Re: flaky white stuff and red around anus area?? #1
Hi again, sorry I haven’t updated you sooner but unfortunately my fish died :( I did everything i could to help him but nothing would work. I still don’t know what it was the caused it. It could have been that he had eaten some gravel or it could have been something else. Thank you so much for all of your help anyway. Happy new year!

Thank you I will try that next if the salts don’t work. I am adding them in little by little I’ve the next few days and I am now treating for internal bacteria because one of the images of what to look for before treating a fish with that medication looks similar to what mine has. Will keep you updated! Thanks so much.

Update:
It is looking worse again now. I have ordered aquarium salts and they’re arriving tomorrow. I will also do another full water change then and re-medicate with a different medication to see if that may work.
I would be so grateful if you had any other suggestions.
Thanks again :)

Re: flaky white stuff and red around anus area?? #4
Hi again,
Cleaned out the whole tank and filter etc. yesterday as well as repeating the medication but it doesn’t seem to look much better. Might you be able to recommend a product I could order online? Doesn’t seem to be bothering him much but it does look quite sore and he was a little quieter today. I could try aquarium salts? Or even a bath in Epsom salts? Although I’ve never done either before so would be a bit weary and unsure where to start with it - but if it will help him I’m very happy to give it a go!
Thank you so much for your help so far.
Merry Christmas!!

Re: flaky white stuff and red around anus area?? #5
Thank you so much. That actually makes complete sense I often see him nibble on gravel. I have now moved him into a tank with large pebbles instead of gravel so hopefully he won’t be doing that again! Still hard to decide whether it looks any better or not but he has only been in the medicated water since Saturday evening. Do you think he will be able to heal? He is now passing the peas fairly easily. Shall I continue to feed him these or go back to either pellets or flakes? Is there anything else I could do to ensure he recovers? Thank you so so much for your help I will keep you updated. :)

Re: flaky white stuff and red around anus area?? #7
Hi I’m new to this website and so I wasn’t really sure where to write a new message sorry!
I’m really concerned about by coldwater black moor goldfish. I’ve had him for about 18months and he has always been healthy. However, in the last week or so he has developed a red sore around his anus. I cannot find anything online about it. I starved him for a day and he has had a couple of days of peas but it is also very like an open wound as well as swelling. I am very fond of this fish and am really worried about him.
I moved him out of his 60ltr tank into a completely clean 18ltr tank yesterday in order to treat him separately. So far I have treated him with some stuff that is supposed to fight both bacterial and fungal infections but no improvements yet. He seems more lively today and normal in himself but he does have a very sore bottom!! He is still pooing although it takes a very long time to come out.
I would be super grateful for any advice anyone may have! :)
I have uploaded a photo but I’m afraid it’s really blurry but atleast you have an idea of the size and colour of it!
