    Exclamation Goldfish Looking very sick, please help!


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi. I have a 110 L tank with 3 small "fancy" goldfish. THe water parameters are fine ,(NH4 NO3 NO2), there is a 1400 L/H External filter and 350 LH internal filter. The tank is about 1 mounth old and the backround story is that a few days after I started the tank the fiish started to poop white poo. they were recieveing very high protein food for the first 5 days and switched to normal goldfish food. The first thing I did was to stop feeding them for 3 days and then gave them pea for 3 more days. 3 of the fish showed improvement but 4 didn't,so I started treatment with metro. second days of the treatment the fish passed away. Now we are 2 weeks after and 2 days ago one of the fish was crawling on the bottom of the tank having a really hard time to keep himself straight , not to mention swimming.. ive got arecommendation to give him a salt bath and so I did. yesterday the fish showed improvement, swimming around, still looking less active , but much better. I have no idea if the salt has anything to do with it. today he looks a bit worse.. he still looks much better then the first day of illness but he seems a bit weaker then yesterday. he also has a weired shape in his belly, its like his chest a bit puffed, then theres a narrow part and then at rear part of the belly puffed again, also his scales a bit piney.Another thing is today I saw different fish sitting on the bottom, when I got closed he started to swimm like everything is ok, but then I saw it again a few hours later. I have a bad feeling about this , I really appreciate your help. I really want them to be happy and feel good, please share any info you know. PS my English isn't the best so if something isn't clear then please note or ask, TY20170806_131412.jpg20170806_131412.jpg

    What are the number values for NH4 NO3 NO2? Fine does not tell us anything.

    How did you cycled the tank?

    How long was the cycle established before you added the fish?

    White poo doesn't necessarily mean parasites. White poo can happen as the result of stress.

    cycling was putting the {4 small ones,about 5 cm} and doing water changes every 2 days for 2 weeks.
    about the white poo, as Iv entioned, ive waited abouy a week befor starting medicating. anyway the white poop isn't the problem right now, the problem is the weakness and the swim bladder issue. ive mentioned the history beacause maybe the simptomes help us understands what kind of issue is it and if theres a connection between the last sickness to the present one.
    thanks for your reply

    28C (82.4F) is much too warm for goldfish, long term......http://thegoldfishtank.com/goldfish-...k-temperature/

    Get Seachem Prime next time for your conditioner.

    Sounds more like a bacterial infection in the fish due to fish dying within a week. I would get kanamycin sulfate like Seachem Kanaplex since it can be absorbed through the skin and still be effective. You can treat in the tank.

    Did the bath have table salt or Epsom salt?
