Sudden appearance of a Red Spot/Dot along with (White Cotton) on Goldfish Oranda's Wen


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Our Oranda we recently adopted from neighbors (3 weeks with us) was treated of Fungus (white cotton) in QT tank, however, it came back again today after a week being in the community tank.

Instead of moving her (again) to QT, we decided to treat the whole tank using API Fin and Body Cure, today was the first dose mixed with food.

The concerning part of all this is the red spot on her wen, I have uploaded a video as well as pictures of her. Any suggestions and advise is much appreciated.

Water Parameters:

0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite, 5 PPM Nitrate, PH 7.3

2 x 407 Fluval Cannister Filters

55G tank

 Water change of 35% every 5 days

Available Meds we have at home:

- API General Cure

- ICh-x

- API Fin and Body Cure

- Maracy 2 (yes we have backup)

- PraziPro



White cotton went out by itself in this video

I googled this same question because I hadn’t found this Forum yet.  My Oranda seems to have had the same thing yours is showing from the pictures.  Mine is fine now.  I did nothing.  From what I read at Goldfish Keepers is that it is a common occurrence thought to be related to the growth of the wen.  Keep reading up on it though.  There are pictures and videos of other Orandas that occasionally have that discharge.
