  1. If the pH is roughly the same I wouldn't worry to much about the water softener I would just add some crushed coral to help buffer your water you could get a large tote or bin put your water in that and add a heater to get the temp you want before water changes
  2. Start at 1 table spoon for 5 gallons and gradually increase over a couple of days to 1 table spoon for 3gallons remember to only add the the amount of salt back in that you take out so if you do a 3 gallon water change only put 1 table spoon back
  3. Prime also detoxify ammonia and nitirtes it's sulfainate based that why it has the smell over production of the slim coat is a symptom of things such as high levels of chlorine or other chemical contamination of your water that's what's killing your fish I would double dose prime and add some maracyn to cover against any secondary bacterial infection caused by the stress I would test your water for chlorine and ammonia
  4. My goldfish just turned 13 year and he's still going strong
  5. I would add a small amount of aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 3 gallons and monitor for it should heal over time
  6. I think it could be your local tap water that causing the problem the flaking your seeing could be the over production of slime I would test your tap water do you use a dechlorinator like prime

    Sick Guppy?

    I would Qarantine and fast for a couple of days and do some more epsom salt baths 1 table spoon for 2 gallons no more then 15 minutes 2-3 times a day if there's no improvement after that I would treat with paracleanse just incase it's parasites with the white stringy pooh
  8. That looks like the start of fin rot I would increase water changes and treat with maracyn
  9. Can you take a picture it will help with diagnosis
