  1. I have had my boy Pong in a quarantine tank for over 2+ months now. Originally he began with little tumors on his tail 2 and a half years ago when he was young. I never knew what they were but they would pop off and he would heal, then they would come back again. As he got older they became more aggressive and his health declined with it. Pong is a pearl scale so it was hard to tell if his body was swollen or it was his natural body. I noticed his scales are now filling with fluids and will pop every few days. Sometimes he has 3-4 scales full of fluids at a time. He was swimming okay but now he is upside down half the day and in a corner. His tail is pretty much shredded at this point. I know this all sounds so awful and I know I should have put him down a long time ago but I love him so much. Is there anything I can possibly try, any last measure to help save pong? He still have a good appetite.
  2. Gizmo is a 2 year old blackmoor and she has been suffering from a bad case of popeye for almost three weeks, as well as a swim bladder issue. Both appeared around the same time. She is in a 55 gallon tank with her brothers, pearl scale and an oranda. The water has always been pristine and I spend a lot of time taking care of them. Gizmo has been in isolation for two weeks, with a round of erythromycin for five days, it did nothing. I then used Tetracycline for the last six days, and I thought it was clearing up but I just found her laying on her side and breathing heavy at the bottom. I got her in the big tank thinking she needed oxygen and she is swimming okay but her eye is huge, and she keeps returning to floating on her back at the bottom. I am so desperate for some advice. Thank you .
