I am answering the questions so that hopefully someone can help me with my goldfish. A new problem has surfaced, the fantail has a few black spots on his gill and body. I read that it was a result of the skin healing but, I am not sure. Here it goes;
Ammonia in tank- 0.25 did go to 0.50 did a water change went down.
Using an API drop freshwater test kit.
Water Temp. 68-70
Fluval HOB 50-70 filter
Tank is 37 gallons
Water change yesterday 25% cleaned gravel as well
3 fish 2-orandas about 3-4 inches long and 1-fantail 3 inches long.
Prime for ammonia, having problems cycling, ammonia goes up but not nitrate or nitrite. I use stress coat and also just API water conditioner.
Sera (?) pellets which I soften first, peas 2-3 x a week. tetrafin flakes (I found out that it is not so good a food) I feed them now only 1x a day
Medications in tank now is cupramine which I have tested every few days it is at 0.3% now. There is some antibiotic in there erythromycin for the septicemia which looks a bit better on two of the fish.
One of the orandas looks much better the other oranda still looks ill, frayed fins, maybe a little ick. Two are swimming around fine, one is a bit slower.
