Goldfish

I've been trying to breed my goldfish all summer but nothing has happen. I've been watching a lot of goldfish videos on youtube and I, somewhat got an idea of it. My fish are kinda "small" I guess so its not the right time for the mating season for them. Other then that there's 2 shubunkins, 1 blackmoor, and 1 comet at an adult age and I can't tell if its time for them to breed. All summer nothing has happen between them. I thought it because of the temperature of the water but I guess not.…

Nightmares in the Dirt Conversion (Callamanus worms)

So all the activity and changes has left my poor fish over stressed, and now...I have a seriously nasty case of Callamanus worms in about 80% of my fish.

 

I've lost a lot of amano shrip as well due to unknown reasons still. The few survivors have been moved to another tank as the medicine is not invert save. The medication I'm using is a JBL product called Nemol, and I'll do an update vid soon with info on the disease and the cure.

 

Fingers crossed all.
