Fungus infection

Recommended Posts

My oranda has cotton like patches on him. Ive done a 90% water change today and dosed tank with medifix. I've just received pimafix which I've rubbed on him with a q tip whilst he was having a salt bath. 

Pic of him yesterday

Also my pearlscale died yesterday. She had a tiny bit on her tail, so I wasn't worried about her at all. This shocked and upset me alot. I'm scared of losing my fantails and oranda

Yes sorry, we had tornadoes go through this area last night and I have family in town, so I’ve been a little preoccupied! 😝

 

When I get back in this evening I will take a look, promise!

We are okay, the damage is mostly a few miles north and east.

OP,  can you give us a detailed history of these fish?  Has anything new come into your tank in the last six months? More detail with the forms is better.

I’m sorry to hear that!  If there are any other fish in the tank or who have shared that equipment please do give us the rest of the information, as there could be a nasty pathogen at play that could risk the rest of your stock.

UpThanks guys. Yes I will try to answer all.

I have just 2 baby fantails.

Am 0, Nitri, 0, Nitra, 2.5, pH 7.6

I tested all tap water 4-5 weeks ago

Am 0, Nitri, 0, Nitra 0, ph ?

190 UK litres, it's about 50 US gallons

Master test kit API drops

Water temp 76

It's been running about 2 months

Internal filter juwel 3.0

90% w/c on Monday. I do weekly w/c 90%, also midweek 30%. 

I use Seachum prime.

My fish eat hikari pellets, fish flakes, Tetra pellets. I blitz veg( broccoli, lettuce, cabbage) with dandy rapashy gel food.

I put medifix and pimafix in. Also ich treatment, last few days.

No unusual behaviour with my 2 remaining fish.

I will keep this tank as a fantail only tank. Also I'm thinking they seem to be fantail and goldfish mix. I don't believe they are true fantails as they move too quickly and their body shapes are longer and not as compact. My local petshop where they came from, had them listed as orandas but they are not. They look like regular gold fish with a fantail.

The other 2 are doing fine. Water parameters are much more stable. I've added 50g of crushed coral to the filter.

New addition to the family, 2 Chihuahua's....

The crushed coral has worked perfectly. It's taken 2 days for the pH to rise from 6.6 to 7.6. Much better than adding buffers and other chemicals, as it doesn't last and isn't steady.

Great advice!

Thats what I had to do too.

That is great news. Now test your ph every week to make sure it's stable 😜
