Dear Fishblr, Please halllllpppppp! This is my bebe Garrus! This weird wart/sore thing appeared on him seemingly overnight! Wtf is it?! He also has one scale on his side that seems to be sticking out a little. Otherwise he is acting like his usual self. He stares lives in a 55g (I know it’s a bit too small, I’m upgrading when I can get the money) with two other pretty big goldies and they all get along. My water quality is good, with no amonia or nitrites and low nitrates. Please help! I’ve never seen anything like this!

Reblogging again and tagging all the fish people I follow because I’m scurred for my baby! I’ve got him in a 40g tub with an air stone now and there are several scales that he apparently lost at the bottom of the tub. No one on Koko’s seems to know what’s up, which is always my go to place so I don’t know what to do! :((((
fish-n-stuff goldfishe goldfishdoctor goldfishgal goodbetterbetta
any of you guys have any clue what could be up with my bebe?
Thank you!!!

It looks to me like some sort of ulcer. I don’t have first-hand experience with them so what I could tell you, you could probably get from a google search tbh. I’m also sort of high on cold meds at the moment making me doubly nervous about suggesting a course of action. Sorry >.>. 
Ulcers can be caused by many things, usually bacterial infection or secondary bacterial infection after injury, poor water quality, or parasites. Viruses as well but those are rarer.
But yeah, that’s my 2 cents! I hope you can get him feeling better soon! It’s always so rough to see something like this on your fishy and feeling so helpless. 

Def cysts, it’s called cauliflower sometimes.

Yeah, lymphocystis came to mind too, but I wasn’t quick to suggest something I didn’t think was terribly common (?) in fancy aquarium goldfish and not nearly as treatable as ulcerations. I wouldn’t rule it out though. Like I said, I don’t really have first-hand experience with lesions like this. ^^;

Good luck :( poor baby

Oh, and I have one endler (one of the younger ones that was an extra in the shipping bag) that is showing a black blotch on their tail. I’m honestly not sure if its a male that is starting to show coloration, or a female that has some uncharacteristic coloration, and I suppose I’ll just have to wait and see… but N-strain Endler females aren’t supposed to have any color, so I’m hoping its a mail and not a weird one that’s been contaminated with p.reticulata genetics.

I doubt it is though, I bought from a reputable breeder.

So, 20 gallon update. The new Sunset hygro is on the far left, back, the new ludwigia is in the right foreground. Hopefully once the hygro grows in it will show more red.I think I still want to get some more floaters (dwarf water lettuce preferably, I’ve got some duckweed but it honestly isn’t multiplying that fast, I think the cabomba is stealing all the nutrients,) maybe some dwarf hairgrass for the righthand side, and maybe something with broad leaves (lotus?) to add a little contrast amongst all the bunchy plants.I *want* this tank to look overgrown.Last picture is to show the comparison of the cabomba growth since *last* time I took a picture of it. LIKE WHAT THE HELL?! That cabomba is why I haven’t seen any algae in this tank. None.(probably going to order my rabbit snails within the next month here, I just need to make sure my finances are in a good place to order like four. I want to get it in before winter hits though)

ALL PLANTS VERBALLY CLAIMED

low-techtank:

Every plant has been claimed! I can’t believe it. Thank you so much everyone.

If a payment falls through, or anything along those lines, I will re-post what becomes re-available. I doubt this will happen though.

A note to all purchasers: Remember, these plants were shipped to me, placed in a holding tank and shipped out to you. They may not be in perfect shape, but DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY. 

  • If it’s a stem plant, remove all of the dead material. As long as you have a piece of alive stem (which I’m sure you will have way more alive than this) the plant should produce new growth.
  • If it’s a rhizome plant, and the rhizome is alive, the plant will be fine.
  • If it’s a crypt, the base “node” is all that needs to be intact for the plant to regrow. Remember, when entering new environments, crypts can under go a process that is called “crypt melt.” The plant may completely die off, all except the “node.” The crypt will ALMOST ALWAYS grow back completely healthy.

Thank you again for the overwhelming support! Once all of the payments come through, I will announce the final donation total. I can already tell that we made way more than I expected. 

WOOOOO!!!!!!!!

what-the-fiish:

fish-n-stuff:

what-the-fiish:

Repost cause there were dry water stains lol

40 gallon update :D

Damn. It’s just a huge mess. I LOVE IT.

If anyone is planning on getting floaty plants i highly recommend frogbit! It’s much less annoying to deal with than duckweed and much easier to grow than dwarf water lettuce.

I like jungle scapes.

Gosh you need to teach me your secret. I really want to get to this point with a couple of my tanks, but the goldfish destroy anything that isn’t a crypt or anubias, and I’m still working on populating my 20 gallon with plants…

What is the broad-leafed reddish plant in the second picture below the cabomba?

fish-n-stuff

below my pink cabomba? the reddish bunch is two plants actually. The left most is ludwigia repens and the right most is nyphaea zenkeri (i think that’s how its spelled) or red tiger lotus :D

rebloggin my own post to reply to someone cause why not

well I’ll just run through my plant regiment lol

I have a layer of eco complete under my sand as you can tell by the black dots lol.

my lighting system is high light. It’s very high light and I’ve also added on three lamps to help cause there’s so much over shadowing. Only use high light if you can support the growth rate with ferts, co2, and waste or else the plants will just melt from literally outgrowing itself. I also run my lights for 14 hours a day.

I use flourish root tabs. There’s one every 4 square inches. They’ve probably dissolved 60% already but I’m not going to refresh them. They were only there to upstart the growth.

I do a 15% water change every 4-5 days. The water change somehow helps plants grow. No one knows why LOL. Some people say co2 rich tap water, some say the tap contains phosphates and irons and other macro/micro nutrients. idk. Water changes. I DONT CLEAN THE TOP OF MY GRAVEL. I let the decaying leaves and dead leaves/crap stay there for the plants as nutrients. I only vacuum them up if there’s too much of it.

I dose liquid fertilizer and liquid co2 everyday. I don’t have a co2 injector. Might find it hilarious but I don’t want to buy one LOL. if any of you have noticed I spend too much money already… I dose flourish comprehensive everyday 1/4 of what they recommend for the week. I ALSO dose leaf zone 1/4 of weekly reccomendation for extra iron and phosphates. This is the key. Kind of. Dosing fractional/small amounts of liquid fertilizer everyday vs doing it by the week like some people do. I dose liquid co2 2X daily reccomendation everyday. The co2 doesnt hurt the fish lol. This is probably where most of my growth is from.

Well there you go. You guys know my whole entire plant agenda lol.

yeah, the lotus is what I was talking about. I should find one, it’d be a nice counterpoint to all the bushy plants i have in my 20.

But this is excellent information and I appreciate it - I may try some of it in my 20 gallon, since that’s the tank I really want to overgrow (it has livebearers in it and I want to give the fry plenty of hiding places,) though I’m nervous to add even more nutrients to my goldfish tank… the plants can’t keep up with the nutrients as it is, so I’ve got a bit of an algae problem in that tank.

Fast growing plants that would use up the nutrients just cannot survive the freaking sea cows.

ALL THAT SAID, picking up the ferts & liquid CO2 seems like a pretty easy starting off point.

So the advantage of white sand in a tank is that its really easy to see where debris is on the bottom. The disadvantage is ITS REALLY EASY TO SEE WHERE DEBRIS IS ON THE BOTTOm, and while logically I know I just changed the water a couple of days ago, there’s little bits of endler poop all over the bottom and its driving me crazy

I think I’m going to do a small water change just so I can suck all the little boogers out.

(No fry yet. I’m waiting on tenterhooks here for some of the females to give birth, it should be any day now.)

suzykabloozy:

I’m bored at work and realizing that I know next to nothing about keeping fish other than bettas, so if you have good resources on the following I would be very interested to read them! Put them in my SUBMIT box!

  • goldfish (i’m most interested in fancy varieties)
  • keeping goldfish/koi ponds (what do you even do in winter i am so curious)
  • jellyfish (i know this is really not possible for the average aquarist but i’m still curious)
  • puffers
  • live plants
  • angelfish
  • idk if you have any interesting care sheets send them to me!!!
