well i am glad that i know that , I will get a water changer this afternoon and i will switch to prime for my water treatment. also as I know you have read my other post regarding the goldfish that i want to re home I might just keep them and grab a 125G for a tropical tank with plants. Ty for taking the time to help me I am very glad that i joined this forum group and i only hope that one day I can help someone with tank issues due to the info I get on this site.

well I purchased the water changer and it was defiantly easier but not faster , took a very long time to drain the water but i just watched an episode of walking dead and all was fine.I also have the luxury of dealing with my first bout of ICH , I only show 1 fish with it so far so i quarantined him and started the salt treatment on both fish. I think i caught this fast enough that maybe the fish will be ok, and I must say that this start up into the hobby has been a bit taxing LOL.

Now for the bad news. Quaranting a fish with ich will leave you treating two tanks for ich.

When one fish exhibits symptoms, you must treat the entire tank.

It's really easy if you catch the ich quickly, as you did.

Raise the temp slowly to 86 degrees F

Add an airstone to increase oxygenation

Do gravel vacs every 2-3 days to remove ich spore from substrate

Maintain this schedule for minimum of 2 weeks

Update on the goldfish that has been testing my ability to be a fish keeper. I have been seeing nitrites that at around 2ppm so i dont like that so I have been doing big PWT to lower it , the issue I am having is after 2 3/4 water changes I get 0 amo, 1ppm nitri, and 5ppm nirta so I do some math and figure that is not a likely result so I retest and get the same result. now I decide to test the tap water and BANG there lies the issue I am getting .5 on the tap. now is this ok or will i not be able to keep fish due to this issue?
