    i never tested the nitrate in the tap water just the ph.

    Are you sure you are following the directions to the letter? That one is tricky.

    Great write up!

    I have a question about buoyancy. I have 2 fancy goldfish in a 90 gallon - one is bigger than the other. I feed the tank NLS pellets - 0.5, 1 and 2 mm sizes. I also have the 3 mm, which the big one has no trouble eating. The smaller one doesn't either, except that I noticed it having buoyancy issues after feeding. So I started breaking up the 3 mm pellets. The problem persisted, only after eating. So I switched to the 2 mm and it seems to have done the trick.

    I assumed the size of the pellet was causing some sort of blockage or something. Good assumption?

  8. Default Oranda wen changing color, sloughing off top skin?


    0 Not allowed!
    My Oranda goldfish was black when I got her, but her stomach and surrounding body began changing to a very gold (like 24K). I have assumed that this was occurring via the black surface not renewing itself or otherwise sloughing off.

    Now something like this seems to be happening to her wen, which is very large and covers her entire face. I've only noticed this in the past few days. The area underneath this, which is beginning toward the back of her head; it is quite a reddish orange color. I can't tell whether it is wen-like raspberry seeming in nature or not.

    She has not been her usual speedy, constantly playing self for about 5 days now. She is mostly floating near the top of the tank, not in an ill-seeming way, but just not her usual speedy, joyous self. She isn't swimming through the two bubble walls

    Sorry, I typed the wrong place and it submitted the reply.

    She isn't swimming through the bubble walls but is putting her face in them and that makes me wonder if her face is hurting.

    She's not very interested in eating. Her fins are not clamped; all, including her dorsal fin, are out there and seem ok.

    She received two baby Orandas into her 40 breeder about a week ago and seemed fine, but I began to be worried she didn't like them, so tonight I've moved them back into the 20 long tank to see if Penelope's behavior will change. After a couple of hours, no change. I really don't know what to do; should I treat her for infection/wounds? I have various antibiotics on hand... .
