Hi Everyone, we have three fancy goldfish; two fantail and one black moor. About two months ago, the black moor developed a fungus. We did regular water changes, fungal treatments and salts. We also seperated the fish and increased the aeration in his temporary tank. The fungus is mostly gone, however after 6 weeks of repeated treatment, this fish has a pink/red growth/lump coming from behind his gill plate (see photos) This fish still eats and slowly swims but isn’t very energetic compared to the other two. my question is; do we carry on with the treatment or is it more humane to euthanise this fish? thank you for any advice you can give, Lorna
I have inherited 9 goldfish in my new home. Initially, they were all healthy in November and ate pellets once or twice a month ( because winter) but in late February the water turned black and I never saw the fish. This is when I being a naive pond owner, cleaned the entire pond, and unknowingly scrubbed all the good bacterias. I feel like a murderer now as in the last 2 months 1 fish has died and all fish have been sick. We added pure aqua bomb 5 weeks back, tested the water and all looks fine but the fish health is no better. This includes a visit from Des Harris ( Southeast Koi club). He provided us Praziquantel for Flukes for the 1st week and FMG for the second dose. I see at least 4 of my fish have got fungal (the fish did had the same along with bruises during spawning). So now I have added API salt in 3 parts i.e 1kg every 8 hours. In total 3 kg for 300 liters of water because I noticed few had fungus and swim bladder symptoms. I have tested the water using api drip kit( PH 7.5-8, NItrite-0, Ammonnia- 0.25, Phosphate - 0.25) Please advice what should I do further?
Hello! I am new to KoKo's and I've been directed to here by a lot of my friends. My large oranda that I had purchased from Petsmart has great wen growth. But they other day there was this random growth that was hanging off the side of her wen and it was jiggling everywhere, it was red and white. I inspected it then put her back in the regular tank with some aquarium salt. Then 5 minutes later, it was gone! People were suggesting she had hole in the head syndrome, but then the next day the tiny hole filled in with a lot of wen! Now the part looks cottony and white, its weird. I am worried and I do not know hwat it is, please help! I don't know how to add any photos or videos
