Hi, I have 2 thirteen year old goldfish. One of the goldfish in the tank is having a bloating issue. Here is the info you would want: pH - 8 KH - 78 or so Ammonia - 0 Ammonia in tap - 0 Nitrate - 0 Nitrate in tap - 0 Nitrite - 0 Nitrite in tap - 0 Substrate - pea gravel (white) Filters - 2 (one canister Fluval 406, one hang on back aquaclear 75) Tank Mates - 2, 13 year old common goldfish are the only fish ever in this tank Food - peas Treatments in tank - Prime, Baking Powder to control KH, H202 for oxygenation Temp - about 74 degrees Goldfish 1 has red streaks in tail but is otherwise eating and pooping. The goldfish I am really concerned about is goldfish 2. Goldfish 2 has red streaks in bottom fins, bloating in belly and now belly is starting to get hints of red on belly. I have not seen any significant excretion of feces in at least a week. I did see one small piece 2 days ago. Was eating 1/2 of a pea for a few days but now is not eating. I have been performing 20% water changes daily for about 5 days now. I have been working with another site but wanted a second opinion on what to do. The water is just finally under control but I have previously had Ammonia and pH issues. The other site helped me balance the water so it wasn't swaying as much which was greatly helpful. Fish were previously living in 1/2 tsp/gallon of salt since I got them. Salt is now removed from tank. I have tried a garlic treatment for one day and they also recommended a dandelion treatment. Need quick help.. this is my baby. I am heartbroken. Video:
