Is this Ich
« on: April 26, 2012, 02:35:38 PM »

I noticed some white spots on my black moor on monday. There doesn't seem to be anymore appearing and she is happy and swimming about a lot. If it is what do i do to treat it. Here's some pictures

Theyre on the gills body and underneath the tail fin. The ones on the gills are more promenant than the others

Some clearer pictures might help Smiley But just in case, keep an eye on him (as you said), if the spots spread on the body you might need to treat the tank with salt Smiley Have you tested the water recently?
If you haven't changed any in a while, I'd do that now, just to be sure Smiley

Could be scale damage....does it look to you like grains of Salt? Is he rubbing himself against the tank sides or decorations?

The look like small thin dashes. They don't look like grains. He isn't rubbing against the tank or decorations. He is eating well and his behaviour hasn't changed

That's strange... does it look like it could be the slime coat peeling off?

Okay I've hunted about on google and found this;

Quote
White lines in black moor goldfish usually develop with age.


That quote I found here (Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.)
It also mentioned the possibility of Black Moor goldfish changing colour.

(Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.)

I also read on the above link... Someone was saying their Moor had white spots, which became lines and then dissappeared.

Not sure how helpful any of it is, but it's all google came up with. If the fish is acting normal and eating, then maybe just keep an eye on it? If it's an illness, you'll know soon enough.

(Hopefully the links are working, when ever I post, they seem to disappear to me >.<)

When I had just gotten Raven, and performed huge waterchanges, her slime coat would peel and it would be pretty obvious-looking, like small lumps of whiteness coming off. This was when I was dosing every third bucket (since it would be easier to measure this way), no other fish reacted like this, but once I started dosing every single bucket and pouring the water in slower etc she stopped displaying this Smiley
You might want to add a small concentration of salt to the tank though, just to be sure.

Ill see if i have time next week to get some salt. Thanks for your help everyone, ill keep posted if theres any updates Smiley
