I took cycled media from a betta tank, but I guess it did not hold enough BBs for a goldfish. Just tested the water in prep for a water change and was shocked to see some ammonia and high nitrites. The fish has developed a white lump on her tail that you can see on top and also underneath. This started yesterday. Also beginning to show bloody streaks in the tail that were not there this morning. I changed about 70%, still at .1% salt, no prazi, and am setting up new water in a bucket with an airstone to bring the Ph up for another water change tomorrow. Is there anything else I should do? And what is the lump? I could not get a really good picture, but this probably gives a pretty good idea of what I am seeing: http://i409.photobucket.com/albums/pp178/Spillie/tail002.jpg
