View Full Version : black moor changing or losing color

I have a black moor in a 10 gallon tank with 2 other goldfish. I have had the moor for 3 yrs and the other 2 for longer. Last week my black moor lost his color on his anal area and had grey stripes on his pectoral fins. A few days later there were white spots along the edge of the pectoral fins. I started treating for ick but havent seen much improvement. Also he now lays on the bottom alot. When swimming he is still very active. There was nothing new added to the tank. Any ideas on what could be the problem?

That's not ich. It sounds more like fin rot. Treatment for Ich would do nothing for that. What is your water change schedule like? That tank is way way too small for 3 Goldfish. Those 3 Goldfish should have nothing smaller than a 55gal tank.
