My fish is blind, but I’m not sure how to feed him
the dog photo is not mine
Leo lives in 20 gallon tank with 4 glofish an some cleaner fish. It is my fish
Leo’s info: glofish one year old 20 gallon tank with 4 other glofish
What types of fish can live with a goldfish?
My goldfish have laid eggs and I don’t know what to do. I have separated the adults from the eggs. What else do I need to do?
Hey there, I am 17 years old and I adore animals. I live with just myself and my mother and I currently have 4 cats (soon to be more probably) 2 gerbils, and 2 goldfish. I look after my pets very well and make sure they are happy and healthy.
I have always loved birds and have always pictured myself having a parrot (such as a macaw) I have owned finches, budgies, and other small pasts in the distant past, but I haven’t had any for a while thus I will not get a large bird like a macaw. One that has really caught my eye is a Sun Conure. I think they are beautiful birds and would love to have one as a pet to commit my time to.
I will mention in a list-styled fashion what my concerns are:
-I am 17, very young and my life is just beginning. I don’t travel much but will likely travel every so often. Not to mention I may be starting university soon.
-I have 4 cats, obviously cats and birds don’t mix. My plan would mainly be to just make sure they are seperated at all times in the house but I am still concerned, should I be?
-Gerbils natural predators are birds, as far as I know, Sun Conures do not eat rodents, however they would still terrify my gerbils. Gerbils only live until around 4 years old so maybe once they are gone I will get my bird.
Besides what I listed, I cannot think of any reasons as to why I would not be ready. I will always commit my free time to looking after it and spending time with it, I will be sure it’s healthy, regular check ups, and so forth. Would like to hear some feed back. Am I ready?
My goldfish has black smudge like markings appearing all over him. No clue why or what to do to help him, due to being brand new fish owner. What could be the problem and how can i help him?
Hi. My name is peiton. I have 4 goldfish and I noticed one of them has white spots all on it (his name is speedy) and I looked it up and found out it is ich. All the solutions I have looked at have said I need to raise my water temp and add aquarium salt, but I don’t have a heater. All I have in the tank is gravel. Any recommendations of how I can keep speedy alive, and not lose the other three fish?
Hi all i really hope you could help me with this issue with my goldfish
I’ve had my pet goldfish for almost 3 years now. it is the only goldfish (fantail) that i got in my 27L tank with oxygen pump and filtration. I normally would change the water about 20% every week and i will add in some nutrafin aquaplus into my water. Recently I observed that my fish has some white spots on it and i suspected that it might have white spot, so i went down to my local fish shop and bought a medicine for the white spots.
However, days later it started to show symptoms of dropsy. Such as hiding at one corner and occasionally swimming to another position, have protruding scales that resembles a pine cone, having an extremely swollen belly and not as active as its old self. Its belly has started swelling a few months back but it didn’t have any obvious symptoms that may suggest that she might have dropsy so i did not do anything.
Due to its abnormally large belly I thought it might have indigestion and has recently started feeding it peas before she had shown any sign of dropsy.
On 9 September I bought medication to treat her dropsy and currently I change 20% of its water everyday and add epsom salt, the medicine (dropsy) and the anti chlorine. 4 days into its treatment, i observed that its has developed 2 pea size lumps on its head just beside each other and its cheeks has swell up tremendously. She seems to be even more unactive than before the treatment began.
Can anyone please tell me whats going on with my goldfish??? Is it normal to have this type of reactions when treatment for dropsy starts? if not what am i doing wrong? What medicine must i buy for my goldfish? Is she having a tumor?
Thank you all.
I have a goldfish that I have been trying to take care of. I’ve had him for a few weeks now and have been taking advice from a local pet store on how to take care of him. I had no idea about cycling the tank before I got him! At first he seemed like he was fine. Until I bought an ammonia test kit and the ammonia leaves were very very high! The pet stor told me to get a 10 gallon tank and put him in this RO water that they sell. I did that last Saturday and he got very sick! I changed his water back out a few gallons at a time with the tap water and he slowly started looking better and swimming around more. But he’s not completely better he still has white stuff over his eyes and his skin at the top of his body is black! I stopped doing water changes and using prime because someone told me to not put anymore chemicals in the tank and just get nite out. So I’ve done that for the past few days. The fish is still not looking better and the ammonia leaves are still super high! Can someone please tell me what to do???? I feel awful because I feel like he’s suffering!! Could someone please help me???
Just bought 3 goldfish male was chasing female i seperated him he also began to stress and just hang at the bottom
We were able to cut down most of his fur around the cut and cleaned it with a providone-iodine solution (diluted with sterile water to the color of a weak tea). We then applied butterflies to close it and wrapped it so he couldn’t get them off. They only held for about 72 hrs as we were only able to cut his fur down rather than shaving it. The wound is mostly closed with only approx. 1 cm still open. We don’t have any more butterflies and I’m not comfortable trying to close the wound now that is been 4 days. So we have been putting silvadine 1% cream on it daily and dressing it so he can’t lick the cream off. There are no signs or symptoms of infection but I know an abscess is still possible. But what do I do/give him to keep that from happening? Neither me or my husband have ever had anything other than goldfish so I just don’t know enough about vet medicine to know what else to do do or what’s even available to me from home. Is there an antibiotic that I could give him?
