My fish have finrot, HELP!
« on: April 19, 2011, 03:57:30 AM »

I have a common goldfish and a Comet that I got for my 13th Birthday, ever since we have had them there has been problems Cry !

We got them from 'pets at home' and we where told to keep an eye out for any white spots incase they got 'Ich', so when we noticed them we went straight to the shop and got some 'Ich' treatment. We gave it to them and they didn't move from the bottom of the tank for a whole day. So I went to check on them and noticed that they had lost their colour and their tails where covered in white spots and there fins and tails where in strands  Shocked !

Whats wrong with them have they got 'Ich', 'Finrot' or what?  Huh   

Please Help!  Cry

It sounds like fin rot and something else. It could be ich or a different parasite or fungus.

I think Mardel has a disease chart on their web site.

Also, start doing daily water changes to get your water in better condition. I'm not sure how much to change, maybe change 40-50% a day for now until they get better.

How big is the tank? How often have you been doing water changes? Test the water and post the test results here.

What kind of filters, and how many air stones? There's a sticky at the top of this page to fill in this type of infotmation.

From what I've seen, ich is very bright white spots.

Could you please answer the previous questions too? Smiley
How big is the tank? What kind of filtration do you have? How often do you change water and how long have you had the tank set up??
