How many Goldfish


Found 1 result

  1. Hi there, Sorry to introduce myself so abruptly, but I'm scared for my new ranchu Hiro. I received him from Dandy Oranda on August 28 and I thought he was just recovering from shipment, but he is still sluggish. He ate a little gel food on the first day, but hasn't touched anything since. He mostly just sits on the bottom of the hospital tub and when he does swim, it's with a rocky lopsided motion. I've tried to give him peas, but he won't eat them. I noticed he had clear stringy poop on the second day, but nothing since. We moved him to a 16 gal. qt tub filled with 10 gal. of water from a 55 gallon tank that held plants and two small goldfish last night. The water in the tub is treated with Kanaplex because we thought it might be a bacterial issue and he had a torn fin. Here are the stats of the hospital tub: Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) o * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)6.5 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API strips and drops * Water temperature? 72 * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? He was in a 55 gal running about a month with established media * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aqua top canister filter * How often do you change the water and how much? Weekly 75% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 3 days * How many fish in the tank and their size? 3 goldfish ( 3"-4" oranda and ryukin and a 4" ranchu) * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Stress coat * What do you feed your fish and how often? Soilent green gel food, fresh veggies, blood worms * Any new fish added to the tank? Ranchu * Any medications added to the tank? Kanaplex and garlic juice to hospital tub * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. 1 dose of Kanaplex, 1 tbsp. of garlic juice * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Torn fin, probably from shipment * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Staying at the bottom and not swimming Also, I shot a quick video to show his movement:
