  1. Wow okay! Thank you so much I will do all this a report back to you.
  2. He's still in the small tank and I used Prazipro
  3. I raised the salt concentration to 0.1% yesterday and I got the prazi today. I dosed the tank according to the instructions on the bottle. Should I still raise the salt level in the tank? Also, the top of his tail fin is fraying [emoji30] and I may be paranoid but his mouth looks puffy? He was perfectly healthy before now..
  4. Oh! I didn't think of that I just didn't want to transfer over any hitchhiking parasites
  5. I put 1 tablespoon of salt in the 5.5 gal tank. I am setting up a 55 gal tank but I didn't want to move Fred until he was better. I will go look for some prazi. I have pima in case it's fungal but I'll hold off. Thank you for the help!

  7. Hi Everyone, I'm relatively new to keeping goldfish and I need help diagnosing Fred! I have been treating for Ick for the last few days but his spots have not changed at all. I have had mollies in the past get Ick and their white spots showed signs of treatment by the next day. Do goldfish take longer because they are much larger? I would appreciate any advice or suggestions. Thank you!
