  1. Hi, I have 2 thirteen year old goldfish. One of the goldfish in the tank is having a bloating issue. Here is the info you would want: pH - 8 KH - 78 or so Ammonia - 0 Ammonia in tap - 0 Nitrate - 0 Nitrate in tap - 0 Nitrite - 0 Nitrite in tap - 0 Substrate - pea gravel (white) Filters - 2 (one canister Fluval 406, one hang on back aquaclear 75) Tank Mates - 2, 13 year old common goldfish are the only fish ever in this tank Food - peas Treatments in tank - Prime, Baking Powder to control KH, H202 for oxygenation Temp - about 74 degrees Goldfish 1 has red streaks in tail but is otherwise eating and pooping. The goldfish I am really concerned about is goldfish 2. Goldfish 2 has red streaks in bottom fins, bloating in belly and now belly is starting to get hints of red on belly. I have not seen any significant excretion of feces in at least a week. I did see one small piece 2 days ago. Was eating 1/2 of a pea for a few days but now is not eating. I have been performing 20% water changes daily for about 5 days now. I have been working with another site but wanted a second opinion on what to do. The water is just finally under control but I have previously had Ammonia and pH issues. The other site helped me balance the water so it wasn't swaying as much which was greatly helpful. Fish were previously living in 1/2 tsp/gallon of salt since I got them. Salt is now removed from tank. I have tried a garlic treatment for one day and they also recommended a dandelion treatment. Need quick help.. this is my baby. I am heartbroken. Video:

  5. The red broadtails are all set up in the 55 gallon tank now! Here's a video In case you were wondering, the white spot on Callisto's left side is a scale that somehow got knocked loose (I think from the air stone I had in the tank earlier) but hasn't fallen off yet. I don't know if you can tell, but she also has a small split in her caudal fin, which I think was from when I moved her from the tub into this tank. So that one was my own stupid fault, guess I wasn't careful enough. :/ But she's fine nonetheless and both are very minor things that will heal fast. These two are little busy-bodies and they seem so happy! They're really fun to watch zooming/waddling around.
  6. Here are some photos of my red Chinese broadtails! The pics aren't the greatest, because they're still in their QT tub, but you get the idea. They're doing really well, but they're a little afraid of me so far. When I come near the tank they get scared and huddle, so it's not easy getting photos. I think they'll be less skittish once I get them in a normal tank like what they're used to. Of course when I'm not nearby, I can see them swimming all over and even making cute smacking noises at the surface every once in a while. I think they're either begging for food, or curious about the bubbles at the surface from the air stone. Here's Callisto. Despite the few breeding tubercles you can see on her gill covers and pectoral fins, she really is a confirmed female. I had always heard female fish can sometimes have tubercles as well, but I had never actually seen it until I got her. From the side-view photos you can really see that her tail is on a very horizontal plane! And Ganymede, a confirmed male. The two of them together. Callisto is a bit larger than Ganymede, she is about 7" and he's about 6.5". These two follow each other everywhere, it's super cute! Thanks for looking! Hopefully I can get better photos when I move them into the 55 gallon tank next week!

    Congrats hun, and very well deserved thank you for your friendly help hun :
  8. Today I got a couple of red broadtails from a member on another forum. He got them from Dandy Orandas three years ago, so they are just a little bit on the older side. I love them! http://solid-gold-fish.blogspot.com/ Here is a video, and there are a few photos and more details on my blog too. Once my 55 gallon tank sump is built (I'm still waiting on the fish store to get back to me on that), they will live in there by themselves.

NO * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment.-Two weeks ago I used Parasite guard because a fish had parasites. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Yes. My minnow has bloody splotches on his tail which is also slightly frayed. He also has tiny red spots that Look like he was pricked with a pin * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? My minnow wasn't eating yesterday and seemed really nervous. I have a rosy red minnow and he has been acting nervous for a few days. I have him in a ten gallon tank with three other fish (an albino corydoras catfish, and two balloon bellied mollies. I KNOW THAT YOU CAN'T PUT TROPICAL FISH WITH GOLDFISH BUT MY FRIEND'S FISH DIED AND SHE HAD SOME ROSY RED MINNOWS LEFT OVER FROM FISH FEEDINGS SO I TOOK 2-one died-) TOday I came home and my minnow had a red spot on his tail so I moved him into a seperate fish bowl. Now the dot has turned into red splotches all over his tail and he has what looks like tiny red pricks on his upper body. There is NO ammonia in the tank and everything else is normal. Does he have septicemia? Or another kind of bacterial infection? He hasn't been looking normal for the past few days either... He would spit out food, and would be very jittery and nervous. Now my cory catfish is spazzing out (like more than normal and I don't want to lose him!!!). Does it have anything to do with what is wrong with the minnow? PLEASE HELP! OH AND.... the temperature in the tank is like 74 degrees (fahrenheit). I changed the water (like 15%) in the tank because if it was a bacterial infection that would help. Quote MultiQuote
