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.
