Linsay have you thought about taking him to a vet to have a look at, give your local one a ring and see if they do fish too? I did just that many years ago when one of my fish came out with what looked like a water bubble on its side, it wouldn't hurt as I should have thought the spot to have cleared up by now Out of curiosity you do use the water conditioner in the salt water too before putting jerremy in it
The thought has crossed my mind, as we are friends with our vet. But he mainly practices on large animals-such as horses. I might give him a call to ask his advice, as a consultation is £15.00+vat as soon as you walk in and if he doesn't know any more than you Goldy, it's a wasted trip:(
Yes, i always use tap conditioner- at the mo i have changed from Aquarian to Tetra(looks like washing up liquid)
He's really not looking good, i read the earlier post about White spot-the link you gave, and it mentioned the parasite bursting out of the fish, i am wondering if Jeremy has white spot, as i have also noticed twice now a scale sticking up on the White Oranda and do you remember me telling you i thought he had caught himself on the bridge?? The White Oranda has a tiny tiny tiny spec in his tail at the mo, will try to take a pic Not having much luck with these fish :(
Linsay you say the spot it only on his gill, it keeps popping and leaves a red sore, then it doesn't sound like white spot as that covers the fish. I will see what I can find out for you concerning ulsers. Also tetra aquasafe is the best water conditioner.
