My Goldfish is bleeding?
My goldfish lives in a 10 gallon tank he is about 5 inches big, 4 years out-of-date and I just noticed that under both of his front fins in attendance is blood, it looks like he has matching cuts. There is nought in the tank that i can think on that would effect theses. The tank has two plants within it and the rest is just rocks. What could have caused this? And what does it show? is he dying :( ?
ya of late do reseaerch!
If they look like open sores, then that's a bacterial infection as all right. But the fins are kind of a weird place for that to show up like that, normally ulcers will show up on the body somewhere.
Your best bet is to check the water quality first to rule that out. If it is that, next start increasing your water changes and look around for a larger tank. If it's a bacterial problem, you'll inevitability an antibiotic to treat it. With septicemia a medicated antibacterial food is your best bet. Good luck!
