 Hi  Friends,
 
 I  have  15  goldfish  fries  from  my  2  yrs  old  Goldies  (Common  Goldfish)  .  The  fries  are  1.5  months  old.  I  had  nearly  40  fries  from  this  batch  but  now  left  with  just  15  of  them.  4  of  them  have  grown  to  1  inch  with  proper  features  of  goldfish  including  color.  But  the  rest  of  them  are  not  much  big  neither  the  features.  I  keep  them  in  a  2ft  X  1ft  X  1.5ft  glass  tank  half  filled,  1  inch  gravel  bed,  1  sponge  filter,  1  areator  and  a  rock  (The  young  ones  love  to  nip  the  rock  .....  guess  they  eat  the  algae).  The  do  25%  water  change  every  alternate  day  (2  days  old  water  with  anti  chlorine  )  
 Feed  them   with  Hikari  First  Bite  &  finely  choped  tubifex  worms  3ice  a  day  (all  soaked  in  water).  Clean  the  uneated  food  with  in  30  mins  after  I  put  them.
 One  symptom  that  occured  last  week  was  some  fishes  kept  swiming  near  the  surface  and  died  in  2  days  time.  Same  symptom  is  now  showing   with  one  of  the  big  fries.  I  cannot  see  any  possible  reason  for  these  deaths  and  remedy  to  cure  the  infected  fry.  Yesterday  I  got  a  bottle  of  methylene  blue  ....  but  there  is  not  mfg  date  nor  expiry  date  on  the  bottle  ....so  not  using  the  medication.  
 
 Kindly  help  me  to  keep  the  surviving  fries  alive  ...  especially  the  biggest  for  whom  I  am  really  sad  .....  had  expected  this  one  to  grow  and  mature.
 
 Regards,
 Suman

 25%  percent  water  changes  every  alternate  day  may  not  suffice  if  you're  feeding  them  this  heavily.  High  ammonia  levels  are  probably  what  is  killing  your  fish.
 
 Just  to  be  on  the  safe  side,  check  the  gills  on  the  dead  fish  for  flukes.

 Thanks  a  lot  retro_gk  for  the  suggestion.
 Actually  the  fries  are  small  so  it  becomes  very  difficult  to  analyse  them.  Can  you  please  tell  me  how  to  identify  flukes  in  fries  or  any  link  that  could  help.
 Also  would  like  to  add  ....  the  symptoms  occcures  in  1  sometimes  2  fry  ....  I  guess  if  there  is  a  rise  in  ammonia,  all  the  fishes  should  have  shown  signs.  So  still  wondering  what  could  be  the  possible  reasons.
 
 Regards,
 Suman

 Hi  Suman,
 This  is  a  sure  shot  indication  of  Fluke  infection,will  suggest  some  measures  for  treatment,hope  it  helps
 1)remove  all  fries  in  a  tub  OR  keep  you  tank  bare  bottom
 2)start  treament  with  Prazi,this  is  supposed  to  be  very  safe  for  fries  and  very  efective  as  well
 3)change  100%  water  daily  till  the  fries  reach  a  size  of  1  inch
 4)feeding  tubifex  is  good  but  you  have  to  treat  them  before  feeding  them,you  can  find  posts  on  cleaning  tubifex  on  this  forum.
 
 The  best  looking  fries  are  the  first  to  die,start  the  treatment  immediately,you  should  be  able  to  save  most  of  the  remaining  fishes,
 
 Regards
 Shishir  kamat

 @shishir
 what  is  Prazi?
 never  heard  of  it  earlier
 @suman
 it  sure  appears  to  be  gill  flukes,
 increase  oxygen  content  in  the  water,
 or  increase  the  aereation  level,
 people  in  the  disease  n  cure  section  may  be  of  more  hlep  to  you  Thumb Up

 Thanks  a  lot  Shishir,
 
 Will  try  doing  the  same.  Also  it  would  be  great  if  you  can  answer  the  query  asked  by  icecube.
 The  tubifex  I  have  feeding  them  are  the  dried  ones.  I  almost  powder  them  and  soak  in  water  from  the  tank  for  30  mins.  Should  I  treat  thoese  worms  too?
 
 @icecube
 Thanks  to  you  too  for  the  suggestion.  Thats  what  I  exactly  did  after  seeing  those  symtoms.  Both  airstone  and  sponge  filter  are  increased  in  aeration.
 
 Also  would  implement  the  100%  water  change  and  making  the  tank  bare  bottom  today  itself.
 
 Regards,
 Suman
