  1. Help please. One of my daughter’s orandas had a fungus infection a month ago. It went away with Maracyn Oxy. now the fish has this open wound that started with a missing scale from where the fungus was. It wasn’t bad. Until now. We do weekly water changes. It stays In. A 75 gallon with a oranda a black more and 2 common goldfish. This is the only fish to have any kind of fungus and issue. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0571hQtTGa96OnZCyjkvPRYdQ
  2. Should I be worried about this wound-looking spot on my Boesemani Rainbowfish? Background info: I bought some Celebes Rainbowfish and added them to my 60-gallon DT without quarantining them — lost 4 of the 5 Celebes and my last remaining Boesemani got sick (he’s over 7 years old now). Now that I found Aquarium Co-op’s videos, I know how to do a quarantine tank for the future. I just finished a course of Maracyn and ParaCleanse last week, primarily for this fish who I thought was a goner for sure. He’s feeling feisty again (he bit me several times while I was trying to plant new cryptocorynes tonight) and is back to eating well so I thought he was in the clear, until I noticed this weird spot on his side. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!
  3. Woke this am and noted something white hanging off the side of my 3 year old Tetra. He was OK yesterday, but noted he was swimming around a plant and not schooling with the other 4 tetras in the 75 gallon tank. Have 8 cory pandas, one pleco, one oto and one angel. Took video and when I came back downstairs the white thing had fallen off and now there is just a whitish area. The area doesn’t look swollen. Perform water changes every 7 to 10 days depending on my nitrates. Never allow my nitrates to reach over 40. Ammonia – 0 Nitrite – 0 Nitrates – 40 pH 7.0 Recently bought java moss, noted two bladder snails and had some bearded algae, but the bearded algae is gone now. Back-story on my tetra. My niece, who was a flight nurse, died January 2019 and this was her only fish left. This fish means a lot to me and any help would be appreciated.
  4. My Hero Severum had what I think is a wound on his side. Was not there yesterday. He is about 5 1/2 inches long and thick. Eats well and great color, appears very healthy. I'm thinking he might have scraped himself on an edge of lava rock which I have throughout the tank. Just hoping it's not disease, but I don't think so. Wanted to get additional opinions. I will add some extra salt at next water change, maybe help him heal ? Add stress coat ? Any input would be appreciated 👍 Thx GG
  5. Can anyone tell me what this could be? I haven’t seen this on any of my other fish.
  6. Ordered some dwarf chain loaches from Aquahuna don’t know if he got it on his way here or just recently should doing stress guard be good enough daily or add salt or the maracyn? TIA
  7. Hello all, I finally after many months of work got my planted community tank established. So I bought a school of neon tetras, I noticed one yesterday is missing his lower lip. He just has a hole where his mouth should be. I have an old 6.5 gal tank that I’ve turned into a hospital tank. I put 2 tablespoons of salt and placed him in there. So I was wondering, will he heal from this? Or should I just cut my losses and euthanize him?
  8. Hello there! I recently started watching and looking at fish to help with overall life issues and just something I wanted to put my focus on with everything that has gone down this year. So I decided to start small. I got myself a single gold fish, in a 40L (8.8ish galleon) tank. After about a month, I noticed I had a spike in Ammonia. Realized that my substrate was FAR too thick. No matter how much gravelling I did, it wasn't doing enough cleaning. I only realised this when I noticed my fish started acting strange. So after watching all the videos. I did a full clean. Put about 30% of the fish water in a separate container. Fully scrubbed the entire fish tank. Started fresh. Low amount of substrate, fresh water changes weekly (Ammonia returned to clear again). Then I noticed a white patch on my fish. So like the novice I am, I went to the fish store, and just bought all the meds surrounding "fungal", and other things like "EasyBalance" & "NitrateMinus" (both by Tetra) - side note, I already used a dechlorinator and waited a week before adding the goldfish. I started using them all to hopefully mitigate what was going on. I have a filter which uses carbon, so during this, I turned off the filter and left a air stone running to help with water circulation and just overall additional oxygen. However then the white patch opened up. So I thought ok, somethings obviously more serious here. So I started doing every 5 days a 50% water change. Using a medicine called "Melafix" by API Fish Care. I'm started to get worried that what I am currently doing will eventually lead to it's death. Even if its a small goldfish and most who I've talked to said it's not worth the cost... Is not what I am looking for. I want to save it's life at whatever cost. So any help would be much appreciated. It might be a super common thing that I'm just not searching for the right terms or something. - Oliver Image link, sorry it's not a full side on view, I was told it was best to give it a place to hide and rest whilst in the medical stage, and didn't want to disturb it for a photo!
