamycin, and they said it is safe to do 2 rounds if needed. He is still not back to "normal" (bottom sitting, etc). I would do that second round if he was my fish. Calico eats (or try to) whatever you put in front of him, he just takes forever to chew it.. What are you feeding him? Poops are food-color but long.. He doesn't swim much, it stays "sitting" in a certain spot most of the time Now.. in regards Prazi.. Monday night was the end of "second dose".. so yesterday, today & tomorrow are supposed to be "no prazi days".. however, I can only do 50% WC so it is obvious that some prazi is going to stay in the tank.. Is that harmful ??? That's fine . . . Im planning to do another 50%WC tomorrow morning with metro only (no prazi or kana) so If im doing something wrong or if I need to continue with Kana please let me know.. THANKS!! Im feeding him pellets & peas.. He has hard time w peas & doesnt seem "thrilled" by the omega pellets.. however, he likes the "baby pellets" from hikari

  10. Red/black (Buddy) didn't make it.. I only have the calico now.. hopefully he comes back.. On the good side.. He decided to eat this evening a few pellets.. But one thing I noticed is that all the hospital tank is super slimy Is this normal with prazi, kana & metro being there ??? Today (Sunday) was the third day of treatment.. I did 50% wc after I found Buddy dead & redose proportionally
  11. One last question .. what's the ratio for water-bleach when disinfecting aquarium stuff ?
  12. Thanks.. you guys are great! Im not a quitter, I will NOT quit.. (hopefully my wallet won't quit either) I saw the "picture of the month" (with a bunch of different GF) at main page & i thought it was a beautiful scene so i want that.. Back to my tank(s).. i have the calico & red/black on the QT 10g tank.. i redosed prazi, metro & kana today & turned off filter. i cannot do 100% WC daily but I can do 50%.. besides, the QT tank hasnt show any ammonia the last couple of days so i guess im not hurting them by not doing 100% wc.. Im planning to get the 75G used.. could that be dangerous or bleach will do it??

  14. In regards to desinfect the main tank (which is 20G).. I have black sand.. should I boil it ???, Is it going to lose some of it's color??? In my filter (penguin 350) I have Eheim SubstratePro, blue pads (no cartridges), Seachem Purigen & the bio-wheel that comes w the Penguins filters.. Am I bleaching all that also ???, If so, am I going to kill all good bacteria as well ??? Thanks!
  15. As expected.. he has died..I found him floating at the top this morning.. I just can't explain how can he be gone in less than 10hrs when looking just fine yesterday morning.. I mean, he was the strongest one out of the three and he's dead!!.. What can I expect from the other two!?.. _______________________________________________________________________________ I'm extremely discouraged thinking that this whole thing was a bad idea.. I mean.. my dining room looks like a mad house with tanks, hoses, filters, pumps, meds, food, etc.. Now I have two sick fishes barely moving and to make things worse I just read an article that says to remove carbon cartriges when medicating.. (Duh! the cartridge on the QT tank has carbon).. So I guess I have to start all over again medicating prazi + metro & Kana, right??? The good thing is that the QT tank has been without ammonia for the last two days (well, fish aren't eating anything).. Either way Im doing a 50% WC right (which is the maximum I can do without missing more work time) __________________________________________________________________________________ I wonder if I should get a full grown goldfish from a reputable source (such as dandy orandas, goldfishnet or raingarden) instead of the ones they sell locally.. ??? _____________________________________________________________________________ Question(s).. What do I do to the main tank where the red cap died ??.. . Does it have to be desinfected somehow or just (several) water changes will make the tank safe for whoever comes in ???
  16. I really don't know what to say anymore.. :no: Mardo was perfectly fine this morning.. Now he looks gone.. (No ammonia or nitrates) If you guys think this is curable please let me know asap..
  17. Alright.. It seems that this is the beginning of the end for my Buddy.. :( I setted up the QT tank this morning with prazi + kana + metro (no salt) and this is how he looks this evening He's NOT swimming.. just being pushed around by the current & getting stuck at the filter intake If you guys think that I should do something different to save him/her please let me know asap.. Ammonia = 0.0
  18. Hello again.. Wondering if you decided what am I doing tomorrow morning (day 8)?? Is the calico & red/black still going to the QT tank ??.. if so, do they need filtration or aeration ??? (I've never done QT so I don't know) If you decide to move the calico & red/black to the QT tank.. Is the red cap continuing w/ Prazi + 0.1% salt for another two rounds ??? Please let me know.. I need to get everything you need me to have ready for tomorrow morning
  19. Red cap has been sitting since day 2.. first day both red cap & calico were at top of tank (I guess shocked because introduced to a tank with 0.3% salt) Red cap just moves when he notice I drop food.. he goes back to "sitting" after a few "bites" By the way.. they do swim a little more when im not watching and/or when i turn off lights I appreciate all the help you guys have been giving me so please ask me anything. Same as you, i rather not to medicate them if not needed..
  20. Yes & no.. same source but the red/black came first.. Even though tank wasn't cycle he was doing great before the other two came in. One thing i noticed when i bought the calico is that other fish were picking on him (or at least its what it seemed like) I felt sorry for him so i brought him home
