  1. In a normal fin tail rot or injury as long as the rot doesn't go completely to the body of the fish, the fish can regrow the fin. My comet used to tear his tail quite a bit. Never was sure how he did it but I assume it was on the filter intake or something because I didn't have any decoration in his tank and he was in the tank alone so I know it wasn't from another fish.
  2. Where did you have the sick fish before you put him back in the pond? I was thinking you said you didn't have a quarantine tank? I have lost a couple fish in my time as a goldfish owner and both times my fish ate up until the day before they died so I'm not sure that is a sure fire way of telling a fish is ok. Ripped fins will take awhile to heal. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    I have some seachem stability that I use when I do a water change and filter sponge clean too. Not sure it helps but figure it doesn't hurt. I just added Prime every coupe of days and did partial water changes twice a week. Best I remember I was back with 0's ammonia etc. in about six weeks.

    No, but could have been some other weird thing going on that caused it. I just remember it totally killed it and I had to start over. Was a pain!

    I used the general cure one time and it killed all my good bacteria or I had some other strange happening that coincided with the medication.

    My Ph usually stays around 7.5-8. I have never checked my GH. I have tried both medications and feel that they do work. Can't say for sure. I used the Kanoplex for fin rot but was using aquarium salt too so hard to say what made the difference. I have used metroplex for what I thought was a bacteria infection. Fish got better but I could have diagnosed him wrong. I do know that neither messes with your good bacteria and that is important!

    Perhaps Kanoplex and metroplex? I keep both of these in my cabinets. Neither will harm your good bacteria and they are made by Seachem.

    Hello people

    Good to hear from you! I have wondered how you and your goldfish were doing. I have a ranchu that suddenly developed a swim bladder issue about 3 month ago. He lays on his side at the bottom of my tank. I removed all my gravel to help him get to his food better. He gets excited when I come to the tank and eats. Just sad to see him struggle to get turned the correct way to eat. I'm hoping (probably in vain) that he might outgrow it. I still have my oranda in the tank with him too and I swear she looks after him. She will scoot the food closer to him and lets him get first bite before she does. Anyways great to hear from you, your fish look happy.
  10. Understand completely!
  11. I think you said you have some goldfish babies too ? Maybe they could be put in it??

    Help! Kevin has bloat

    Epsom salts would be fine for sure. I'm not a fan for erythromycin unless really needed and you may need it because I remember after one dose it killed all of my good bacteria and I went back to square one with establishing it and I think that puts more stress on the fish. However, I am not a good source for illness. I mainly speak from past personal experiences.
