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 .
