Goldfish Grooming - Not!

Recommended Posts

My pearlscale died yesterday :( but the ranchu is doing good. I thought for sure she wouldn't make it, but her scales seem to be healing and she's okay! Woo! Hoo! I applied the last treatment today so after 24 hrs I'm doing a water change and assuming I'm done. I'll do a thorough inspection in the morning. Shakaho, since she's been in formalin for 6 days I'm assuming I'm done with all treatments? Or do you recommend I go back to the prazi quarantine procedures? Or are they sufficiently de-wormed? They pooped long, white poops the first few days on formalin so I'm suspecting internal worms. Their poop is normal now. Let me know. Thanks!

Let's just keep her in very clean water for a while to see if any symptoms reappear.  You might try Koko's favorite treatment, colloidal silver,

I started clean, fresh water on Tuesday. Today it appears the symptoms are slowly returning. Bottom sitting and slight haze to the skin. The poo is normal color now, but it has a lot of air bubbles in it. I feed Omega One sinking pellets. I've been doing 100% water changes daily. I did almost 3 full cycles (9 days) of Quick Cure and the results were great. It seemed like there was a 100% recovery. I'm not sure if I should do another treatment cycle? I'm so bummed!

Okay Koko, I got the same name brand in your link, but it's 250ppm. What do you prescribe and how do I dose? Thanks so much!

Just to clarify: I've been doing daily 100% WC because the water gets so filthy. The QT isn't cycled. How would I dose with 100% changes?

Thanks Fish Tank, it's been a long road! Everything is going good so far. My 75 has been dry and empty for weeks. As soon as the silver treatment is over, I'll set it up again. I'll need to buy some new fish, so I'll be back to a QT with prazi. My Ranchu is a bully so I'll need to make sure I pair it up properly.

Hi Koko! I wasn't notified of your last post so my apologies! Everything is going very well. Healthy fish and lots of water changes. I'm preparing to finally put my 75 gal back together and get my little guy out of QT. I have another Ranchu in QT so I can add them to the new tank together. I'll take a break after that, as I'm looking forward to not having to do water changes every day! I'll start a new thread when I start my tank decoration.Im hoping my media survived all this as I've been adding ammonia to keep them alive. We'll see! Thanks again for your help. Colloidal Silver is great stuff!
