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.

Maracyn is fine. You may try to have a look on this list. I haven't updated it much yet. 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?
