| || | One Oranda GF causing a dirty mess.
So I rescued this gray oranda a feew weeks ago. He is about 3 1/2 inches and in a 10gal with my pleco temporarily till I get my 75gal up and running at the new house. Now I have had many of goldfish before and I know how dirty they can be, but this guy by himself is crazy dirty! My 55gal with 4 goldies was never like this one oranda.
I have been doing 25% water changes a day for the past 2 weeks now. The temperature
as at 76`F. I add in a little StressZime, StressCoat and aquarium salt ever other change. No luck, its clear for a few hours and gets dirty again. Its brown!
I only feed him sinking pellets twice a day, and not very much. There is good air flow and close to 2 inches of gravel, no plants.
Can anyone help me???
