I can only agree with what others have said, it looks like a bad case of ich :(

Salt is going to be your best friend. Please follow Helen's advice. You'll want to raise salt levels to .3% - this is 3 tsp per gallon. Do daily water changes (or as frequently as you are able) and replace the salt you took out. So if you do a 50% water change, replace 50% of the salt etc.

Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this treatment plan or how to carry out any part of it :) I hope your fish will pull through!

ok last night I did nothing it was too late and I was too tired due to the medicine I got, so today I am about to do water change 100% my salt is aquarium salt it is big rocks does the measurement of 1 tsp per gallon still apply? or shall I do another type of measurement? I got rounded measuring spoons .... I can not thank you enough guys...!!!! THANK YOU...!!!!

Thank you very much, I am better I have Gestational Diabetes, got diagnosed 3 days ago and was told my sugar levels were high but not how high and so I started to do the diet figures my sugars went too low and I got a headache since, was pretty bad, had to go to the ER, but all and all I am just praying everything goes fine with all my babies... so here is my game plan, please tell me if I should change something.

WATER TEMPERATURE: 80-82 F.

Day 1. (today)

9:30 am : 100% water change

10:00 am: 1 tsp of aquarium salt per gallon so I added 19 tbs as the tank is not filled to the top

*will do*

8:00 pm: 100% water change

9:00 pm: 1 tsp of salt per gallon

10:00 pm: 1 tsp of salt per gallon

(go to sleep)

Day 2 (tomorrow)

8:00 am: 100% water change

9:00 am: 1 tsp of salt per gallon

10:00 am: 1 tsp of salt per gallon

10:30 am: 1 tsp of salt per gallon

(end of the 0.3% salt treatment added at 12 hour intervals)?

For how long shall I do this? what do I need to do next? and once again thank you for all your help.!!!!! THANK YOU...!!! :goldfish:

So, given how bad it is, I would honestly add all the salt at once. You can do 1 tbsp per gallon (this is equal to 3 tsp), no need to stagger adding the salt each time, just put it all in. 1tbsp per gallon will put you at the target amount right away (.3%)

You'll also probably want to get some regular salt, aquarium salt is expensive and you're going to be using a lot. Get salt from the grocery store (a big box) that has no additives or anti caking agents. I use Morton's canning and pickling salt. Dissolve the salt in some tank water before you add it to the tank.

Then, a daily water change and add back in the salt you took out.

You don't have to wipe it every time but do run the vac across the bottom at every water change :)

I am sorry to let you know that the fish died, now that it is dead I see how severe the ich was, basically had no fins and when I looked at it under bright light I could see all the red spots all over his body where the ich was in the fish, even in the eyes... it was horrible to watch but now I know how bad it can get; and how fast I must act if ever comes up... now I get what ECR breeder told on her page, and it is true with Kira-Lee i have hd no problems at all, she is healthy and I had not to deal with such things as parasites only her bladder problem but when I got her, the breeder told me what to feed and how to feed and it had worked so far so I will stick with it for a long time... even if I have more goldfishes to come... . I put hot boiling water in the tank and left it for 1 hour almost I hope I killed most of the parasites, I am out of salt and I put what I had in the tank, wondering if I should let the tank dry for a couple of days and see what happens.... husband does not want more fish, but I just can't leave it alone, I would give it time and see what happens but I do want a goldfish aquarium to enjoy...

I'm very sorry for your loss :( :(

In terms of disinfecting the tank, bleach, rinse well, and allow to fully dry. Any equipment used should also be bleached.
