skin,sticking out like a pimple on some larger on others.sharing pond

I sure hope that salt is 0.15%!!!!!! keep it under 0.1%. you need to snag one of
those goldfish. if it ruptures and white pus comes out it may well be internal
infection and definitely feed antibiotic food like romet for a couple weeks. people
have been having pretty good luck curing this with kanamycin in tanks as both
oxolinic acid and kanamycin are absorbed thru the skin. but hard to treat whole
pond. now if the bumps are white and on the gills.. that is breeding stars. Ingrid

breeding stars are white bumps on the gill covers, sometimes other places on the head
indicating GF is of breeding age. they actually can look like ich.. big grains of
salt. Ingrid
