Hello ~ I noticed a growth on the side of Miss Beatrice last night. I can't get a close enough look to identify it...I don't think it's columnaris, ich or parasites. It seems more to be a 'growth'. Beatrice is swimming normally (she's a 'Fancy') and is eating. Behaving normally, for the most part. I suspect that my little grandson 'helped' by feeding the other day....yesterday was the day I siphoned the bottom, changed about 25% of the water. Tank bottom was dirty with uneaten food..... I also changed the filter media. I've been using a little heater because our house get scold during the winter months and at night: I've unplugged the heater since it's hot out now. Can someone tell me the ideal temperature range for her tank? a friend had told me 80degrees for Fancy goldfish, but I thought this might be too warm? I will change out some more of the tank today: I figured another 25% to try to get up any leftovers I might have missed yesterday. PH is a bit low at about 70, so will add some Seachem Regulator during the change. Can someone advise me re: meds? I have trouble finding antibiotics here, but have some Maracyn 11 on hand. I didn't start bedcause I wanted advice first. Anything else I should be doing? Thanks!
