  1. Hi from Dana Point, CA. I have two goldfish. - 18 years old. They are quite the family members. I came across this site while researching diseases. Over the last couple of weeks, I have been dealing with as well as treating a sick goldfish. The disease literally came on so fast. Within a few hours - it appeared his mouth was rotting away. I had the medication on hand and treated him with two rounds of Kanaplex and Furan 2. The treatment seemed to work, his mouth healed. However, yesterday morning he was staying at the bottom of the tank. And, it looked like he was developing a fungus again on his mouth. I started him on Erythromycin and just gave him his second dose this morning. I am happy to say that he is doing better. I plan to treat him with Ich X when it arrives. I hope that I am doing the right treatment. He is in a 55 gallon tank. I checked the water parameters before I treated him -which all checked out. I feel defeated. Thank you for this site and the wonderful information provided. LuLu
  2. I'm in need of some help here. My betta is probably 2.5 years old now. He lives in a 10G with two nerites and three amanos. I've noticed the last month he started to be lazier than normal, but still excited to eat and see me. Then in the last week I caught the amanos eating his tail. They've since been separated. He is now going down hill. His fins are messed up, this morning he has gone more pale, and just stopped eating this morning. His gills are breathing fairly heavy. No pineconeing that I have noticed. Plenty of almond leaves and places for him to rest, but I don't know what to do next. He won't eat blood worms or pellets today. What would aquarium salt do? Or other meds? Here are some pictures and my parameters: 7.8 pH 10-20 ppm Nitrates (prior to 40% WC) 0 ppm Nitrite= 0 ppm Ammonia 360 TDS (10GH) 6KH 78 F
  3. So I have a Balloon Molly that seems to be aging. I've had her a year, and she was a fully grown adult fish when I got her. In the last 3 months, she has gradually aged, for lack of a better term. She doesn't swim as fast, has lost some color, and gets out-competed for food, and sometimes picked on and pushed away. When she does grab a bite, she isn't nearly as voracious as she was. She has lost quite a bit of size. Being it happened gradually, I didn't really notice, but now looking at older pictures, it is quite evident. Short of a "retirement" tank, is there anything I can do to help? I have been trying to load up brine shrimp/etc in a pipette, and shoot it to her specifically. It works, but it also causes the other 60-70 Mollies and Platys to dart right towards her in a feeding frenzy. I thought about putting her in a breeding box while feeding, but worry that might stress her even more. I just want her to be more comfortable and stress-free, but don't know what to do, if anything. All advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
