Best medicine for sick goldfish
« on: May 24, 2009, 08:45:12 AM »

I have a goldfish that has developed white spots on its tail and body. What type of medicine do you recommend for treating this?

White spots sound like it has Ich.

If you have a heater, use it to keep the water temperature at a steady 75 degrees fahrenheit.  Then add about 1 teaspoon solar salt -no additives-   for each 5 gallon of water, which will serve as a tonic to help goldfish resist disease. Do water changes daily for about a week, adding salt each time. Adding salt to the water is often the best way to cure a sick goldfish.

Hope this helps
