How many Goldfish


Found 1 result

  1. Test Results; QT Tank - 0,0,0 give or take. Tis uncycled, doing at least once daily waterchanges Tap - 0,0,0 Tank and tap pH 7.2 Other Required Info: Test-kit - API drops Water temperature - 21C Tank - QT tank of 60L running 2 weeks. Filter - AC 200 Waterchanges - At least once daily, 100% Last changed 100% yesterday How many fish in the tank and their size - One oranda, Doc. 4.5inch exc. tail. Additives or conditioners - Prime Feeding - Feeding him mixed pellets (hikari, NLS) by hand an hour or two before I do waterchanges New fish - No. Medications - No. Entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank - Salted and prazi'd October last year. Furan 2 treatment for suspected bacterial infection September last year Unusual findings on the fish - Red wound from contact with air, the red area is also soft to touch. Unusual behavior - Floating upside down. If turned the right way up he'll swim happily for a few seconds then flip over again. More info! Doc was put out in the pond February 16 with my other orandas (that's the end of summer ish here btw) Now it's winter and when I checked on them during a bad cold spell I spotted Doc upside down, not at the surface as he is now. I was concerned he was having issues with the cold so I brought him inside into QT, matched the QT tank water temp to the pond's and let it adjust to room temp. That was 2 weeks ago. He has become more active since then and will eat happily when food is stuffed in his face, but it's the red that's bothering me. I've been applying vaseline to the exposed part of his belly once a day, but not sure it's helping. He doesn't seem able to flip himself the right way up, but he's not exactly trying - he's always been one for sitting at the bottom not doing anything till feeding. I doubt his floating is constipation related since it's unlikely they were eating much in the pond and the level of floatiness hasn't changed since I brought him in, but I'll be feeding peas just in case. The redness/squishiness at the moment is my bigger concern and reason for posting. What's the normal procedure for persistent floaters? Is it worth attempting a sling or will that cause more problems? His fins are streaky from me grabbing him to apply the vaseline/feed him, aaaand the black on his pectoral fin is unrelated and has been there a long time.
