Another Eye Blister


Black

Yes that's what it reminds me of, except the skin is smooth. Before, I have seen wrinkled skin on him after a blister has gone/popped.

I stopped after bath no.7 as I went away over the weekend. Shall I leave it for now?

 

 

Yeah lets let him be for now hun :)

Thank you. Yes, his eyes seem to be growing again! :doh11: I hope they don't fall off, he's been very wriggly lately and they wobble quite a bit :yikes

I've been suffering badly with my health this week, and as a result, I have not been wiping down the tank floor. Not good enough, I know :(

As a result, poor Googs' tail is looking like this:

Sorry for the blur, I couldn't focus and hold him at the time.

Everything else is looking good though except this. I've just wiped everything down thoroughly and thinking of doing a big WC today, a few days early, if I can. I have ordered Furan from the U.S. so that might take a while to arrive but at least it's on its way.

Shall I just treat him with clean water or do I need to go back to doing silver baths?

You know the more I think about this ... The more I think about your fish and my old Shunkin it sounds like its Hives..... Looks kinda like it too.... I get Hives when I eat to much Dairy and Dust... So Im wondering if your little guy has the same issue....

I mainly feed him SG and shrimp pellets which were from Goldfish Connection.

Maybe the bag is too old now, should I change his diet?

Also, Koko, you really shouldn't be eating dust :P

Hmm, there is quite a lot of movement in the tank already. My filter does 1800lph, but I am thinking of adding a sponge filter as well for back up as I'm going away again soon. Maybe that will help :idont

So you don't think it's just sores from bottom sitting?

Do you think he's in pain? :(

I think its from sitting and touching the brown stuff or slim that gets on the tank..... I think some fish are more sensitive to this.... Remember they excrete there slim coat all the time and if the tank has gotten build up of it it irritates them....

 

I dont think hes in pain pain just un comfy right now... I know when I get mine it hurts but it does go away....

 

I would say, lets keep the tank clean (the glass and water) Give him silver baths again.... and lets see if that will help him... Its not going to hurt him to use Silver alot, I use it alot my self and there isnt anything wrong with me and Im not Blue :rofl

Hope you and Googs feel better.

Thank you Dawn :)

Koko, it's the shrimp pellets that might have got old now, but I'm not sure because there isn't an expiry date. I bought it from Goldfish Connection just before it shut down...

I think this morning was bath no.5. The larger red sores/spots have gone :) Just need to work on the whitish ones and the red veins

Still waiting on the Furan-2, might be a while yet.

It's midnight now, but will post a pic tomorrow to show progress
