Thank you so much guys <3 Just hoping Ro hangs on to get that salt treatment in her enough to make her feel better. She has been looking better.

It just makes me want to go to PetSmart/PetCo and buy them all to save them from such horrible diseases like this. I went into PetCo the other day and ALL the goldfish (even fancies like the little pearlscales) had ick and were clamping. I wanted to cry.

Once you learn how to take care of goldfish all those fish in the store and those little tanks with goldfish on them make your heart break.

Have you been able to get any garlic juice to add to Ro's food? It sounds like a freshly squeezed garlic clove would be your best bet. Garlic also has mild anti-parasitic properties.

Yes! My boyfriend's mom and grandmother cook with fresh garlic all the time (Italian lol) and I asked if I could have one. Just gotta get over there.

I tried giving her the regular food today too just to see and she didn't seem interested :(

Garlic and wine! The best ingredients!! Have you been able to get any garlic? Has she eaten anything today?

Still no garlic, but she ate today YAY!! I tried the medicated food again and she did pick at it. I'm spending the night at Nick's tonight so I'll raid his fridge for some garlic XD

She's such a little fighter that one. All her friends have fallen to that illness, but she's still going. Her fins looked a lot better now too (her dorsal and other fins) - they aren't frayed anymore. Haven't got a good enough look at her tail, but its no worse.

Yipee!!! It's great news that she is eating and her fins look better! I was getting worried about her for a bit there. She's a tough little cookie!
