bettaballistic Posted December 29, 2022 Share Posted December 29, 2022 (edited) I have two baby fancy goldfish in a 20 gallon. And I have been treating them for flukes for the last 2 weeks, they were piping, flashing, and generally moving very jerkly. I'm doing 5ml prazipro every 7 days with a water change on day 7. I'm leaning towards doing the 3rd week but I'm not sure how much of this behavior is normal. They are now moving normally and not flashing. One of them occasionally goes up to the surface, but only in the spot that I feed them so I think hes begging. But both of them are very frequently glass surfing, and CONSTANTLY opening and closing their mouths. There’s no ammonia, nitrite and nitrates is very little. I was using an air stone, but it really stresses them out so I only turn it on for short periods during the day. Everything I find online says that moving their mouth frequently is a sign of low oxygen. Is that always true? Could this be damage from the flukes? Maybe the glass surfing is a stress response to the medication? I'm not sure what to do, any advice appreciated!
