    I've kept fancy goldfish in temperatures of 82f for 3-4 months for years with no issues, and I had an uncle who had no issues with regular comets in shallow ponds at that temperature or higher. The key is to keep oxygen levels high so that they are not gulping for air.

    Metro is not the right medication for treating bacterial infection, although it has limited effectiveness on bacterial infection, especially when not consumed. The fact that your fish has shown signs of some improvement means that aspect is somewhat working, and that a little metro is being taken in but not enough. However, having lost fish quickly, and a red spot plus bulge occurring means that you need medication specifically targeted at treating a bacterial infection and does not have to be consumed.

    Also not all salts are created equal. Sodium chloride as a bath is only good for treating external parasites and preventing pathogenic bacteria from proliferating. There is a minimum level of salt needed in a bath. Magnesium sulfate as a bath is good for reducing bloating if it is caused by intestinal blockage.

    Sure, if you can gather a culture from the fish, and then check the culture under a microscope.

    He is looking much worse today, and his scales are like pine. theres another fish on the tank who seems to develope the same symptoms, he seems a bit weaker and has pine scales.. iv tried to look for kanaplex or other kanamycin products but i think it isnt available in my country. do you have suggestions? other meds that might help?

    Nitrofurazone which is in API Furan-2 if your PH is below 7.6. API Triple Sulfa if it is above 7.5.

    In terms of gallons, how large is a 110 L tank? How many gallons would that translate into? Could be your tank isn't large enough to support goldfish.
    20 gal. high: planted; 5 white cloud minnows, 4 golden White Clouds, several RCS, 2 blue shrimp, 5 Amano shrimp, several snails; Azoo air. 65 gal: planted; 6 rosy barbs, 6 yellow glofish, 3 red glofish, 3 zebra danios, 5 white cloud minnows, 3 dojo loaches, 6 crimson spot rainbow fish, 12 large Amano Shrimp, several snails; AC110.
