How many Goldfish


Found 2 results

  1. this is my new oranda who is a boy and is 7 inches total length. his body alone is 4 inches. also I have a new tank but decided that the fish is more important so put the video in this section sorry my Ipod doesn't pick up sound well my new fish and tank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5FQe7LbCE8&feature=youtu.be
  2. I have no money for additional medicine until tomorrow evening when I get paid. On hand I have aquarium salt, epsom salt, prime, stress coat, quick cure and parasite guard. It should also be noted the ranchu in the tank is doing some bottom sitting and heavy breathing like the oranda but not exhibiting any issues. Did I almost kill them both? Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level - 0 - .25 * Nitrite Level - 0 * Nitrate level - (ran out of drop tests) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7- 7.2 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7 - 7.2 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API drops * Water temperature? 70 - 73 * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 10 gallon QT tank * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Two small sponge filters and a 30 gallon HOB filter with carbon removed. * How often do you change the water and how much? 25% once a day - test the water daily. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Last night - 80% to remove meds. * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 fish, one small ranchu and one large oranda. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? api stress coat * What do you feed your fish and how often? nls pellets, blood worms, peas * Any new fish added to the tank? just these two in qt at the same time * Any medications added to the tank? parasite guard, aq salt, stress coat, or quick cure as described in the first paragraph. * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) n/a * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. This oranda had just come out of QT at petsmart but I decided to QT her anyway when I got home after my disaster losing my last stock due to improper QT. I treated her with parasite guard tabs, which has prazi as the first active ingredient, as well as metro and one or two other things. After that treatment I did a double dose of quick cure (at the stores recommendation) with a half dose of AQ salt for a few days. For water conditioner I have been using stress coat as the fish had just come out of QT and had a few scales missing. The oranda now has clamped fins and is slightly front heavy and doing a bit of bottom sitting. Sometimes she swims normally, sometimes she sits. Have I just stressed and nearly killed my oranda with medications that were unnecessary? I am absolutely beside myself, I checked with the store every day until she came out of QT and am so worried about her. I don't want to lose her. Her poops are coated in a whitish coating and she has basically stopped eating. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? As of today the fins have a few frayed looking white ends, the poop is covered in a whitish coating and she's not eating much. I see no parasites of any kind or bloody streaks. Breathing is VERY LABORED AND SLOW AND SHALLOW. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Not eating, bottom sitting, top heavy, seems a little wobbly due to clamped fins. If there is anyone in the portland or vancouver area who would like to come by and see the fish or knows of a vet who can help fish, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am absolutely beside myself!
