He doesn't have any of that. He looks and acts like he did when I got him except for the bloody spots. It's so frustrating when you don't know what's wrong exactly. Arg. Lol!

My ammonia was .5 when I checked today. I just switched out almost all the water (2 x 50% changes back to back). I made sure my tap ph matched the tank first and heated the water to the right temp. I was testing weekly. I guess I'd better be checking daily for a while. :0 Poor Whiskey!

Have you checked your tap water for ammonia before conditioning it? Mine has ammonia in it. Mine is .5 out of the tap and 0 after adding prime.

I use Prime too. I don't know why/how it got so high in just two days. He's happily swimming around an flaring at me right now. I think he's pissed about all the activity. LOL!

I'll just keep up with the maracyn plus, the water changes, and the testing daily until it's back to 0,0,5. If it's been having mini spikes in between my testing then maybe it's ammonia that caused the red streaks. I feel bad now. Bad fish Mommy!

You're not a bad fish mommy! You're doing everything you can to help him. It might be just a bad case of fin rot.

Does anyone know anything about hole in the head disease? I noticed that Whiskey has these tiny pinholes around his face and either some of the scales around his head have started to flake off or there's like a gunk coming off of him. He always had this strange grayish discoloration on the top of his head, even since I got him, but I assumed that was his coloring as he's a little piebald.
