  1. Hey everyone, My oranda Wendal is having a very hard time. I believe he had SBD but its gotten so bad recently, I have no idea what to do. Just in the past couple days, he's been lying on his side (he used to just bottom sit and have a hard time swimming up). Now he can barely swim at all. He struggles to move anywhere, and just gives up. His tail is full of red streaks. I've kept the light off lately (or only turned it on for a short amount of time) to perhaps help with the stress. My other fish is doing absolutely fine. I did a water change 2 days ago, and the water is in great condition. I don't have a test kit, and don't have access to one for a while... Test Results for the Following: I don't have a test kit right now * Ammonia Level * Nitrite Level * Nitrate level * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? * Water temperature? : about 21C (70-ish F) * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? : 38 gallon, been running for years * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? : aquaclear 50 and tetra whisper 45 * How often do you change the water and how much? : weekly, about 30-40% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change?: 2 days, about 30% * How many fish in the tank and their size? : 2, both about 5 inches including tail * What kind of water additives or conditioners? : mainly Prime (I occasionally use aqua plus and cycle) * What do you feed your fish and how often? : omega one sinking pellets (daily), frozen bloodworms and other frozen foods (rarely) * Any new fish added to the tank?: no * Any medications added to the tank? : no * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? : red streaks in tail * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? : was sitting on the bottom, now he's lying on his side on the bottom, having a very hard time swimming, not eating as much anymore as he doesn't even see the food, once in a while he puts in a huge effort, swims right to the top, and immediately drops like a rock to the bottom. I really hope this is enough info for someone to help us I know I don't have test kit results, but in the past, my water has been almost always perfect, and I really haven't changed anything I've been doing, so I'm assuming that the water condition is good. The plants in my tank look healthy, the water is clear. *sigh* I really want to fix Wendal...!
