How many Goldfish

  1. Hi all, I have a question about a spot on my fantail goldfish's tail. She also has some very mild fraying in two spots, but she's always moving so it's hard to get as HQ a picture as I would like. She does not always swim with her head down--I know that Erik Johnson says that this can be a sign of an internal bacterial infection. She just likes to dig. I am concerned about what to do since normally I would dose a .3% salt solution; would a salt bath work instead? I also don't know if this is a bacterial or fungal issue. I am reluctant to dose Pimafix since she seemed to be pretty out of it when I have tried it in the past. My parameters aren't as stable as I would like--I would like to see more nitrates--so I am nervous about anything that would disrupt the biofilter. Here are my parameters, etc: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 after water change, .25 ppm this morning * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 ppm * Nitrate level(Tank) 0-5 ppm (orangeish hue to yellow) * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrate level(Tap) 0 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.0 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.0 Other Required Info:* Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Master Kit * Water temperature? 74-76 F * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 29 gallons, 5 years with biofilter disruptions * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aquaclear 70 (2 of them) * How often do you change the water and how much? lately, daily or every other day due to trace ammonia and paranoia * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 50% this morning * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 fish around 3 inches body length * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime, Flourish comprehensive * What do you feed your fish and how often? 2x daily; mixture of spirulina, recently New Life Spectrum pellets (previous Aqueon goldfish pellets), peas periodically, treats: brine shrimp about every 2 weeks * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? Melafix for 3 days now * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Prazi about a month and a half ago (2 rounds as per bottle instructions); haven't salted in a long time due to plant addition; I have done antibiotics (Maracyn 1 and 2) for a columnaris infection one year ago; methalyne blue bath about 1.5 weeks ago * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? slight fraying and opaque spot * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? seems nervous and agitated since the death of her tank mate; startles easily but otherwise inquisitive and hungry Thank you!
