Hello and welcome Angel :D How was the tank set up ?

angel62 02-12-2007 08:10 AM

it was set up like i was told to. its a 10 gallon tank i have a filter a small one, i use aquarium salt and water conditioner. nothing else if i can help it i do partial water changes and the decorations arent sharp. there is 3 fish in the tank about 2 inches long. this just came up with the fin. she is very upset that "Elmo" isnt feeling well. we also just treated her other fish in the same tank for a body fungus. all is well there.

when i set the tank up we let the water sit like 2 days becuz its tap water. and i do use the water conditioner to eliminate chlorine and chloramine. Any help would be appreciated. my daughter is all frowns. :?

sounds like 'elmo' has fungal infection too.

i was hoping no fungal infection but i was suspicious. what should i use to treat it, the last medicine i used was maracyn. and when i returned home from work today he was using his fin just fine.i will keep an eye on it though. thank you so much for your help. im sure i will have lots more questions. thank you again :D

i use myxazin for fungal infections but there r many other opinions, best wait for the experts to reply

primafix is a good fungal remedy

Maracyn is fine. You may try to have a look on this list. I haven't updated it much yet.:roll: But hopefully, I can when I find more meds to list.:) Binox, etc.:)

Also may i add (i think a black moor is a goldfish)

Goldfish are no good in a tank that size, they need at least 30 gallons with double filtration, Is it possible for you to move it to a bigger tank and use the 10 gallon as a tropical tank?
