  1. Thank you for asking. Pretty disastrously bad. 3 out of 6 fish died (and not the one with mouth fungus). He is being treated with NT anti ulcer in a separate tank and the other 2 are in the main tank with salt. All alive for now. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. Bad news unfortunately. This fish is still alive but his fins have now started to look frayed (however the mouth looks better). Two other fish died in the meantime. Tested the water and the nitrite had reached 0.5 ppm. It looks like the treatment has affected the bacteria in the filter (AGAIN). This fish is now in its own hospital tank, with 1% salt (will add 1% again tomorrow and the day after) and treated again with melafix. I've changed 90% of water in the main tank and my 3 remaining fish seem ok...for now.
  3. Hi shakako, Melafix is antibacterial and I've already started the treatment with it. Do you think I should try something else instead? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  4. Hi both and thank you for replying Please find more photos of the mouth and the set up. https://goo.gl/photos/bmbgHW3v76bsevy38 The filter is one of These The nitrate removing filter is Here I have now treated the tank with API Melafix and Pimafix so those are the bubbles you see in the photo. I've also added the UV lamp to the filter, to reduce the amount of bacteria and other nasties in the water column.
  5. HI all, I've recently got some goldfish that I keep in a 130 gallon outdoor tub. A week ago or so I had water quality problems due to using a nitrate removing filter (to reduce the nitrates coming out of my London tap water which are 30ppm) this caused a crash in PH which killed off some of my filter bacteria. My fish have been a little lethargic then and keeping close to the surface. they all have a very slight whitish coat on them. One however seems to have something near his mouth, can you help with what it may be and how I can treat it? https://youtu.be/wTXUK-KLJiY Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0.10 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 40 * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrate level(Tap) 30 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.4 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.4 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops?
