    Hi all.

    Over the last 3 months my fish have been getting sick one by one and dying. The Ammonia and nitrite are both 0 and we have been doing water changes once every 6 to 14 days to keep the nitrate low. We have tried Primafix, MelaFix (depending on the initial/other symptoms), metronidazole and now we just gave the last dose for the treatment plan of praziquantel.

    Some other symptoms our fish have been developing include:
    1. bloating
    2. lack of appetite (probably from bloating)
    3. fin rott
    4. pop eye
    What else can we do? We have done so much more than allot of other people do yet our fish keep getting sick?? At this point the only thing I have left to check is if I have heavy metals in our water supply. Could there be anything else I am missing?

    Thanks,
    Michael. C

    Can you let us know the pH level, Nitrate level, temperature, size of the tank and the stock of fish you have please?
     
    The more information you can provide the better chance we have of being able to help.

    For dropsy, I don't know that there is much you can do, besides all that you've done. My sibling had a goldfish with dropsy, and it was bloated so much we put it down.
