  1. Yes I ordered Repashy and hakari saki fancy goldfish pellets. I also saw a post by KoKo about duckweed( I ordered this too) that could help with bladder problem, but he has been like this for a while some not sure. He did have swim bladder year or more ago, I treated him and he is better but still sometimes hangs at top. I will take picture of ammo test from tap and tank and post last this evening. Babysitting right now and watching baby kitten which I have to bottle feed! I think I am crazy😆
  2. I tested the tap water(we are on a well). PH 6.4. Ammo. .25 Hard to tell color not quite yellow on chart Nitrite 0. Nitrate 5.0 The tank runs PH. 7.4 to 7.6. Ammo. .25 Hard to tell color. Nitrite 0. Nitrate. 20. is this ok of is there something I should do
  3. Thank you so much - I will stop bugging ya😁and let you good to bed! I am! I will try the increased feeding and see how it goes. And the filter maintenance. Thank you again
  4. Ok thank you- or do you think I should go ahead and do the med also
  5. 😢😢oh no I have been starving him! No I have not been giving him near as much food as you say I should. I will start feeding him more and switch to pellets for both meals. Maybe he doesn’t need the med? Maybe I have just been under feeding?
  6. And are you talking about Metro Plex on Amazon?
  7. I know in the picture his fins look red but he has orange color on his fins, they have always been like that. So actually his fins color is his natural color except now some black is creeping in. I have treated him for red streaks but thank goodness he has healed from that. The Metro med you mention you think would be better than General cure? When you say complete water change- 100% or what? And then redoes the original 1st amount. The picture shows the food I have been using- I feed 1x day in am and it is about a pinch of food. I only use one type of food per day
  8. Thank you all for your replies- I have sent message to Artic mom and see what she thinks of the internal meds. Thank you all again
  9. Oh no Am I not feeding him enough? His belly is not pink it was just the reflection. But I had no idea he looked skinny! The red streaks were treated with Furan 2 in hospital tank and are now gone. Wouldn’t he Furan clear up any parasites if he had them? So not sure do you think it is color change and I should move him back in 20 gal tan,? He did have swim bladder a long time ago, but he still hangs out out top when not swimming. He does drive and swim all around the tank. How much should I feed him. ( I have had fish for many years but I can always learn something) Also as I state in about postI do have trouble reading ammonia, it doesn’t look real as yellow as card but not the same as .25 either.

  12. Help not sure if it is black ick or what. 20 gal tank ( have moved to 10 gal hospital tank) water change weekly, PH 7.6, Ammo 0-.25, NO2 0, NO3 10-20, Have started treating with prazipro, . I have had this fish for 5 years or more. He seem find other than color change, though he does dive to bottom and bump his head sometimes. He has alway been a medical disaster. Have treated swim bladder, red streak fins, wen surgery, over the years, and now this. I am not sure how to share photo
