  1. Hello everyone, I have a 2.5 year old female Ryukin that is unwell. Late on Saturday I noticed she didn't come up to the top of the pond (500L above ground black plastic hydroponics tub that is outdoors) for food like the other 3 fish in the pond. On closer inspection I noticed some whitish lumps on her face. I separated her into a 50L indoor tank and on Sunday started treatment with Myxazin (after consulting with local pet store). Over the weekend she had a lot of slime coat coming off and refused to eat anything. On Tuesday she seemed a lot happier, slime coat stopped shedding and was eating but the lumps still remain (and it looks like more tiny white ones are appearing). I have been changing the water everyday and replacing the Myxazin. Today is day 5 of Myxazin treatment and I don't know what to do - should I continue treatment for a few more days or try something else? The lumps look a lot like crusty warts. Even though she is eating, she sits at the bottom of the tank a lot and only swims around occasionally. The other remaining fish all seem fine. I do weekly 80% water changes as I use the water for my flower garden. The only other thing in the pond is elodea - no rocks or dirt. Would anyone have any idea what the lumps might be and their treatment? Could they be contagious to other fish? My water parameters are below. * Ammonia Level(Pond) 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Pond) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Pond) 5ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tap) 5ppm * Ph Level, Pond (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.4 ph * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.6 ph Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API freshwater master kit - drops * Water temperature? Unknown - mild Subtropical Autumn here daytime temps 25 degrees Celsius * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 500 Litres - has been running for 4 months * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Homemade "Skippy" style filter with 2500L/hr pump, fully cycled * How often do you change the water and how much? Weekly - approx 80% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Pond Yesterday - approx 80% - Hospital tank daily water changes * How many fish in the tank and their size? 4 Goldfish in total - 2 Large Ryukin, 1 Medium Oranda, 1 Small Ryukin * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Seachem Safe in pond - API Stress Coat in hospital tank * What do you feed your fish and how often? Twice/day - Hikari Lionhead, Hikari Algae wafers, peas, bloodworms * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? Nothing to pond - Myxazin added to hospital tank * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. 5 Days of Myxazin treatment in 50L hospital tank * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? White lumps and bumps on head above eyes * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Was shedding a lot of slime coat, sitting at the bottom of the tank and not interested in food. Many thanks, Linda
  2. I got a new black moor and put it in QT and started the prazi treatment (with Kusuri) and today is the end of round two but as I scoop him/her I notice two lumps on his/her head and one on its gill and its also got some excess slime coat and I think there may be another lump pushing up some scales. I will get pics and fill the D&D form out but I'm cleaning the tank what should I do?? Should I continue with prazi and add salt or what?? Thanks
