Ok, some of you may know about Corsica my 9 year old Fancy Goldfish.
Seems shes getting old and her immune system is not as strong as it once was. She use to be able to beat off anything with a simple water change.
Anyways, it appears she ended up getting a combination of Fin Rot and a Bacterial infection or parasite. I originally put her on a 10 day treatment with Melafix which cleared it up a lot. She had a few red spots left on her tail but I assumed she could fight off the rest herself.
Well I was wrong.. The red streaks came back and shes acting real stressed, jumpy and shy when people walk past the tank. She darts off and thats not normal behavior. So today I decided I'm going to house her an a 20 Gallon Hospital tank and treat her with Maracyn 2 and let me tell ya, stuff aint cheap. Also I removed the carbon from my Filter floss. So heres the pics:

Also I could be wrong, but, I noticed a red spot (Looks real early) on my new Panda moor so I decided to treat him aswell and kill two birds with one stone:

I'll keep this as a journal in case in the future anyone ever runs into this problem and would like to know how to cure it and if Maracyn 2 really works.
