Hey all! I’m Joh and I just joined you all during my lunch break. I was Googleing my Oranda’s ailment and saw similar posts on this forum that had some great advice. I was hoping you all could help me with my little
He had a single spot on his dorsal fin but it had since resolved. It cleared up overnight. Yesterday I noticed three spots on the right side of his tail fin. No white spots have ever manifested on his body. He had some on his wen, which I heard is common when they are experiencing a growth spurt. Ammonia was a strong 25ppm yesterday. I attributed that to adding a new fish to the tank and the BB was playing catch-up to the new amount of output. I did a 60% water change, added Prime and Stability.
He’s eating and active. All other fish in the tank have no symptoms. Nitrites were a bit high yesterday before the water change (second to lowest reading; I forget the actual measurement for the API fresh water master test kit.)
I have a picture with the spots attached. He shares the 50 gal
tank with two other goldies.
Should I increase the temp and treat with salt? Treat for fin rot?
I look forward to your advice!
