I am thinking sushi for dinner!



I can't believe this thread has over 2300 hits.

Went to feed Goldy this morning and "holy sheet!" She has a white fungus on one side of her face. Small and big dots. Inter web search confirms its "Ich".
Treatment underway.
She could die of this. Some kind of microbial parasite. Probably what killed Louie. He was tiger spotted, too many spots to tell if there was any white ones.
Prayers for Goldy appreciated

Goldy is spending a lot of time on the bottom today. She sleeps there.
I medicated the water again with Ich kill.

Sounds like the same thing that happened to our Goldie. Spent about a week and a half on the bottom of the tank. Would move around looking for food but never go more than a half inch or so off the bottom. Rough week for goldfish.

Dumped the tank. Threw out the rocks, fake plant, castle and treasure chest. Cleaned the tank and pump. Put it away in the basement. I'm done.
I tried.
Stayed on top of regular cleanings and water changes. Fed them 2X a day.
Up and die on me?
Done.

Any thoughts on how to off a Pink Gourami? Asking for a friend.

This thing won't die - algae, high acidity, high alkalinity, high nitrates, neglect, bad language, more neglect. Biology and nature have failed me. I may need to take active measures...

And the two Tetras it calls friends....

You might suggest to your friend they try a half teaspoon of garlic powder in the jar of fish flakes. Shake it up real good. Feed it to them. Maybe they will start knocking each other off one by one.

As they say in NJ, "just flush it down da terlet!"
