My fancy goldfish was sitting in a small bowl while I was cleaning his tank. My cat jumped onto the counter and got him. He was knocked out of the bowl but was still alive. I quickly scooped him up and placed him back into the bowl. I have another fish in the same 10 gallon filtered and heated tank (upgrading to a much bigger tank when I move in mid Feb). My fish is only about a month old and was purchased from PetCo on December 23, 2014. His tail has not lost any length but is shredded vertically. He has a few scales missing. The fiasco happened about an hour ago and I have moved him into a large mixing bowl (trying to put him in something large to avoid bacteria from sitting on top of him). I do not have aquarium or non iodized salt but I do have Peroxide. I need help fast! I am a beginner when it comes to fishkeeping but I'm willing to try anything I can to help this fish! I noticed he's starting to have whiteish/silverish dusting on the tip of his tail. I know ick is supossed to be white, but have personally never seen it.
