Hello fellow fish lovers, I am writing you all today because I've had enough of the horrible treatment fish receive as pets. I am starting a fish advocacy front to address the misconceptions about fish keeping that lead to millions of deaths of pet fish. I'm hoping to get people interested in joining in on this. I want to change how the world sees fish. We've all seen the videos on YouTube that appall all of us. This kind of abuse it what arises because the general population does not have respect for fish as a species. They deserve rights, just like cats, dogs, and other pets. I am looking for anyone who wants to take part in changing the world! Web developers, writers, photographers, fish gurus, and just general fish lovers! Please let me know if you're interested. I'm in the process of building a website currently. Send me a message, reply to this topic or send me an e-mail at email@example.com Thanks guys!!

The pet store guy recommended a protozoan killer called "Aquari-Sol". My entire tank died, and he recommended I use a few drops on the other tank, just to prevent another outbreak. I did for about the next 2 weeks. I haven't used it again in that tank in about a year (the outbreak happened a few weeks after the tanks was set up) * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? There are red spots on the fish that look like blood. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Behavior appears to be normal. About a week ago, I placed two new fish in my tank. About 3 days ago, I noticed bloody-red dots on the side of my shubunkin. I wondered if the newly-added black moor was attacking it, but black moors (or so I have heard through research) are rarely aggressive. Besides, the shubunkin could have easily out-swam the black moor. In addition to this, I've observed the black moor for any signs of aggression, but the most it has done is gently nibble the sides of a fish it coincidentally came across. The shubunkin's red dots looked as if someone had stained a paper with a red sharpie, just allowing the dark red ink to saturate in one area. There were also a bit of what looked like blood to be on its fins. Now, it is brown on its fins, as if the blood dried off. The two giant red dots that were once on its sides are gone, but new dots have begun to form, and a small red dot on its fin has GROWN. It can't be blood, can it? Is something feasting on the shubunkin? If it is, wouldn't there be blood in the water? I did not find the water to be red. Could it possibly be minor internal bleeding from being over-fed? Am I over-exaggerating? Here is a picture of the growing red dot under its fin. Notice there are also some red stuff on its fins. I may seem paranoid, and I apologize, but I don't want any more fish to die, since my last tank was destroyed by protozoan.
