Symptoms and Ailments

It might seem very confusing if not overwhelming to the inexperienced to find so many varied opinions on the subject of goldfish: Goldfish care, like politics is not black and white. Sometimes there is no right or wrong, and diagnosis can be extremely difficult in many cases. Because of this difficulty; it is preferable to treat symptoms. What works for one tank with one fish, will not always work on another, and unfortunately, sometimes nothing works.goldfish clamped fins >

Since there are limited reliable resources available for treating ailments and diseases of the goldfish; the process of elimination is the standard procedure. Try the least invasive or least dangerous route first, making sure you've done everything possible before resorting to medications.

Reading celebrity gossip is my guilty pleasure... lol.
Are you guys (who post pictures) the photographers, or do you find them on other sites to post here?
Saw Sinbad today, at a tropical fish store in Chatsworth. He'll be back there on Saturday to drop off his 9ft boa that they are going to sell for him. Couldn't figure out why he looked so familiar, so I said "You look so familiar..." and he replied that it's because he's always in the store. Then someone called his name from the back of the store and he laughed and said "Or maybe you've seen me somewhere else" Ha! I felt like an idiot, but at least I wasn't gushing at him or something equally annoying; we just talked snakes & reptiles while they finished my sale & his paperwork about the snake
