  1. Hi, I'm definately in need of guidance please. I found a betta a big chain store that appears to have swim bladder issues (floating & on his side at the top of the cup) but I also see the scales sticking out by the swim bladder when he goes from a normal swimming position to floating back to the top then turns on his side. I am wondering if it is possible dropsy or if the scales stick out just because he gets into a certain position. From what I could tell, the scales didn't stick out when he was in the normal position but he wasn't in a normal position for very long. I feel sorry for him and would like to get him, understanding the swim bladder issue needs but if he has dropsy or the start of, I will not get him as I've never had positive results with dropsy treatment. Also, he would have to come home with me by airplane cargo because I'm out of town. Would that be harmful to him? Thank you for any help
  2. I upgraded my 4 goldies (1 small, 2 med, 1 large) to a 75 gallon 2 weeks ago. Parameters matched old & new tank. Api test (drops) on 5/29 (set up) : ammonia 0, nitrate 10, nitrite 0, ph 8.2. I moved the established filters & media to the 75g, filtration is 800 gph. water test on 5/30 was nitrate 20, ph 8.2, ammonia & nitrite 0. Water test 6/1 results: same. Water test 6/5: same. Water change 6/8 of apx 12 gallons. I tested the water today & all same except ammonia at 1.0, my large oranda has lifted scales/pinecone. I check the fish daily and he/she wasn't like this. Water is r.o. with seachem gold trace, buffer, prime, salt. All fish are eating, I am unsure of the age. I did a 20 gallon water change 2 hours ago & double dose prime. the ro ph is 6.0 so I need to do small frequent water changes bc of the ph difference, I do have a better idea of how to do larger water changes that are safe for the fish, I didn't get it done since 6/8 because of long work schedule and my geriatric dog was having some health issues (he's ok now). Anyway, I have kanaplex and metronidazole (seachem), what should I do to help the fish: qt, meds, both, anything else? Thank you for any suggestions
