Really hope I can get some more straightforward answers here. So we just bought a perfectly healthy looking oranda to go with our black moor, and now they both have a minor case of ich. They've both had white spots on their tailfins for about 48 hours now, and our black moor, who's a year and a half old, has been getting lethargic and is itching himself against plants and decorations in the tank. We've tried Jungle ick clear in their tank, but they still have spots. We tried to put them both in a 10 gallon quarantine and dropped another ick clear in the 10 gallon, and they were breathing very frequently, and became really lethargic, even after a water change. We've been heating their main tank (a 29 gallon) to about 90 degrees in hopes of killing the ick. We were afraid that they were going to suffocate in the 10 gallon, so we moved them back to the 29 gallon, and they have been very out of breath and lethargic in the 29 gallon still even though they have been in there for 2 hours now. We just turned off the heater to hopefully help give them a little oxygen. My wife loves these goldfish about as much as some people love their dog, and were both really at a loss. Where can we progress from here? Need some good advice.
New Red cap oranda and moor are my joy and this Summer was a disaster as super heat conditions plus a cloud of material from our pine trees which shade our ponds created a special condition which produced in very rapid time ( few hours) a toxic milky white water . This killed many of my prized fishes. Now we restart with a very nice little group of red cap oranda , a few black moor and about fifty nice guppy from Israel and shir lanka. These of course are all inside acquariums. It is a few years since I visit shop and purchase new fish and I am impressed by the high quality of their health. So far only ick and of course the normal % deaths of guppy after travel. I hope that soon I will be able to provide more good news .
This is poor little Hambone. We rescued him out of a tank at a local fish store yesterday. He is tiny and was in a tank with much larger goldfish and a few comets. He was having a hard time of it and it appeared one of the comets was aggravating him. He is missing part of his little tail and has some scales missing on his side. You can soo that in the pictures. He is so little. I have him in a small tank with two feeder guppies that ended up in the bag with some ghost shrimp I bought a while back. He is active and seems healthy.
i got footage of my two blackmoors and the two black telescopes.. Paul, David, Sooty and Mavros Paul is the moor with the long flowy tail and the huge eyes David is the smallest of the two moors Sooty is the Black Telescope with the one flat eye (accident ) but doing really well Mavro is the other Black Telescope looks like sooty, but with two good eyes initially i was shooting all telescopes, but very soon after i started, i decided on just the blacks.. please enjoy
