  1. I moved all 4 fish from Goldfishnet to the 40G earlier.. I added the 456 grams of salt to be at .3% but (unfortunately) I added double dose of prazi.. They definitely didn't like it.. Now all 4 are bottom sitting breathing heavy. I saw "tele #2" flashing & yawning (flukes) & none of them wanted to eat the metro flakes Now.. Should I wait for this prazi round to finish then do a 100%wc and add the metro/kana ??? (no prazi obviously) or, Should I add the metro/kana to what's there now ??? or, Should I do a 100%WC tomorrow morning and add metro/kana ??? (no prazi) Im sorry.. I did all this while you were away today.. I hope Im not weaken their immune system with today's prazi and they get worse because something internal..
  2. Sorry for the delay.. Here's the info you requested Soni (solid gold) arrived on May 20.. First seven days I only did regular WC's, no salt or prazi He is in a 10G tank alone and today is the last day of his third round of prazi and 0.1% salt He got 6 days of Metro flake food (as per package instructions) He became lethargic after WC at the beginning of his 3rd round of prazi (last Thursday) I tried to contact the breeder (but I haven't get an answer).. some other breeder suggested (after seeing the video) to raise the temp to 90 degrees, add metro powder and feed metro flakes for another 4 days.. I fed him last night some metro flakes (which he spitted out) but today (mistakenly) I fed him some gel food and he "ran to it" Tele#1 is the one that arrived (on June 3) with an unlcer and I moved to a 10G plastic container on June 7 and started his first round of prazi, .3% salt & Metro food for 6 days.. He looked super good a day after starting treatment but on June 12 he started to act lethargic and spitting the Metro flakes out Today I fed him some gel food and he ate it good.. he's more active than yesterday but just spending all time at the top of the tank Tele #2 has been in the same 20G tank (june 3) with another 2 ranchus.. No prazi added yet, just salt at 3% since Jun 8 He started acting lethargic last Thursday (june 11) after a WC and today his breathing is twice as fast as the video shows.. The "roomate" red/white ranchu seems very good (eating and moving all day) but the little black one acts lethargic most of the day.. As I said earlier.. I have the 40G ready to move whomever.. however, I'll prefer to keep Soni by himself (in his 10G) since he came from a different source Either way I'll follow your lead
  3. He's back to the green container.. doesn't move much He's eating a few flakes at the time then goes back to motionless.. I'll keep feeding for 14 days
  4. It is 3am and I cant sleep thinking about this #@#! fish.. He's breathing now twice as fast as what you see in the video.. Hopefully he makes it to the morning
  5. Did you start a thread? I would like to subscribe to it if you did. It is my feeling that these fish are just more sensitive, and with the stress of moving, being shipped, and adjusting to new water and a new tank with parameter fluctuations (at least in mine) it is just too stressful. At least the scales on my male are now perfectly flat, so I feel pretty good about that. Once he is all better and I am done doing Prazi on them, I am probably just going to have to get used to doing a WC on their tank every 3-4 days to ensure that they have the best conditions possible. No thread yet.. I feel so embarrassed having SO MANY sick fish that I just "pm" Jared.. I sent the video to someone else (knowledgeable breeder) and they say that Soni caught something really bad.. (most likely for cross contamination from Goldfishnet fish).. They're suggesting to raise the temp to 90 which I never have so I really don't know what to do!? I emailed Jennifer (solid gold) but she hasn't answer either..
  6. I will fill up the form later tonight.. As some of you know, I have received 4 fish in the mail last week.. I moved an injured one to a 10G plastic container to treat with metro food, salt (at .3%) & prazi The rest of them are in my 20G QT.. This fish below (part of the 3 in the 20G) has been bottom sitting for the last day and a half and now is breathing super heavy (faster that the video) and spitting out food.. Im planning to start tomorrow their first dose of prazi but I would like to know if I should do (or dont do) something else.. Im planning to feed Metro food, do double dose of prazi & salt at .3% Any help will be greatly appreciated!
  7. Shoot man!.. non of the mods are available.. I thought about to start a dose of metro powder but I don't know...
  8. What an idiot! (Me) I released Rocky out of his green container to say "hi" to his friends.. After a few minutes away from the tank, I looked for him and couldn't find him.. I freaked out so I turned off the filters and I saw his eyes by the FX6 intake.. Poor baby.. his tail is somehow shredded and now back in his container he's not moving.. Im so sorry Rocky..
  9. I think Soni is victim of cross contamination. His QT tank is right next to the other Teles tank so water/bubbles can easily splash between tanks. Sorry im bringing this into your thread.. i just wanted to see if your goldies have experienced "this behavior" Im gonna start my own
  10. How is your tele doing today Josie ?? Mine (solid gold) is been acting a little odd the last couple of days.. not moving much He's been fine (super active) the last three weeks but now (at his third round of prazi) he's bottom sitting
  11. Oh no.. am I back to step one..?? Last night it was the fourth day of prazi (round 1) so I did a 100% WC this morning.. He showed no interest in food from 12pm on and now it has (what I think) heavy breathing.. I tried to force-feed him earlier and he spitted out What should I do ??
  12. I really thought I lost him.. He was already on his side motionless and the body was already curved. I've personally never seen a fish coming back from that sign.. Specially with a guy like this.. only 1.5 inch and 4 grams of weight.. Wow!! I guess the metro med leached out of the food and that's how he started moving.. Thanks again!!
  13. Thank you as well for this life saving video!!
  14. I take off my hat to you Jared for your prompt suggestions and to the breeder that recommended that food!! I know Rocky isn't in the best shape yet but I know he will get better..
  15. I did as told but he's not interested in food.. I know I'm losing him.. Is there such a thing as a Metro bath..? meaning a high dose in (that) small container for certain amount of minutes (to try) for him to absorb some of the meds
  16. Metro food!.. I guess he realized that it was gonna be (either) "that" or that..!
  17. I'm going to do that when I get home .. hopefully he is still with us I have a bad feeling.. earlier when I went home to check on him he was already laying on his side and breathing was sporadically
  18. Hang in there little tele.. Help is on the way! I know you can Josie!!.. I've bring them back to normal from dropsy before so I know you can do it!! Best wishes and healing vibes!!
  19. I haven't start "that thread" about my Goldfishnet experience yet.. so I'll pm you when back from work
  20. Now.. If (obviously) Rocky has something in him.. Is the "whole" 125G tank in jeopardy ??
  21. What do you all think??... Much better, right??
  22. I saw some "sympathy" from Manu.. I first I thought that the oranda was getting sick as well but as soon as I made some movement in the water, the oranda left Rocky and ran over to me hoping for food.. These two came from the same LFS at the same time (They were QT together)
  23. I really cannot handle any other "separation".. I'm literally driving myself crazy with the maintenance of 3 QT tanks and one main 125G I have the other other (adult) tele with salt (.3%), prazi liquid (double dose) & Metro flake food I have another butterfly from Jenny (Solid Gold) by itself in a 10G tank.. However, Jenny's fish looks super healthy so I don't want to risk to bring something to him from Rocky Rocky is getting skinnier.. I have been "netting" him (to separate) from the others and see if he eats.. He gets a couple of pellets but as soon as the other fish smell the food they run to the net (where Rocky is) so he spits everything out (not enough time to slow-comfortably chew) LisaC... Rocky passed a month of QT (two months ago) with salt & prazi Taryl... Besides "hidding" in the plants.. there's not hiding place for the fish I don't have any decor or substrate besides a couple of plants
