How many Goldfish

  1. In the last month I have lost two fish, an ulcer and one to sudden death. Prior to this I lost my first fish ever from ulcer. Each death was different. The first was wen ulcer, (Tiger) it formed very slowly. Took a long time to become an obvious issue. Only became aggressive towards the end. He was a new fish, had a spot on its wen that didn't look bad or sunken or gross. QT him for 3 of 4 weeks I don't quite remember... then one or two months later the blemish started to sink and became the ulcer. Second was a sudden death. Fine one day, no signs of stress, lumps bumps spots or ulcers. Started bottom sitting one afternoon, thought it may have been constipated. In morning found him dead ? Third was fine one day, next had a angry ulcer at her tail. Its progression was fast, suspected syst that burst then got Infected but cannot be sure. All symptoms and progressions are different, but the outcome the same. I have racked my brain and the Internet to find answers but the only conclusion is "ill never know". My gut tells me its not contagious due to the fact the characteristics of each lead up to death have been different, but I do not open my fish to see if the problem starts on the inside. (Nor do I want to) But I cannot ignore the fact I never had a problem for 2 years until my first babie got sick.... which makes me think It could be contagious. Aaargh! Anyways. I have chosen to assume it is contagious and launch OPPERATION QT Im going to treat both tanks as if they were brand new stock. Round of prazi & salt. Bi daily WC. 3 months. I have chosen 3 months because it took approximately 3 months for my first sick fish to show obvious symptoms. Going to try this garlic elixer remedy off goldfish 911 and soak there food in it. I have also asked on a different thread for advice on ways I can improve my general tank maintenance. I am getting larger filters for both tanks, changing there diet slightly. Once the QT is over assuming everything is ok ill put one fish from the 3ft into the 4 ft and stocking will be adequate. The thread is called Tank maintenance and tank health. Reason for this post is im open to any and all opinions, advise, moral support anyone can offer. I want to give my fish the best chance at fighting this thing. Wish me luck
