    Your tank is more then likely containing to many nitrates and nitrites. A simple way of fixing this is to take 30 ml of your fish tank water to the nearest fish shop and majority of fish shops can do tank water tests which will tell you what your tank is containing to much of and they can direct you in the right way of showing you what treatments that you can put in the tank every certain amount of days to eliminate what is making your fish struggle. Within a week you should go back to the store and test the again to get a opinion on how much your tank has improved and how much longer you will need to apply the treatment to your tank so your fish is healthy. Also note down to the pet shop anything that has appeared to be unusual on your tank

I have two YoYo Loaches who have lived happily in a Cichlid tank for a couple of months. Yesterday, I saw their behaviour change from amusing to bizarre! They chased each other for about twenty minutes, circling and almost digging a hole in the gravel - at high speed. What really surprised me was that one of the loaches almost completely lost its colour, becoming nearly totally white. As soon as it had begun, the "ritual" ended and they swam off happily to continue eating. The one who had lost its colour regained its normal look within a couple of hours.

That is just incredible! I have 2 stripeys, Snoopy and Woodstock,and for 3 years they never emerged from their hiding places and seemed the most boring fish . Then one day Snoop began swimming for hours and hours everyday. He is so much fun to watch and has so much personality. I even changed his name from John,to Snoopy because his dance looks like the happy dance, snoopy does in the Charlie Brown cartoons! Woody is a bit more sedate but does now, come out to eat, and occasionally swims around, tho she did almost jump out of the tank about 5 minutes ago! These guys have such amazing personalities, they just require a bit of patience. They live peacefully with my guppies, cory cats and beloved Bettas. I look forward to growing old with them! They have been with me for 5 years, here is to 50 more!

I have had a Black Moor Goldfish for over a year now, and ever since I got it one of its eyes has been growing EXTREMELY larger than the other. It always freaked my out, but the fish swims normally and is healthy otherwise, so I let it go. I believe that the fish is blind in the smaller eye now - it is clouded over and shrunken.

Over the past couple of weeks, a growth has formed at the back of my fish's one giant eye. The growth grew to the same size as the overly large eye, so now it is as if there are two giant eyes on one side of its head, one behind the other - it's that big!

If you can believe it, the fish is still swimming normally and seems to have no balance or floating issues. I cannot find reference to a similar occurence with a goldfish ANYWHERE online!!! What is happening to my fish and how do I help it?

    It's hard to say what it is, but there's a couple of possiblilities.

    It could be a tumor, which goldfish do sometimes get. Tumors can be internal or external, but the external ones are identified as lumps that are actually attached by a smaller thread, or sometimes multiple threads. They are sometimes have a bumpy cauliflower-like appearance or can simply be smooth but still protruding.  Unfortunately there's no effective medial cure for tumors and it's usually recommended to either remove the mass or euthanize the fish to avoid a slow death.

    Another possiblility is an ulcer, which start as a slightly raised scale that's usually yellowish looking, but can look clear or white. The area aroudn it becomes bloody and inflamed and the bump protrudes. Ulcers can be treated and must be treated right away. Maracyn 2 is one medication to look into as possible treatment.

    A third possiblility is Lymphocystis, which is the most common viral disease found in freshwater fish, it does effect goldfish, and is typically chronic. Also known as Cauliflower Disease, it is transmitted by viral particals in the water, usually introduced by another infected fish. Once infected a lump will form and enlarge until after about 4 weeks, when it will slough off and release viral particles into the water. The fish should be quarantined for at least a month. There's not really a specific treatment for Lymphocystis, but the fish should be treated for secondary bacterial infections and the lesions will eventually revert and the skin will be pretty much normal.

    My moor was a rescue, lump formed above right eye and is now taken on a cauliflower look with several lumps and continues grow. Growth is over a year old and fish still swims and eats ok. Fish itself has grown over two inches since I got it. So seems healthy except for lumps. Any input would help.

I have a 55 gal tank which is a month old. I currently have 5 Tiger barbs, 3 swordtails, 2 Black Mollies and 2 Bristlenose plecos in the tank. I am thinking of adding 3 Yellow labs to the tank. Can I do it with a PH of 7.4 - 7.6? Can the Yellow labs co-exist with the rest of the fish?

    I know this is answering an old question but since no one else did I will say that your plecos will be fine but the others I would be leary if there was a breeding pair of yellow labs they can get quite agressive. They need their own space. Mine move the gravel out from under the rocks they have and create caves and tunnels. I have a 75 gallon with one breeding pair and 2 catfish and a pleco and a bunch of young fry that I let fend for themselves. They quite often get eaten. I had about 6 other African cichlids, including 2 other yellow labs, which all got killed by my overly aggresive momma.
