Hi, I have a floaty oranda so I moved NipChee from a 75 gallon into a 20 gallon long tank last night with 5 gallons of water. He/she seems to have a bit easier time with the swimming but will still be on the side or back more often than not. I've done alot of reading on koko's so I will start duckweed and homemade gel food for floaters. I guess I'm asking if anyone has any experience with the 2 diet changes, any thoughts if NipChee will be able to go back to the 75 gallon or will it be better to keep in a shallower water level permanently? I apologize but I can't copy and paste, the nitrate is 20, ammonia & nitrite 0, ph 7.5, weekly changes apx 30%. NLS algae max soaked in seachem nourish. Thank you for any input
So as some of you know I got a telescope goldfish a couple of weeks back and he/she is fine so far except i noticed a twisted peduncle so he/she rests in a plant pot sometimes when water flow is fast and comes out to eat and swim around as well but just now something has happened... I have just come home from school and I turned on the filters (we turn them off when we aren't here as water is always surrounding the media) and looked away and turned back and saw the telescope goldfish stuck against the filter but quickly turned the filter off and then I saw my blue oranda with a red, sore swelled up eye what do I do?? I can't remove them as I have no space and my prime and kusuri isn't here yet! Please help also here is the thread for details about the telescope and the tank they are in : http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/121133-telescope-goldfish-eye-problem/ Also forgot to mention the telescope is floaty at the minute
My beloved oranda has developed food-related swim bladder issues. He doesn't really have great balance or stability to begin with, and after feeding him ANYTHING, he becomes floaty. Yesterday he was stuck upside down for the entire day just from one bite-sized chunk of SG. I have tried NLS pellets, Soilent Green, Super Green, frozen bloodworms, frozen mysis shrimp, frozen spirulina with brine shrimp, it seems like every single thing I feed him makes him float. Would adding some koi clay or probiotics to the Super Green help at all? I don't have a stove right now so I can't cook up a fancy batch of 100% homemade gel food.

Aqueon sinking pellets once daily plus some veggies * Any new fish added to the tank? 1 when I upgraded * Any medications added to the tank? Some Furan-2 last week, but it should be filtered out by now * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.): nitrogen-cycle shock * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? fish that just died had major fin-fray, oranda has lesions and black fin tips getting worse, white ryukin has a few small red veins in tail, fantail gets floaty sometimes * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? the fish that just died was bottom-sitting but the others are fine, appetite seems decreased * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment.: treated for Ick a few times in old tank, Furan-2 recently I have a small fantail who gets really floaty sometimes, but I can't be sure of the cause because the floating seems sporadic. Sometimes, a few hours after he eats, he'll float upside down or sideways inside the top of a barrel decoration (he's figured this out instead of floating at the surface). Sometimes at night, he'll have trouble staying away from the surface, or he'll even float for so long he appears dead. But this isn't every day. My question is: does this sound like his food is making him floaty (currently, I do not soak it first)? or is this perhaps something more serious, such as a swim bladder issue from being overcrowded? I can try to get a picture if that's needed.
Hi sorry if there is already a topic but I couldn't find one . I have a fish that is floaty but I think it is due to bad food so constipation . ATM sphe / she ( don't know :L) is getting fed 2x a day soaked and squeezed tetra goldfish pellets and occasionally tetra fresh delicia. Used to be on flakes but switched to pellets . After anything I feed him he becomes floaty peas help him sometimes but today was so bad that even peas did not help totally . I really want to try repashy because I have heard great things about it . I don't know where to buy it because on tasty worms everything is in dollars ?? I am also going to get some baby spinach , how do you cook / blanch it ? I'm sorry for such a long post I am just worried about my poor guy
