Jennifer, Your remedies should arrive today; if not today, for sure tomorrow
I sent you the mean green, the garlic, the health tonic and gel food, along with a bottle of Oop Boost. I also included the aloe. This fish is getting the works
I would start with the garlic treatment combined with the health tonic; their a natural together. Use 1/2…[Read more]
If that whitish coating came off the fish with a touch, it was fungus; bad bugs indeed, but considering the issue with the prefilter, it could have been ammonia poisoning. Friendly bugs that perform the nitrogen cycle live in our pumps and filters, and one goes down or is removed, there could be a spike in the cycle. Most spikes occur after a…[Read more]
Here’s a few questions that will help us determine what it is, or isn’t. Scoop the fish up in a container, and examine the growth
When you press on it, is it firm or squishy?
From the photo, the tumor looks to be under tissue that looks normal; is this right?
When did you first notice? and in that time, has it grown?
Hi Jennifer, that is one sensitive fish, meaning it hasn’t fully recovered. Your parameters look fantastic, and believe it or not, that in itself is helpful
Consider changing the way you change water; instead of removing 5% and then replacing, like you would with normal fish; replace one pitcher at a time. Scoop a pitcherful out of the tank;…[Read more]
Glad to hear it.
I’m not really sure what you mean. Per treatment you would use one ounce of the remedy for every 10 gallons of water in your tank. For example, if your tank holds 30 gallons, you would use 3 ounces for one day’s treatment. If you’re going for the full three day treatment, you would use 3 ounces per day for three days straight.…[Read more]
Thanks so much for the kudos; much appreciated. We don’t always get people so enthusiastic, and willing to do something a little different. I love the health tonic. I customize the ingredients for what is ailing the fish. In this case; lemon grass, aloe, and dandelion will make up the remedy
KH should be at 120 to 140 ppm, so if levels are at…[Read more]
One of these pumps would get the job done
You would need two of these pumps
Every pond pump needs a…[Read more]
Hard water is a term used for water with minerals. These minerals give water value that fish must have in order to maintain good health
GH (general hardness) is made up mostly of magnesium and calcium. The comfort zone is 200 to 400 ppm, so you’re in great shape
KH (carbonate mineral) gives water the ability to support life. This is the…[Read more]
Great. I have a buy two get one free going right now, so I’m going to slip an Oop Boost into your package. This treatment oxygenates water, helping to create an environment that bad bugs and parasites can’t tolerate. The increased oxygen levels will also help boost immunity of the fish
If you haven’t already, consider investing in a real pond…[Read more]
Goldfish parasites, ammonia and nitrite poisoning
Hi Tammy, Thanks so very much for joining us on the site; much appreciated
Your little fish has been through the wringer, but it obviously has a strong will to survive, and that’s what it going to take, along with having a passionate goldfish keeper. Thankfully, it has that as well
I can…[Read more]
Salt bathes are risky, and I’m wondering if they’re necessary in this case. If you were able to squeeze the lump during a salt bath, you would probably be able to squeeze the lump during a garlic or H202 bath. The substances in the bath would be used to fight external infection after the squeeze. Garlic would also relax her during the…[Read more]
