Hello, I have 3 goldfish (had 4 recently, but one died ) Test Results for the Following: I dont have any means do do this.... any suggestions for items commonly available at chemist shops? Other Required Info: * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? : Some sort of canister filter * What kind of water additives or conditioners? : anti-chlorine drops and some general goldfish aid. * Water temperature? room temperature, around 20-28 degrees C, throughout the day. * How often do you change the water and how much? About 30-50% each week, filter is cleaned every 2 weeks * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Over 8 days 50%, delayed because I didnt want to do anything that'd hurt the goldfish. * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 24x20x15 inches, running for ~1.5 years, with complete cleanings every 6 months (I remove all goldfish, thoroughly clean the inside, gravel, and change around 80% of the water. filter is untouched for at least 1 week, then it too is cleaned) * How many fish in the tank and their size? 3 Fish. the sick one is 2 inches (body) the other 2 are 1-1.5 inches, bought about a week back. * What do you feed your fish and how often? goldfish pellets, 2 times daily, soaked for 10-20 seconds, about 8 pellets each. * Any new fish added to the tank? 2, about a week ago * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) : none, was perfectly healthy till date, been around 1.5 years * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? : A bit of white stuff on the tail, might be poo, or nothing. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? : None, normal behaviour... maybe a bit less hungry, but nothing too radical. Also, I havent seen him poo for about a week. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.

Hi guys i have bought a Calico Fantail that is big size (obvious it is an adult). The fish was recently received at the fish store and have bought it straightforward so it might be stressed and had Ich, but, does not show any other signs of sickness, fins are in excellent condition and scales are not raised, so i don't think it has dropsy. After 12 hours, Ich seemed to have disappeared (thanks to the aquarium salt). ALSO NOTE: The other goldfish at the pet shop had ripped fins, Ich and some had really raised scales (dropsy). When i placed it in the quarantine tank (which i have established for many months now with filter and air pump) i noticed the fish had a swollen belly on the right side (near where the tail starts, not on the middle of the fish). Also note my quarantine tank has Aquarium salt and PraziPro and was Tested with API kit which showed: PH level 7.9, Ammonia 0ppm, Nitrate 0ppm, Nitrate 15ppm I have made some research and have found that swollen belly could be one of the following: - Dropsy (i don't think so because my fish is very active and has a big appetite and scales ARE NOT raised) - Internal parasites - Tumour (it doesn't look like a lump but i am not that experienced to know) - Liver problem - Egg bound (please have in mind the temperature here the last 7 days has suddenly changed from 28 Celsius to 20 Celsius and barometer also decreased and was in a bag with lots of other goldfish for many days until it was transferred to the pet shop) - Birth deformity I will try and take a photo and post a link in a few hours. Also, I will not feed it for 3 days. If it is egg bound should i put one of my male goldfish? (i know which ones are males because i had them breed and i already raised goldfish babies) Or, should i try pushing the eggs out myself (which i have no idea how to do). Can you guys advice me further, please Thanks in advance, Spyro
