Guest posted a topic in Sick Fish? Need Help?Hagen Mini Master Nutrafin Test kit * Ammonia Level (tank):0 * Nitrite Level (tank) .3 * Nitrate level (Tank) 5 * Ph Level, (Tank) 7.5 I just added salt to the water - 10 spoons for 50 gal tank. I have a Fluval filter set. My Lionhead goldfish has been acting lethargic for the past week. The tank is clean, I changed about 10 gal of water on Saturday May 11th. No additives. Other fish are a 9" pleco, a 2" dwarf catfish, a 3" calico goldfish, 3" siamese algae eater. He is not eating - not even peas, sitting on the bottom of the tank, dorsal fin up, a red spot has developed on the top of his wen. The wen has grown fairly large..although I have nothing to compare it too. His belly seems to be getting a bit swollen and I am in a panic when I read about dropsy! The other goldfish stays close to him but seems fine, swimming about. If I tap on the glass he will swim away behind a rock. There does not seem to be any discolouration or red veins. I don't know what to do because I can't figure out what may be wrong with him!
