  1. Hi all, As you know, my ribbontail Duchess has not been improving very quickly on Prazi. Today her tail has become more flushed with inflamed capillaries, and during a big water change, I took her out of the tank to avoid stressing her with all of the splashing (I use buckets, alas). I decided to test her belly since I've heard that that's a since of an internal bacterial infection, and I'm not sure what counts as "mushy" since I have never tested a goldfish belly before. Her belly didn't feel "hard." Instead, it was kind of like a softer rubber that bounced back when I pressed it gently but didn't feel super firm. Is this a mushy belly? If this is a mushy belly, I'd like advice how to treat it and if I should continue with Prazi. She just finished Round 4 and has uncontrolled swimming, knocked off scales, and some bottom sitting Here are some pictures from above. Her tank parameters are perfect: 0 ppm ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates; pH 8.0 (buffered with GoldBuffer); I use Prime and Flourish Comprehensive and Excel in addition to the buffer; she has been at .1% salt concentration with a normal amount of prime (.5 tsp per 10 gallons, and she lives alone in a 30 gallon tank with some plants and a piece of very boiled driftwood). Tap water parameters are 0 with a 7.0 pH. Please help! I have a number of antibiotics on hand: Kanaplex, Metroplex, Triple Sulfa, the Maracyns, Furan-2 Thanks
  2. So many of you longtime members may remember me. I have kind of gotten out of goldfish keeping after almost 25 years. I have moved two times and still had massive issues in the last three years. I have gone from rock to sand to no substrate, completely started my tanks over...gone city and well water and for the last three years I keep getting squishy stomachs, ulcers, floaty issues and death in my fish. I mean I have bought whole new tanks and filters and started 100% over and still it happened. I have medicated, salted, dipped, quarantined, stressed, cried done 25% water changes, 100% water changes, 50%...daily or weekly and watched my parameters like a hawk. After much debate because to be honest I truly miss keeping fish I have wondered if maybe anyone else has noticed these issues when they switched to all enclosed canister filtration? Back when I had hang on the back filtration I never EVER had problems. The only die off I experienced was from power outages and lack of oxygen for 3 days even with me blowing water into there...or over water change shock. I am no scientist on bacteria...but since my issues seem to diagnose to bacterial infections and I have even bought brand new filters with built in UV lights, started all over and lost all my new fish within 6 months to the same type of symptoms. WHAT THE HECK?? I like the enclose filters because it eliminates the gunky hang on the back filter smell but maybe not having access to oxygen or being open running water it develops some other kind of harmful bacteria?? I don't know after three years of trying EVERYTHING...It is the only thing I can think to change but before I eliminate my canister filters and restart a stock tank pond or new tank I thought I would ask Koko's what they think?
