All Gulping once added the new salt today. Here are today's pictures : http://s935.photobucket.com/user/slbradley04/library/?sort=3&page=1 I'm thinking I have a second case of ich in my tank. However, this may be something new. My Telescope Eye (Sunshine) is hanging out at the at the bottom of the tank. (Until water change today) When he sees me, he swims straight towards me. Sometimes he will swim about and then lay back down. I'll keep an eye on him. Everyone one in the tank has a great appetite. My Blackmoor had Swim bladder as of yesterday. He/She is swimming great today. I had been feeding peas to the whole tank. Fed gel food yesterday. Big mistake. I took out my Telescope and Blackmoor placed in hospital tank. I removed 40 gallons of water. I feed the other three fish. Brine Shrimp and a few pellets a piece. Then I added the salted water. I feed a small amount of Brine Shrimp to the two in hospital tank. After adding back the fresh water will salt. I then added some of the fish tank water to the hospital tank. Waited, then put the Blackmoor back in to the main tank. Then I feed the Telescope a few pellets before placing him back in to main tank. I began treating for Ich. If this looks like anything else please let me know. I am willing to change treatment plan. I just want my Goldies healthy. Thanks in advance! P.S. I'm not feeling well. I have Clostridium Difficile Colitis (Bacterial Infection). Caught from friends visiting from out of town. I've been taking Antibiotics. I'm very careful with hand washing before and after caring for my fish. I'm weak and light headed. So, this has been hard on me.

So here it is I have an oranda. He has had a white spot on his wen from about almost the time I purchased him. It comes and goes, so I thought it was wen growth. Then a week ago it got a little fuzzy so I thought maybe fungal. Dabbed the area with a bit of peroxide. Seemed to help. Next day a new little pimple spot appeared. With a white head. Then a little white string coming from it. Within an hour it fell off. Did a bit of research and thought maybe anchor worm. But looked at picks and there wasn't a "y" end to it nor a red spot where it was coming from. So I was told to try bio bandage on it. I have been applying that with feeding him medi gold. Seemed to get better where it went down and became that slightly whit area again on the wen. I applied the bio bandage again this morning, but after about 15 min I noticed something stringy coming out again. This time the color was slightly orange. Not sure if it was the bio bandage coloring it. Because I notice it turns slight pinkish when applied. Then again as quick as it appeared it disappeared. Now later today looks like that whit wen growth again. If you couldn't tell I'm extremely confused and concerned. All his friends including him are eating and acting normal. No other visible signs of anything wrong. So what should I do? Is it tape worms, anchor worms, treat for flukes, fungal, or something else. Worried about my little guy. I have pics just not sure how to post them? Thank you all!
Hi =) This is my first post. I'm pretty new to owning fish and stuff. I had a fantail goldfish (named Kiyoko) for about 5 months at the beginning of the year..kept it in a bowl.. it died after a new fish gave it fin rot and fungus.. But anyway. I now have a 16litre tank. I have a black moor. I had another but it died of stress and wouldnt eat. BUT> Now I have recently bought two new fish, lionheads, 2 days ago. And I've noticed now that they both have little white spots. The one lionhead has one on his tail that I can see so far and two close together on his head on the red growth/lump, they look kinda cottony but I'm concerned. The other lionhead has the same thing. I NEED TREATMENT HELP =(.. The black moor is healthy though. I put a tablespoon of course salt in already about an hour ago, and a couple drops of this solution called STOP FUNGUS (8 drops. but it says 4 drops per 4 litres) in just in case (didn't actually work for my last fish) two days ago . My lionheads, the one is quite big, maybe 2-3 inches and the other i little smaller maybe 1-2 and a half inches. I do a 50% water change weekly in general. I use water conditioner, I dont have it with me at the moment but it's a blue liquid that disappears as soon as it's put in the water. I have a basic water filter, can't remember the name sorry.. I last did the water change not this week but the last thursday before that because i'm not sure if i should wait till this thursday to clean it cause of the new fish. I feed my fish once a day with general goldfish flakes about half a tablespoon and occasionally a boiled pea or two.. I need as much help and info as possible, I've become very interested in having fish now and i'd hate to lose these ones.. =( HEEELPP???
We've just got, what I think, is a white spot problem with our fish. We have 4 fish in total; 2 zebra and 2 others (can't for the life of me remember what they're called at present - one is in the picture below). We had the 2 zebras in the tank for around 4 weeks and then introduced the 2 others. Around a week later they started to get white spots on their bodies and fins. They all seem lively enough at the moment but I obviously want to treat this now. On Thursday I added 3ml of Love Fish Anti White Spot and Parasite treatment as per the instructions on the bottle. Then 4 days later (Monday) I added a further 3ml of treatment. From what I can see though this doesn't seem to be having any effect on the fish and they still seem to be covered in white spots; some worse than others. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Amonia, Nitrate (toxic) levels: 0 Nitrate level: 40-160ppm PH: Neutral Tank: Biorb 30 (30 litres) 10% water change every 7 days
