| || | Fish: Problems and Issues with Adivce needed
Hello, I'm new here. I have a Koi pond with tons of Koi, extremely healthy. I have one indoor tank that's huge with slowly decreasing goldfish
. I'm extremely sad about it. They're all in good condition, but there are some problems. 1. Algae. It's on the lid, but the fish can't reach it and we always get rid of it when we find it. 2. A parasite that has affected one goldfish, the only skinny one. It made her blind with white on her eyes.
3. They're pretty much all fat, except for one. No, we never overfeed.
But, That isn't the main problem. But if you can answer, please! Now, here's the main problem:
My Beautiful Bettas.
Aloe has a fin rotting illness that I am treating right now. He's about two years old and I've had them all for about a year or more.
Now here's my biggest concern: Sapphire.
Sapphire has pop eye. He has had it for weeks before I could identify the problem. Ever since I found out about two days ago, I've been treating it fiercely. His swelling has gone down so much. I really hope he doesn't lose his eye. But I'll continue treating him.
Now Sapphire is in a different tank, since he shared one with Comet. I'm worried Comet might get it so I'll change the waters.
All fish live in a good sized tank, a little small, but Comet and Sapphire's is the biggest. About 1g.
Comet has gold specks on his tail that you can only see with a flashlight. Should I be concerned?
Thanks for taking time to read, and please answer if you can, suggestions, advice, anything else will be appreciated.
