I did my twice weekly water change yesterday and I can't believe I missed this! Two other fish are showing symptoms. Water parameters are normal. I have Epsom salt and Kordon Rid-Ick Plus. Kanaplex and Metroplex, too. My tank is 125 gallons with about 10 small goldies. There is a 20 gallon QT tank set up. Should I just dose the whole tank? You folks saved Fred last year with your recommendation of antibiotics. Please advise! Thanks!
Hi, This is one of my new fish bought today from our LFS. I didn't notice until we came home, but I think he may have ick? Can anyone confirm this for me please? I have him in a QT tank with the other fish I picked up today, a pearlscale. They were both in the same bag from the shop, so I did not bother to QT them separately as I figured that they would both have the same pathogens now. How do I proceed with the QT procedure for them both? Do I salt and treat for ick? or just treat for ick, and when it is gone salt and prazi? Do you have a link for ick treatment? this is a photo Test Results for the Following:* Ammonia Level(Tank) 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tank) 0ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tap) 0ppm * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.4 kh55 gh250 approx. * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.4 kh55 gh250 approx.

Hi Gang, My Goldie is probably terminal, but I'm hoping there is a chance I can save him with your help. Was thinking he had Ich so began treating him with Kordon's Ick Attack for the past several days. He was fine until I came home this afternoon at 5pm, and I found him like this: What do you all think? Break out the clove oil? :/
