  1. Thorsten has a little bubble/blister at the front of her right eye and I'm worried it's going to turn to popeye/dropsy/horrible bad stuff. She's really clumsy and runs into her filter tubes all of the time so it could be an injury too. I'm just worried and want to know what you guys think. She's the only fish in the tank. It's barebottom with 1 big terracotta pot as the only decoration. She's about 4 years old and has never had any sort of serious illness. The best way to see the bubble is with movement so I took a video. What do you guys think? Youtube video Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0-.25(from the chloramines I assume) * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 5ish * Ammonia Level(Tap) .25 * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrate level(Tap) 0-5 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.5 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops?

This morning 5% poop vacuum, yesterday 50%, day before 10%, day before that 10% * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 about 4-5 inches * What kind of water additives or conditioners? prime * What do you feed your fish and how often? hikari lionhead small amount twice a day and peas * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? no * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. occasional salt but none currently * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? eye bubble * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? acting normal
  2. Thanks for all the kind words They will definitely be getting lots of bloodworms because I have a bunch that I bought for my frogs, but were too big for them to eat. They'll also be dining on lots of yummy veggies once they get into their big tank. Right now I'm feeding them sparingly to keep the water quality good in their little quarantine tank. The one that I went back for is the little golden guy that has the more sloped back(pics 2 & 3). It was really hard to not just take all 20 or so that they had home, but that would have definitely been biting off more than I could chew.
  3. I haven't had goldfish for a couple of years, but I started to get all wishy washy and reminiscent about them the other day. I decided that I would start looking around, and if any cuties struck my fancy, I'd get them. Well the very next day I took a peek at the tanks at one of the big box stores, and they had a bunch of adorable little lionheads which are my absolute favorite fancies! It's literally been about 5 years since I've even seen any for sale locally so I took this as a sign and got 3 of them. There was one left that I couldn't get off my mind so I went back for him, and now I have 4 new little lionheads! They're in a cycled 10 gallon right now for salt + prazi and they will be moving into my 46 gallon when their quarantine is up. :newfish :newfish
