Re: So many eggs #1
Thank you for your question sorry it's been a while this should answer all your questions.

Link removed by mods: FK does not recommend this practice due to the possibility of injury to fish.

Re: Dropsy symptom #2
Within the new year hopefully the tank would have to be second hand though as I want no less than 500litres and no more fish they have a lot of growing to do by the sounds of it. I should have done more research; I'm a little naive.

Here is the link:

I'm not very good at math so I might be wrong and these guys maybe right?

Re: Dropsy symptom #4
I know I'm silly the only filtration I've got is the one it came with; an internal juwel filter with replacable sponges, I havn't been doing water changes since the treatment test results today read: ammonia 0.5 nitrite 0 nitrates 0 :/

Don't know where the nitrates have disappeared to must have done the test wrong.

I shall give you a link to a site that I reffered to as to how many goldfish I could have; had no idea before I widened my search to the internet about the actual mass needed for each fish.

I planning to buy a massive tank when I move out and use my current one as my quaruntine one, but parents say no to a bigger tank so it's wait until I move out or rehome them. :(

Re: Dropsy symptom #6
Unfortunately he is with the main group he's to large to put into the size of quaruntine tanks that I own at the moment and it would stress him.

As you can see he is still lively and responding to me still.

Dropsy symptom #7
Once again I call upon you brilliant experts for advice.

My 7year old veiltail has started to show unusual symptoms brought on by no aparant reason. They included pop eye and dropsy. Possible bacterial problem.

Ammonia 0.2 nitrite 0.5 nitrate 0.5 ph 8.0

Treatment is as follows his cheeks started to swell first I knew something was wrong so I went for Tetra contraspot. Later his eyes started to pop; immediately carbon sponge went back in water change next day applied general tonic. Pop eye started to dissipate but as it did dropsy took hold. I knew it wasn't good I have trace aquarium salt in the water.

Tomorrow is planned water change and additional dose 7th day epsom salt bathes and I'm putting a drop of general tonic to dilute into the water in a small pot of bloodworm, he's being fed on this others are still normal diet.

Current condition lively wants food whan I'm about but as soon as excitement dies down he sulks at bottom of tank so I know it's effecting him. Full pinecone apperance has begun I'll post a picture shortly.

Was wondering if anyone had any extra advice better meds experiance with this sort of problem thanks.

Re: Bare bottom? #9
I have heard stories like this before, don't panic they won't swallow them but if they got it in there they can get it out; sometimes they thrash about with their mouth extended to get it out.
I recommend gravel either smaller than their mouthes or a lot larger; you can buy gravel which are recommended for goldfish; post a pic when your finished ;).

Re: Clear worms, with black heads in tank #10
Noodle I agree with you I also have this problem.

They are generally no harm to the fish and often result as dinner; the ones I had in my tank this year about a month ago sound just like what your describing. It turned out to be larvae from these small black mosquito looking fly things as I caught one red-handed flying out of the vents.
