I obtained these two goldfish for my son.. they are small and in a 10 gallon tank ( new) but am in process of setting up a 40 gallon .. I am more aware of what to do now then I was when I purchased these two .. it was a save the day move after my son won two at the church fair and his grandparents ( who were supposed to hold onto them) proceeded to put the bag o fish in the truck and left them there... I live in South Central Texas... that pretty much sums up what happened to those two.. My boy was heartbroken,, already gave them names an everything. So I did the typical dad thing and spent too much money on the wrong stuff to make him happy. Well I have heard clean every two weeks and I have heard once a month.. was planning on cleaning this week ( week 3) .. water is crystal clear.. aerator in pumping out bubbles like crazy.. pump is running well. ( a little too much current for their taste I think though.. work in progress) I noticed tonight there was a greyish lump on Attila's gill..when I was looking at past pictures to see if it was present then I also noticed white splotches along one side of his body. Both like to hang out under the fake plant but they also swim around and play around the bubbles. They still eat, just fed them. Can I get a little help with what to do next.. I'm going to check the water once the boy is fully asleep. I could guess at this but I would rather get the opinions of people who are in the know. Thanks for any help
