Dear Lovely People at Koko's, I am in desperate need of your help. 128 L 2 Aqua Internal 200's 1 Ryukin Amidala 1 Oranda Cleo No ammonia Ph Levels (both) normal Nitrates and Nitrites Water clear API testing kit As you can see from the names Amidala and Cleo, they are both named after queens, hence my user name ... My Oranda is very very sick. This has been going on , on and off for a very long time, 5 months at least. Her current symptoms are: Bottom sitting, Panting, lethargicness, weightloss, whirling, large white spots that sometimes appear frayed. She can swim but it takes a lot of effort and she returns to the bottom panting 90 percent of the time. The only symptoms my Ryu has displayed have been the white spots on her dorsal fin and these have dissapeared after the use of Pimafix but she is stressed and darting. Swiming fine but looking a bit red and has dulled her colours. On the advice of many pet stores and internet research I have treated as follows/for: Ich: Given hydrogen peroxide baths and done huge water changes plus salt, and treat ich naturally if it were present. (The spots only faded for a while so...) Anti white spot: Interpret, temporary improvement followed by worsening (the spots are large not salt like so next pet store reccommended Mela fix for fungal) Fungal Infections: Mela fix, temporary improvement. Bacterial Infections: Pimafix. temporary improvement. I have fed peas just to eliminate gut problems and improve buoyancy, Bear in mind this has been across 5 months...It seems such a mess. It all seems to help but not resolve; which leads me to believe there are different things going on here, which is why I am deathly confused :/ I have also done: 25, 50 and 80 percent water changes as the forum advises for Fancies. I am at my wits end and very scared I will loose my fish, they look unhappy and tired and I realise that the variety of different treatments are stressing them out but truly have no clue what to do next. I am sad you guys, I'm not one of those owners that isn't careful and they used to be so happy. I really don't know what to do , please could you help as soon as your lives will allow. If I've missed out anything you need, or I need to pay you, don't shout at me.... just please let me know.

Hi I am new to Kokos and have been reading all the forums to find a cure for my sick fish, Bob. Bob has been lying at the bottom of the tank and when he is not lying, he is whirling all sort of direction. He's been like this for almost 6 days. He is almost 8 year old goldfish. I read another topic about whirling deseases and I am really sad to find out there is no treatment for this. But I am still hopeful for Bob and trying to find any possible way to treat him. If anyone knows how to treat him, please help. Here's my test results. * Ammonia Level (tank):1.0 ppm * Nitrite Level (tank): 2.0 ppm * Nitrate level (Tank):40 ppm * Ammonia Level (Tap): * Nitrite Level (Tap) * Nitrate level (Tap) * Ph Level, (Tank) (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) : 7.6 * Ph Level, (Tap) (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? TopFin 10 * What kind of water additives or conditioners? API tap water conditioner * Water temperature? * How often do you change the water and how much? Every other week 50% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 5 days ago 100% * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 10 gals 8 years * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 (Bob and Koi) * What do you feed your fish and how often? twice a day * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? no * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) We have seen this before when we had a heat wave last summer when tank water got really warm. Last time, it only lasted about 3 days and he recovered that once the temperature went down. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? no * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? He is lying at the bottom of the tank sideway most of the time and sometimes he spins and whirls all directions. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. none * You can really help us to identify with the concern more accurately if you post some pictures and a short video.
