I have come across this site due to a sick goldfish that has body fungus.
I have kept tropical fish for over 10 yrs but never goldies. So I have been researching meds for this butterfly koi. Are the med requirements different for goldies than other tropical fish? I didnt see a forum for 'welcoming' to the site so I am posting here and hope its in the right place?
Here is a few photos of my tank w/ shunbukins and butterfly koi. :-) I currently have a 225g tropical fish tank, 29g betta tank but wanted to mainly focus on my new gold fish, which I love.
Tank info: 55g
no heater atm, but will use it in the cooler months.
penn plex 700 cannister filter
hang on back, aqua clear 700.
water changes: 30% 2x's a week or more if needed. ( they are such big poopers!)
assorted air tubes.
fish: 6 shubunkins ( calico) I have no idea on the gender id's.
3 butterfly koi.
New fish largest at the moment is about 4 inches or so.
Future plans... working on a koi pond that will be up and running in the springtime.
I will enjoy reading through the forums to learn what i can on these gorgeous and fun fish!
