  1. Please copy & paste fill the following form and fill it out to the best of your ability when requesting help for Goldfish Problems: Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0.25 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0.0 * Nitrate level(Tank) 10ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) 1.0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0.0 * Nitrate level(Tap) 0.0 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.4, 107.4, 161.1 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.4-8.2, kH 53.7, gH 71.6 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API drops * Water temperature? 78-80 *F (I have an over-heating heater and have to unplug it at 80* or else it will heat it to 84) * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 5.5g running with established media transferred from 2.5g tank for about three-ish weeks (Hard to remember, I got two 5.5g within a very short time of each other, at the most 3 weeks, at the least 2 weeks) * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Well I transferred the filter media from the original 2.5g filter, which shredded his fins, to the whisper 2-10g internal filter with adjustable flow, which shredded his fins, took that one out and put in a sponge filter, which has now shredded his fins a third time! * How often do you change the water and how much? 1 gallon twice a week, I use a turkey baster to get down and clean out the gravel. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 1g on Sunday, am about to do tonight's 1g waterchange. * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 VT betta, 1.5 inches not including tail. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime and liquid plant food and 1/4 cup crushed coral. * What do you feed your fish and how often? hikari mini pellets and bloodworms. Bloodworms are a treat, the pellets are 2 pellets twice a day. * Any new fish added to the tank? no, just that darn filter! * 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. The first time his fins ripped, I found him suctioned to the intake of the 2.5g filter, I salted the tank that time for two weeks with 2 tsp of salt. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Anytime I add a filter, he will "challenge" it and I think he gets himself sucked in somehow trying to fight it. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Picking fights with inanimate objects... Ive gone through three filters with Rufio, each time I finally get his fins healed and add a different type of filter/different level of current/buffering/etc. his fins are shredded within minutes! I got a sponge filter today, set it up and his fins are the worst they've ever been, even with two internal filters that he got sucked to the intake!! I set it up with an air adjustment valve and everything, lowest setting... what do I do? I have tried everything and every time he heals he gets torn to shreds because I put a filter in. This is what he looks like when his fin heals, and it takes weeks, I'm so discouraged!
