We're having a bit of a pond disaster at the moment and I'm hoping for some

shubunkin

You really shouldnt be keeping goldfish with tropical fish. The thing about
the mucous is a load of rubbish though. Tropical and freshwater fish have
completely different needs. Also are you aware...

Visible blood vessels in tail

Are you sure they haven't always been there? If you look closely at white
fish you can often see thin red veins in their caudal fin. I have a white
oranda and she has visible red veins in hers and...

is it white-spot, velvet or both?

You mention nitrites and nitrates, but not ammonia levels in your water.
Would really be worth testing for this as it could be what is causing all
your problems.

Definitely! They grow really fast given good conditions and good food. I got

least an inch in length as well as a lot round...

My Goldfish Died!

Was there a filter in the tank? Also have you tested your water parameters?
(Should always be the first port of call if there is a problem).

decent ingredients, it would still be hanging around...

That's fantastic. Let's hope she continues to improve and makes a full

Sorry, I mean to say that aquasafe only neutralises chlorine and chloramine
which is good but wont help with ammonia or nitrites which shouldn't be
present in a healthy tank set up. I bet if you...

You really need to test your water then as I'd put money on the fact that
it's this which is causing the problem. Buy a kit or take it to your local
aquatic store and ask them to test it for you....

Poor water quality is almost certainly responsible for your fish's
condition. Have you tested for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate? You dont say

The very first thing to do is to check your water quality. What are your
ammonia, nitrite , nitrate and PH levels?
Also what size tank are the fish in? Should be pretty big if you have 15
