    Hello everyone,

    I have a goldfish that lives in a 50-gallon tank with two koi fish and two other goldfish. I noticed lately he has developed round spots on his body that appears to look like tumors. At first, I thought it was Dropsy disease but it does not appear so since he is not bloated. All is normal otherwise, he does not display abnormal behavior symptoms--he is eating normal and has a lot of energy to swim around.

    I treated the entire tank with Tetra Lifeguard All-In-One Freshwater Aquarium Treatment using the recommended dosage and treated the tank for 5 days, added some aquarium salt, and Melafix. I decided to treat the whole tank because I was worried the whole tank might be infected. He does not appear to be healing.

    If anyone could provide more information, it would be much appreciated.

    Note: Unfortunately, since I am new to this forum I am not able to post links to photos of the fish. Can anyone help with that?

    Welcome!

    How long have these 5 goldfish been together in this setup? Any new additions?

    I'm assuming you do a large water change weekly? Readings in PPM for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

    Sorry for all the questions, but this is just a start!

    A picture would be helpful, but the Koi maybe pecking at the goldfish.
