  1. Sorry for late reply, been at work all day. The red puffy spot is gone. Ya kind of strange all is there now is a very faint red area thats going away. The puffiness is gone. I have not did nothing new to the water. and YA i saw his fins like that also im not sure whats going on I thought it was fin rot but the other gold fish is doing just fine. No signs of any kind of sickness.

    Also here this is the 30gallon tests I still have a few more weeks before i do the water change.

    I am doing the tests just like the cards are telling me. even read the book, but i have been keeping fish for more than 15 years some i sold some died of age and some got sick. I just have not had a sick fish in some time now.

    [*]* Ammonia Level(Tank) inbetween 0 and .25 *on the test card* [*]* Nitrite Level(Tank) inbetween 0 and 0.25 *on the test card* [*]* Nitrate level(Tank)5.0 [*]* Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.4

    Other Required Info:

      [*]* Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? Freshwater master kit , drops [*]* Water temperature? 74/76 [*]* Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 30gallon, been running for 3 years now.

      [*]* What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Whisper one that goes up to 75gallon tanks. I do change the filters out when needed. When i do water change i wash the filters off but if they are still white I keep useing them.

      also I do a 50% change. and seeing what you all saying i'll up my changing times.

  2. I just have always never used tap water for my fish at all. some tims its yellow, some times its green, some times it smells, some times it tastes like metal. I have also at the start of haveing fish I did use tap water and i used all them types of stuff you put in the water to make it safe for fish. All my fish would die. I was told by a vet *when we had a fish vet* to switch to spring water. So ever sense we have been buying big jugs. Thats kind of why i only change water every other month. The two golf fish dont even make the tank dirty really. I checked on the filter in the 30gallon its the one that one that can go up to 75gallon tanks. :\..

    I can start doing more water changes.. Also Im not sure if the red area on the fish started days before... The other fish in the big tank is doing good so far.

  3. I use big jugs of spring water from the store. I do not use tab water. If i did it would kill all my fish.

    We dont have good tap water here. I have always bought the bigggg jugs of spring water from the store. This fish is a year old. His buddy is 3 years old. But I have had fish for a long time and have always used the jugged water.

    Do i need to test my spring water in the jugs?

    this is the first goldfish ever to have so many problems out of no where... Last time i had a problem was a big belly gold fish and it got SBD but i put him in the recovery tank and he was fine a week latter and never was this bad...

  4. Ok retested as of this morn, ALSO i did do a small water change last night cause was not sure what caused that thing on his neck.

      here is a pic, of what he just does.... he just floats thats it. He trys to swim but he just floats, He might of gave up. He is breathing and alive. But i feel like im letting him suffer... The water is not yellow... its the light doing it plus the tank it self is older so the glass has changed color. BUT still the tank is clean and works fine.


  5. I wont be able to get the peas till tomorrow.

    The regular tank him and his buddy live in is a 30gallon. I set up a 10gallon after I saw him starting to swim funny. It did not put him into the 10gallon till a week after setting it up. The lvls were all normal, PH was like 7.0, Ammonia was 0, Nitrite was 0, Nitrate was between 0-20 or so. Temp of the tank is like 74 or around that.

    Also here is a HUGE question, what would cause a strange growth type thing under his chin????? I just saw that today and its freaking me out!!! I took pics of this.... Im going to do a retest in the morning but I dont see how the water would of just went crazy when I tested it two days ago.

    also I only had him out of the water no more than 10 sec. I did a fast 3 pic click than back to the water.




  6. My gold has SBD and well all states of the tanks are normal, she has been took out and put into another tank till she is better. She floats and swims upside down and side ways and can't go down very good. any way I have treid not feeding for 3 days. Still no difference. Well going to start with peas but I see I do not have any right now, Can I use soybeans? I have frozen ones and can cook them..

  7. I have one of them Brine Shrimp hatchery things you get from a nnnn or mmm. Well any way i used up all them premade packs and now just buying the big tubes of eggs and a big thing of aquarium salt, not table salt not sea salt. Ok any way HOW much salt and eggs do i need to mix into the hatchery??? Its just the small black box with the little clear tube on top.

    Can you tell me how much to put in or maybe how many grams of salt to add to the box of water to how much eggs? Not sure how you do it but i got a gram scale. Not sure if you just put a tablespoon or something I have no clue on that.

  8. Ok i have like 6 platy's *5 reds, 1 sun glow*. Well when i bought i did not know male from female so i was not worried, but i have noticed the males and females cause there breeding and all im not worried on it or any thing i think its kinda cool to see. Well 3 out of them were males and i have 2 females one red and the sun glow. BUT the males are only after the red female they ignore the sun glow female. Do they need to be the same type of platy to breed?

  9. Ok i know i dont just get pets without learning alot on them first, but this fish was going to get flushed away if i did not take it. I work at a pet shop and the manager got a fish in from some guy today and well the manager did not want it so he was going to flush it. So i said i would take it home.

    BUT i have no idea what it is and what it eats.. i know it will need a big tank, but i put it in a small tank to get pics of it.




  10. Ok well i got this female out of a feeder tank at the pet shop she is a full grown guppy. She is fat and thats the reason i got her i thought she was fat with fry. Well i am right she does have fry cause i found 1 little baby in the small tank i have her in. BUT heres the problem only 1 baby and she has this small blood spot on her side of her belly, i put a little med in the water to keep it ok. she is still very fat so i know she still has fry in her. but is that normal for 1 fry to come out and thats it?

  11. I work at the pet shop and well we got some feeder guppies in the other day and i saw this fish in there that is NOT a guppy. I wanted it and bought it for the price of the feeder guppies so ya cheep lol. well i have no clue what kind it is, its small under a inch. It is yellow, with a black dot on the middle of him. I tried feeding some flack foods but he wont really eat much of that he will munch on it than spit it out.

    sorry burry pics and can't really see him good



  12. yep the salt did help i soaked him for 15 mins than took him out and put him in another tank with air flow and a heater to turn the heat up to 84F and putting "betta fix" stuff in the water for his problem thats on his back. well the bloating went down but his scals are still sticking out some. HE ate today for the first time in a week.

  13. Well dont know if any one remembers me but i aksed a few weeks back about a sick betta with a hole on top of him forming with white stuff, well the hole was healing very good it was almost fully gone, but now he has a new problem he got Dropsy yep.. Im going to try the salt and try to save him... I know i might lose him i dont want to but hes a real fighter so im going to try.

    wish me lots of luck.

  14. she said she had him for a week, she bought him for a buck at a pet shop like in another city from me. heres a pic of him


    well i want to put him in my 55 gallon tank with two 3inch kois. Will that be ok? or will some one eat each other or something? i will put hides in there.

  15. Ok friend dumped a pet crawdad over at my house. She had NO idea how to take care of it and put it in a tank with some small fish. well yes the crawdad ate the fish and now its at my house... I never had a carwdad and she wont take it back so now im stuck with it. HOW do you take care of one? i know they will eat small fish and large fish might eat it. I know not to have other carwdads in with him *i dont have any others*

    ok well i know they eat shrimp pellets and stuff like that. my question is what else do i need to know?
