Tank & filter new as of year ago What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Fluval 306 How often do you change the water and how much?

Added 2 1/2 capfuls of API Melafix today List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/109162-goldies-ryukin-need-your-help-please/ Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Bloody streaks, frayed fins Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? March 11 - Red cap bottom sitting, bloody streaks & not eating (not even peas). March 12 woke to leaning sideways at bottom of tank (still not eating and mild blood streaks/spots) so did an 80% water change. Today fins are very bloody and slightly frayed but swimming better now, still low but not bottom sitting, and ate peas. My red cap had a red spot some time ago but no torn fins and over time it faded. As seen above he was bottom sitting and lethargic/not eating so I did a large water change (placed them in a bucket in the meantime to make sure they wouldn't be too stressed). This afternoon after we got back from a day out, her fins are frayed and looking awful. PIcs attached. I think it's nitrate poisoning or septicemia. I think I need to give antibiotics like tetracycline, salt or continue treating with melafix... but I really don't know for sure and I don't want to do anything without knowing for sure. I don't have anything except salt, prime and melafix on hand and I normally shop at goldfishconnection but I understand that closed... so I need another place to buy meds as well as what I should get.

Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Was treated a few months ago with double prazi and salt dips to rid the fin flukes * You can really help us to identify with the concern more accurately if you post some pictures and a short video. So as I have answered in the questions, I suspect Leonard has flukes again..... I'm totally not 100% sure though..... I was thinking I should do a salt dip and then treat with double prazi again, but I'm not sure since now there is actual pineconing..... What do you think this is?? Here is from above.... not sure if you can see the left side of is body looks to be shaped a bit differently from the right Here is from the side. Notice how he just sits there Here you can see the lifted scales on the right side of the tail. They are just barely sticking up, but I can see it Here is the tail split and the veins Please help guys!!
