What is the cause for a goldfish to have Ick disease one week and the next to have the torn fin...
disease? I did recently add a tropical fish to the aquarium . Shortly after the addition my gold fish had the white spots . Finished treatment , now one week later Ghost the goldfish has torn fins. Huumm ? Is it something I should or shouldn't be doing ? Oh and the tropical fish died.
I am not sure about the tornfin disease but I know of two ways your fish could have gotten Ick. First, and most likely, is that the new fish you introduced to the tank exposed the other fish. I have found over the last two decades of keeping fish that a new fish can wipe out an entire tank. As a result of said knowledge, I would sugest setting up a small isolation tank for new fish to dwell in for at least a week upon purchasing them.
Secondly, temp. changes in the tank can cause Ick esp. if it drops too much or too fast.
I hope this helps some.
Hi there, sorry for my late reply
There are one rule that you should keep in mind:
Never populate tropical fish along with gold fish, They are extremely sensitive to each other diseases, and the most important thing is that they both need different water conditions.

For me I pick Neon Tetra, the small fish that swims in group that's found in the Amazon Jungle what it takes to be favored fish ever. With its blue and red color its makes it as hobbyists well liked fish. Plus neons are relatively very cheap...
