Exclamation "Rescue" Update

Ok, so we started our dreaded science project yesterday, and we have already got 4 fish that are really sick. I took home a very pretty little yellowish orange vt because he looked dead, but apparently his water just wasn't declorinated. Hes healthy as can be (shhhh don't tell my science teacher) and then I took home 2 little blue ct females (only about 3/4 an inch each) cuz they had some fairly bad iche to start out with. those three already all have homes to be. They will be shipped in a few weeks. Then I have a 3 inch goldfish that is completly torn up from a betta, and idk if hes gonna make it or not, but I'm hoping. we will see what 2mro brings!

I remember seeing your post about thsi project a while ago. Could you tell me about it again? I'm pretty curious. I just remember that it sounded awful.

If melafix can be used on goldfish, I guess bettafix could, too. Bettafix is just a milder version of melafix. But I don't know anything about goldfish.

i'm pretty sure goldfish can't live with bettas. They require entirely different water temps, with goldfish being most comfortable around 65 degrees F, which we all know is WAY too cold for bettas.

You may want to research some aquarium salt for gold fish, to help heal the wounds. I found this link that suggests it, as well as a few others: http://www.goldfishinfo.com/salt.htm

good luck!

btw where did all these sick fish come from?

Salt and clean water may be the best way to go.

LaniBaby - Veganchick's science teacher is having them do some whack "experiment" ...god knows what they're supposed to ever learn from it though.
Anyhow, here's the original board about it, I believe it was slightly before you joined this forum.

We're rooting for you VeganChick. You are the Fish Whisperer!
