i am in no way an expert, but if it was me, i would keep her in the hospital tank with super clean water (of course lol) and give her a while. im the paranoid type though lol hope she kicks this quick! :D and by the way, is she a fancy goldfish? im thinking about setting up a pond, and shes gorgeous, i might have to take a leaf out of your book and get a fancy :)

Thanks!

Yea, shes a Fancy alright.. Believe it or not 9 years ago when I first got her she was pure Orange! Over the years as she matured, she turned pinkish white.. Its amazing on how much noticeable it is...

Yea I noticed lol

Bettas colors change alot... Only downfall to them is you gotta keep them separated. Or else i'd keep alot more...

Yup 9 years! From what i hear is if you keep them healthy and in a proper tank they can live for 20 years. So thats why i'm doing my best to treat her and keep her healthy in the hospital tank... Her orginal home is a 55 gallon, but, i'm thinking if she makes it thru this treatment I might go and get a 75-80 gallon for her...

yea the separate tanks thing is definitely a huge drawback, but their personalities are so unique and awesome its worth it to me lol. and theirs always a sorority! :D

wow Corsicas a lucky girl :) ive heard the 20 years thing too actually, that would be awesome to have a fish that long! im decided, as soon as i get the pond set up in the yard ill get a fancy :) i dont know how many gallons it is though, might have to get another pond when it grows... lol always looking for an excuse for another tank. i think she would be ecstatic with a 75 gal :D

just out of curiosity, where did you get her name? it almost sounds familiar, but i cant place it lol its really pretty though :)

Its actually a funny story... My first car was a Chevy "Corsica" lol

So one day I was asking my girl what I should name her and she goes I know! Name her after your first car...
And sure enough, the name just fitted her perfect..

How big of a pond are you thinking of doing?

hahaha thats awesome! i probably would have guessed that if i knew anything about cars lol

im really not sure how many gallons it is and i havent taken measurements yet (a family friend gave us one) so im just making a guess at about 20 gallons. conservative, but id rather have extra room than not enough of course. after looking at the pond i doubt that i have enough room for a fancy :/ know of any smaller pond fish i could keep?

edit: just took some rough measurements, about 44x33x16. now im off to try to find some kind of converter to see how many gallons that might be... (by the way, its not an actual pool or square shape, its oddly shaped and i measured it at its farthest points lol)
