PostSubject: Damn!!   Wed Aug 26, 2009 8:01 am

You might remember me saying the other week that I took T to the fair and they were giving away fish as prizes? Obviously she was longing for one and I refused, explaining all the reasons why it was wrong, and why I didnt want another goldfish.

Well, today, T and her older sister went to the fair...............................................need I say more??

She couldn't keep her new prize at home - they dont have a tank, so he is now swimming round in my goldie tank with Patrick. He is a tiny thing, and I just put the tank light on to see if I could get a photo (I want to know what type of fish he is) and nearly sent the little fellow into a cardiac arrest. He darted around the tank like there was a shark after him, so I turned the light off again pronto.

I will try and get a photo of him tomorrow if I can and see if anyone can tell me what type of goldie he is - no doubt he is one that will grow to 12" at least!!!

Well it had to happen I suppose. Just put the tank lights on and both fish have got some little white spots on them! banghead

The bigger (original) fish has just one spot on its tail, but the little fairground one has about 4 spots on its body.

Fortunately I have some iich med in the cupboard so have started to dose the tank with that and have got the bubbles going to help the fish during treatment. One thing I wonder though, will the treatment take longer because I can't raise the temperature - it being a coldwater tank?

Thanks dekks. Looking at them today, fairground fish has got a lot more white spots on him, and his top fin is clamped down tight. I dont think he is feeding either. Patrick still has just one or two small white marks on his tail fins but seems really well and happy so hopefully he will be ok.

Little update. Fairground fish died this afternoon, not surprisingly. He had been hovering round the top of the tank and not eating and then all of a sudden he just popped his fins.

I am now a bit concerned about Patrick. He has a couple of spots on him, but now it looks as though his scales are starting to stick out a bit around his tummy area, and he is not quite so active around the tank.

Fingers crossed for him but I am a bit concerned I am going to end up with an empty tank!!

Thats a shame about your fish Mary. I think Patrick is living in fear because T now accepts fish death as an opportunity and has her eyes on getting a plec for his tank after he has gone. I think he feels his days are numbered Very Happy
