  1. Love alternative! And if by tragically hip you mean one hit wonders, love that too [emoji3] although there is no way I could avoid dancing when those are involved! Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

  3. Lately I'm stuck on a great 90's music playlist on Spotify, but it all depends on the mood. Husband came home 2 months ago to me singing along with 70's disco and arm deep in the aquarium

  6. Thank you I'll look around for it. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  7. I really appreciate the responses!No, other than the salt I've not used anything. They have never shown any signs of illness until this. Do you have any idea what could be causing the kinks? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  8. Thank you! It's been frustrating. The pictures really don't show how White the spots are, and his tail is tail is wrinkled looking. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  9. I noticed my fan tail(Sunny) had 3 little white spots on his tail after a water change 2 weeks ago. Did a ton of research, and decided it was probably ich. Read up on treating with heat and salt. Wanted to be sure so I waited to see if it spread a little. It didn't for almost a week. Him and his two tank mates were acting fine, eating, swimming, no rubbing on anything and all that. The other two never showed any signs, but I did see that Sunny's tail had a few more small spots on it. So I decided to take action before it got out of hand. Yesterday I did another 50% water change(My usual day is Saturday) and started slowly raising the water temp, and added extra aeration. Added 1tsp per gallon aquarium salt, and again 12 hrs later. (Everything I read said raise it .1% every 12hrs till .3) Got the temp from 72°f to 80°f over that 12hr period as well. Woke up this morning and Sunny's spots are all gone! I know I would traditionally add salt 1 more time and get heat to at least 84°f and keep it there a week. But now I'm confused. Everything says it will get worse before better, but he already looks like new. Should I continue as planned just in case, or was it something different altogether? TANK INFO: 55 gal w/ 10 gallons in sump Safe and Prime conditioner Bare bottom Omega one sinking pellets, peas, broccoli, spinach 1 3in fan tail 1 2 1/2 in Blackmoore 1 2 1/2 in common (I know, I know she is the reason I added a sump, and I am OCD about testing and water changes. Daughter went to fair with friends and brought her back) Water parameters are checked twice a week using API master test liquid Before WC: 0 ammonia 0 nitrite 5-10 nitrates Mid week 0 ammonia 0 nitrite 0-5 *I posted this in another Goldfish forum 2-3 weeks ago and never got a response. This week I noticed he has been bottom sitting and the spots are back, but on the other side. Eats fine, other tank mates are fine. I completely confused. I got the heat to 84 and left the salt at .2 for the week. Figured I'd rather be safe than sorry. Please help? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
