Most likely it is a bacterial infection called columnaris. If he is still eating you could try feeding him antibacterial food (Jungle Antibiotic Food is accessible and good). It's much better than having to dose the entire tank and risk having to restart your nitrogen cycle. Hope this helps your little guy!

I agree with the Jungle Antibotic Food I have had good results with it in the past. Good luck with your goldies.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Thanks so much for the well-wishes!

Thank you also for the reviews/suggestions about Jungle Antibiotic Food. Will get some and try it also

Still another update: Calico Moor breathing fast this afternoon but no other visible complaints; this evening breathing worse, barely even active, and with 2-3 Ich spots. Maybe he's been suffering all along?

He went straight into the 29 gal. tank with the Black Moor and Super Ick Cure already in progress, still breathing fast or maybe just a little slower but moving better after a couple hours there, and after 24 hours our Black Moor is more like his older self. Honestly I sat up with the Black Moor a while last night, he seemed so sick he might not make it. Now the sad little Calico Moor is as bad or maybe worse...

What've I brought on to these poor fish!

It gets -- and stays -- better, right?

To update all the kind forum members helping out,

Our poor little Calico Moor, Tiger (RIP+), died this afternoon, even tho he was in the tank with Super Ick Cure treatment

Thank you everyone for all you've done to try and help,
Steve

I'm really sorry to hear that, Steve. Ich is a tough disease to battle. It can infect the gills without any visible symptoms except heavy breathing. We can only hope that he went painlessly. <(-_-)>
