"Hello! I wish someone could help me =(. I have a 55 gallon tank with 2 goldfish. When I got my big goldfish he was in kinda a bad stage, I put some melafix in the water before entering the new fish. He had like 2 round balls in his head with like a white string in each ball (like a pimple with a white string) the other medium goldfish ate those strings, and since then the medium goldfish has been poking the other one. Not like bullying I think it's more like suckin on him. Like eating something from the other one. I noticed now, there's a part on the big one (a black moor) that you can see his scales (I think the other one did that), and the black part (his own skin) is gone a little. I put him in a hospital tank with some antibiotic, because it looks like a fungus. (tetracycline). It's been day 3 and he's releasing a lot of slime from that part of the scale.. what can it be? I'm so worried?.. I'm from panama central america and I haven't been able to found a decent vet..there's no fish specialist here and ppl in the pet store seem to give me vague answers, things work like that here. I'm trying my best to make him feel better but I don't know what to do. Please any tips or ideas?"
