UPDATE: The fundraiser to help rebuild my fish room has been launched! You can check out all the details and contribute here:

Solid Gold Aquatics this same thing happened to my fish tank. it doesn't matter how clean or healthy your fish are if the parasite comes one will die from dropsy at the halfway mark then your aquarium gets wipe out. I had an early warning cause I had tropical sword fish and glo fish and 2 lynch(I think there called that) and one of the lynch died but before it did I saw spots under its eye. this doesn't just cause dropsy but also gold dust disease and depending on the fish it will cause it to swell up to the point its gills close so you have to euthanize it to prevent it from suffering. This happened within a month and on the last week 3 of my fish died. afterwards I tried to figure out why it happened but I never could found out why or treat it.

I know exactly what happened. you have classic signs of KHV VIRUS. This destroyed my koi collection about 13 years ago. next time you buy a gf or koi... quarantine them but raise the Temperature slow to as high as you can. this will cause the virus to break out if it's opportunistic. you had a virus and not a bacteria. you can bleech your filters vs trashing. contact me at my email if you want to discuss

The only thing common to different tanks is the water change/drip; in that case i would be very suspicious of the tap water. I use carbon filter at my house tap and uv before it goes anywhere near my fish, my bathroom or my kitchen - i am lucky and have an esker near me where i get my drinking water bottles.

Please don't a setback like this cause you to stop. Just rethink your procedures and space, and plan for the greatest space later. I used to raise them for a good 12 years when I was younger, and I regret not being able to continue with them. I don't have any tank space right now as I barely have space for myself now in a single room to myself. Maybe one day I will be able to have them again in the far future and in the meantime, I have enjoyed looking at the film of yours the last few months.

I know this might sound a bit counter intuitive as we all know about the dangers of chlorine to fish. But chlorine kills most bacteria and viruses it comes Into contact with fairly quickly(within minutes) . Try a dip with slightly higher chlorine content than tap water for upto 5 mins then transfer fish Into a different quarantine tank with clean water, then maybe a aquarium salt dip after, then back to fresh water for recovery. After all dropsy is nearly always fatal so there is little to lose.

Hi! I'm so sorry for your loss and all of this! I had no idea you were going through this. Poor Clyde :( Of course, I'll support you in your fundraiser. I've learned so much from you! and yes you deserve all the help and love and support you are receiving. I understand how hard these things are. My 8-year goldfish died 2 days ago out of nowhere but I now have an idea after talking with other goldfish parents that are experts. I came here to watch about your trip to Japan and to keep up with your channel because work had me so busy lately I had no time for fun, and when I saw this my heart dropped. :( <3 stay strong and keep being the amazing person you are! <3

I have no experience with goldfish. I have betas, each in 5 gallon tanks, but I don't understand why you couldn't have put the three fish that were slightly infected, into another tank, and tried to treat them? so it wouldn't risk any other fish.

Hello, I know you have a lot of info but if it helps the exact same thing happened to me. Fish with all the symptoms. The cause was fungus. This fungus go in to filters, it clings to sides of the aquarium and on plants. When the bio load is big the build up of ammonia causes small damage to fish skin, gills and eyes. The fungus then goes in and attacks the fish immune system. This is why you have different diseases going on, it depeds on which ones the fish were carrying but were immune to so far. Dam thing (fungus) is hard to get out but you did a good job to tear all down and replace it. If you have sick fish use nystatin bath, and then treat for bacterial infections.

oh my god.... I was travelling so could not follow ur videos... its sad news. Will miss Clyde.
I don't think my experience is more than u in any way... but would like to share few things. hope its helpful for you.
For your info I too keep around 400 gallon 2 tanks and 500 gallon 2 tanks for gold fish.
I too had this problem and i lost many fishes due to this. Later I went to biological center for fisheries and enquired about it. In this case seems it is not bacterial its viral.
I separated each fishe in individual quarantine tanks. Instead of using aqua salt I used Magnesium Sulphate(1/4 per 10 gallon) and used Kanaplex (1level scoop per 5 gallon) with a hint of Oxolinic Acid(to cure any ulcer inside). gave medicated food especially for dropsy(Metro Med)(hand feeding must). 7 days my remaining fishes were fit n fine.
Hope this helps.
I am really sorry for Clyde.

I don't really know anything about goldfish so take this just as another point of view :)
Is it possible that you have some sort of toxin in the system... when fish are stressed they are very susceptible to various diseases... Some thoughts include BPA from the plastic "tanks" your using... if they are not meant for such things sometimes they are not BPA free... another thought is some sort of spraying in the area that may have landed in your tank because they are exposed to the outdoors air.

Anyway like I said maybe you've thought of these things or they don;'t apply but it's just another thought ;) Sorry about your fish :/ it's a tough thing loosing animals you've had for a long time.

dropsy is only the bacteria in your filter that get into your fish because of a weakened immune system due to other illness or bad water quality (chemicals/toxins/waste) the only cure is 100% water quality. I've treated my fish before. Also, tea tree oil.

Axolotl are reptilian amphibians and thus can be carriers of salmonella. Be mindful as this particular issue can harm YOU as well. Perhaps you should send a sample of your axolotl tank to a water tester and see if any bacterium/viruses can be found. Might not be over for you, my dear. I'm sorry for your loss though. I had a die off last year of over 30 fish just because I over-saturated the water by adding a hose into my pond with a garden sprayer that caused the water to froth.

one thing that we can all be sure of is that everything alive is adapting to humans being here. deep-sea fisherman every hardcore fisherman will tell you that in the past 20 years it has become ten times harder to catch anything. disaster stories about tential Unstoppable viruses caused by antibiotics. I bet you that this dropsy causing disease going around wasn't here before pet fish were cultivated.

this happened to my 30 gallon. my reedfish was showing signs of dropsy so I treated the WHOLE tank. I did that last night. I woke up this morning and found my reedfish and 5 minos dead. I'm not sure what I did wrong.

I'm new here, but incredibly interested in this channel. I have so many questions and videos I already have saved to watch. Just one question that has been on my mind since I started, is how do you euthanize a fish? I apologize if this is a touchy subject. When do you know it's right to euthanize and how does the process work?

Oh no! That's terrible! I'm so sorry you have to deal with this plague. :( Don't blame yourself too much- sometimes bad things just happen. Tearing it all down was probably for the best, seeing how infectious it was. I would definitely donate to help restore your fish room and for the new cabinet! You could aim for the fish room redo, but if you don't have enough to do the project do the cabinet instead. The cabinet is very cool but I'd like to see the fish room redone. Hang in there!
azzarazzar - 6 years ago
If only I lived close to you, I would build that cabinet for you. I just finished building my 100G fish tank cabinet with inbuilt shoe storage that could technically support 4 tonnes of weight. 100% level, not even 1 shim needed to be used. Been in operation for 3 months now.
So devastated for your loss of Clyde and all of your other Goldfish. Please let us help you with, I bet if you set up a GoFundMe many of your subs would love to help you including me.

As soon as you're ready to put up the fundraiser I'll start donating. It is only the fairest of occasions, many of us have followed, watched, heard and learned from you every step of the way. I guess it's time for us to give back something very much well deserved in return. Hundreds of us need you and we'd hate to see you and your passion fade away, that's not happening so we're ready whenever you are! I am terribly sorry about Clyde but remember that all the other chubs need you still and many more will come to stay in your heart just like Clyde did. Best of wishes and luck GoldieGoddess ❤️

what happend to the dicus? its always different running from canister to bigger filters and foam filters and such. You should have a decent sized Qt tank if you dont have on i have a few you can have. with a canister filter and then you can use it for medial help :-) Also from living in florida we need alot more extensive water changes or chillers the temp should be around 74-76 well worth the money for outdoor aquatics. Also the pluming and such i can help with as logn as you buy the materials and such ive build several setups myself including breeding tanks and such if you wanna no or see pm me ill show you :-)

I think you should start to your office room the 200g. It will take maybe 6 months or so to complete up to the selection of your goldfish, at the same time you can give yourself a break, and start slowly to the garage. You can start fan raising in your own account so it will go directly to you. We sure your fans will help. Good luck and be happy.

I think every person who keeps multiple tanks has moments like this. probably not on this scale but we blame our selves for these creatures that depend on us. what I mean to say is that Solid Gold has so many people who support and love this Jenny and her pets. She has done so much for this hobby and educated so many people including myself, I would love the opportunity to show how much I appreciate her and allow her to keep making videos. I teared up hearing about Clyde, all Jennys scale baby's are stunning but he was very special.

Im so sorry for your loss... I saw Clyde a couple years ago very shortly after I got my first 2 black moors and began my own fish journey...he was the first goldfish that made me want to really get into it as a hobbyist because he was so striking and beautiful and Ive been watching your channel ever since. You inspire me everyday as a goldfish lover and hobbyist and I can only imagine losing Clyde is akin to when I lost my Storm. She was a huge pure white Ryukin that a grew from a baby to the size of my hand before she passed from dropsy almost a year ago...I stayed up all night with her when she started to go downhill, I didnt have the resources (or the strength because she was my baby) to euthanize her, I just tried to treat the dropsy as well as I could. I hope that whatever is going on with your fish subsides soon. Thank you for showing all the sides of goldfishing keeping. ♡♡♡

Jenny please keep going and make your fish room beautiful!!!!! I hope you do not get discouraged!

I have had a similar problem with my tank and wanted to give up. I was told I was cleaning and changing the water too much. Your tanks are really clean and perhaps too clean and there may not be enough beneficial bacteria to help the fish if they do come in contact with a parasite. That is one of the benefits of canister filtration it provides more beneficial bacteria. Anyhow I am sure you have heard an earful of advice. I have not had any issues since I have stopped cleaning my tanks every week. I leave them two weeks at least. Quarantine all new fish etc. Goldfish don't like to be disturbed too much and water changes can be stressful if done too often. Also, sometimes fish get sick before you get them. But I know that good water can reverse even the worst diseases and have seen dropsy cured in goldfish. Fish are delicate and they do die, I think this is part of being a fish enthusiast the death of fish.

Buying new fish is so fun so I hope you embrace picking out your new fish. I can't wait to see the videos.

I can't wait to see a rebirth of your fish room!!!!! Have faith in yourself you are doing great things. You are so much fun to watch. I hope you get better at this hobby.

We all learn as we watch and it is amazing that you put yourself out there the way you do it is really amazing. It's not really about the fish it's about you. (Although, I love fish.)

I have loved your videos and learned a lot from you.

Keep up the good work. I am rooting for you and as soon as I have some money I will certainly donate to your cause.

I had the same problem fish dying left and right but now I've figured out a method i hope you will consider it. Every month I medicate my entire 100g tank with General Cure and Furan2 one dose for 7 days then wc. I just feed my fish 1 kind of food which is NLS Thera+A which is the best fish food at the moment and I got myself a fx6 filter rather than the sponge i had before . Before I had 10 fish in a 100gallon and still fish were dying now with this method; new fx6, medicate every month, feed one type of food, 30 fish in 100gallon started July of last year no fish die yet .

SillyToadGirl - 6 years ago
Im so sorry for what your going through. If you lose any other fish, I highly recommend having a necropsy done. I use to trade and resell bettas. and I had something similar happen, where many of my fish just suddenly developed dropsy (and sometimes other bacterial illness), throughout all my tanks, and passed away. When I noticed one of my fish (who strangely was always a little underweight and wouldnt grow his torn fins back) developed a spinal curve, I was told to have him tested. I emailed a local veternarian who had specialized training in fish, and had a necropsy done once the fish with the curved spine passed away, and it turned out to be mycobacterium, aka Fish Tuberculosis. I'm sure your aware the devastating effect of that disease. I threw out all my fish equipment and the very few things I didnt throw out, I was told to sterilize with isopropyl alcohol as its one of the only things known to successfully kill mycobacterium. I certainly hope thats not the case for you, but if it is, I would definetely get it tested for as you might be able to save some of your fish by isolating the ones that dont look effected.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, my mother and I loved Clyde. It is so annoying when anyone deals with these big problems in the hobby, this is the part, at least in my opinion, when the hobby isn't fun. I just had to empty out my 1000 gallon pond, and decontaminate it, because all of my goldfish suffered an infestation of fish lice, man those suckers are mean, and unfortunately tough as well. I know you will never get discouraged, you are the main figurehead of goldfish in the youtube community. Keep up the great work Jenny, I know you will never give up.

aww Jenny I'm sorry that sucks. I had fish in the past and I still do I was not as experienced as much as I am now and I kept wondering why they all died, but it turned out that I dident have a filter... it was dumb, but I thought if they fish could survive in a pond why not in a tank? but it was not good lol.. now I have all my tanks with filters and heaters and the amount of space that is needed.

I am a new subscriber, I am sorry I found you at such a bad time as far as fishkeeping. I hope it helps you to know that a lot of fish will be saved by viewers who loved Clyde taking this difficult lesson to heart. I will continue watching and I hope to be on the beginning of watching a wonderful rebuilding process with you. As a fundraiser idea, I would totally pay for the naming rights of some of your new 'mascot' fishies. Selling art to fans would also be amazing.

It's so reassuring to my sense of humanity to see your dedication to the health of your fish. I was in a chain pet store yesterday looking at tank after tank of sick and dead goldfish, I left the place in tears. I agree with you about dropsy, my heart always sinks when I see a fish with dropsy. I'm sorry you're having to go through this. Thanks so much for this video, very informative.

Symptons sound like Hexamita which is a protazoan bacteria build up in the fishes gut, dosing the goldfish with metro is definately the way forward. Its super hard to treat so good luck. I lost a full grown thai silk flowerhorn to hexamita.

Sorry to hear about losing Goldfish before their time. People don't understand losing Goldfish before their time is like losing any beloved pet that is member of family. I really like your Goldfish. Your videos are Great. I hope you don't give up. I want to encourage you to think about setting up Goldfish aquariums as a living ecosystem that recreates mini pond or think of it as a indoor pond with gravel and plants, lots of life, as well as using aquaponics as part of filtration. You can never create a perfectly sterile environment, but the more natural the aquarium, with lots of life in it, it will sustain Goldfish in a more forgiving way. It was probably the imported Goldfish. I have had great success with undergravel filters(in medium 65-75 gallon tanks and even 40&55 gallon) and Goldfish with lots of banana plants, water sprite, Anacharis, apongeton crispus, java fern, Anubias, etc., yes they eat some of it, but I have so much, it grows strong and it really works, also using aquaponics above or outside the tank has made Goldfish very healthy and it looks great as well. I hope you continue to keep Goldfish, they really are the best. Goldfish do best in a natural environment that is alive like an outdoor pond. Bare bottom with sponge filters do not support life the best, then you have to do very large 75-90% water changes every week, I guess people say it is less maintenance or looks cleaner, but looks ate deceiving. By recreating outdoor pond inside, your Goldfish environment will be more stable, less fluxuation, even invading microbes will be fended off easier.

Stay strong my friend! I too have many problems with goldfish and often times swear I'm never gold fishing ever again. I have problems when the weather changes and it's always dropsy. I can cure it but about a year later they get it again. I often compare goldfish to thoroughbred horses, because I have had many. They have hearts of gold, but are very sensitive and delicate. They, like goldfish, have many health and lameness problems that other breeds would not even blink an eye at. Like goldfish, these problems that they get would probably not harm other hardy non modified species. But, because we love them, we keep trying. I would donate a small sum to help keep your channel going and to help you recover from this devastating event. Keep your head up and this too shall pass. Good luck
solidstate - 6 years ago
Dropsy is always terrible. Maybe it doesn't have a single cause, but it's always devastating. It reminds me of FIP in cats. Once they have it, there's nothing to be done but euthanize. I remember when I had a tiny kitten, named Tiny, and he manifested FIP and began getting fluid buildup in his lungs and abdomen and difficulty/agonal breathing, I almost never wanted to foster kittens again.

I'm so sorry to hear all this! When it rains it pours right? But I had something very similar happen to me about 7-8 years ago, I've always had fish since I was young and out of the blue my whole tank systematically crashed :( one by one my fish developed what looked to be Velvet, but then each fish (including a betta I had had for like 5-6 years) died with what looked like dropsy (along with the velvet looking stuff) I haven't had fish since( I live in Florida too so not sure if it could be some sort of graphical thing??) I broke my tank down cleaned it and it set in storage for a long time. I actually cleaned it and set it up again but no fish in it.

Am so sorry to hear this... :-( But do build your fishroom anew! It happens to the best of us... My suggestions after decades of experience are these: 1. keep water temps at 28-30 degrees cent for maintenance, for treatment 30-32 degrees cent would kill off external and internal parasites along with rock salt, metronidazole, etc... (Am sort of some cheat when it comes to having long-lived tropical fish because I live in a tropical country where temps are not a problem.) 2. Go for more racks and tanks instead 3. invest in overhead filters and powerheads (plus sponge filters) for all tanks 4. feed dry foods only 5. regular water changes are a given of course.. (Haven't used fish tonics and antibiotics for years with this protocol.) Good luck and we'll see you soon again... :-)

One major thing you probably ought to do with your major sterilizing is to check your actual air system and swap out the filters there as well. Not meaning just the pumps and similar, but the actual building ones as well. =

The contamination can get into your air system as well.

Part of it might also be mold issues along with or on their own. It's a nasty mess of stuff to deal with.

This made me really emotional. I really understand what you are going through since I had to put down my 7 yo fantail for dropsy just 4 days ago. I had been treating him for initially what I suspected was constipation then infection for 2 weeks... and he looked better too initially! On his last 2 day of life he started coning and I knew I had to let him go too to save his only ryukin tank mate. I buried him in our garden and we are going to do a small funeral when I have a day off work. I really hope you find out what has been killing your fish. I was crying so much just losing one, I don't know how you can euthanize more than one fish at once. Best wishes.

i recently, very recently, two weeks ago lost all of my betta fish in my sorority tank because of columnaris. Within just two days i lost 13 fish... scooping out their tiny bodies in my hands and just remembering their life and personality, it's so so hard. I was and still am also going through an extreme low in my mental health as well and finishing up college, so stress was through the roof. Literally the worst two weeks of my life.
What's so painful is accepting responsibility, blaming yourself like 'they trusted me to build their world around them and i was careless and didn't quarantine a fish for long enough,' there's just so much blame and so much guilt. But like, you know, we can't predict everything that's going to happen, we all have good intentions, the care we give these animals are genuine and in the end i think it's good to know that you did everything you could for them, and you gave them the best life they could have asked for. And their passing is more difficult for us than it is for them, and i take some comfort in that. I hope you can as well. Stay hopeful, stay strong. We're all here for you, and remember to be there for yourself too.

Maybe the water is too clean. I dont know if these specie of goldfish can survive in a pond exposed to natural light and temperature changes.

I'm so sorry for your losses. I lost my beautiful angelfish, Eve, about a month ago and I almost sold my fish and tore down my 55 gallon tank.

So sorry to hear about the bad news, been trying really hard to follow over IG, but it's great to hear an update from yourself, will happily donate towards a fishroom devout to goldfish! There's too little out there for the goldfish hobby and as a personal supporter of the goldfish hobby, I would love to see this happen!! Sending love and support x

Do you have, or would you consider starting a PATREON? Art giveaways for different tiers of donation subscriptions, perhaps?
Love to you sugar- I'll help however I can. I'm sure many of us will.

I think you should do a finding for the central air system. I would definitely help, because you and Joey have inspired me to start my aqarium Hobbie. I'm starting with bettas though till I am confident enough to try something a little harder.

IMO, you should never be afraid to do a fan funding thing. Some people have a negative view of it but so what? You're telling people upfront what you need and why and it's entirely up to them whether or not to pitch in.

You're an awesome, positive presence in the Youtube fish community. For people who have a few dollars to spare, it could only be a good thing.

Sorry for your loss <3 Could the vinyl from the pools perhaps have been affecting them? I have never had luck with fish in plastic tanks or vinyl kiddie pools I have used in the past. Maybe Line the pools with rubber pond liner. The kiddie pools aren't really meant for long term water..... But of course, I am not an expert in any way.... I know how you feel. I was devastated when my Midas Cichlid, Peaches died. He was 17 years old. I still miss him. Even though he was an ass hole and killed EVERYTHING.... He was so cute. You have many things with you that hold beautiful memories. Good luck with your treatments of the others. <3

You should be treating a smaller volume of water. It will be easier to do your water changes during and after medication use. Maybe only keep the 600 gallon a third full during treatment. Hope you get it under control.

Hi Jenny, I'm really sorry for your loss, my stomach sank when I watched your vid, but please know you did everything you could. Definitely do some kind of funding, I'd be happy to contribute both as a fellow fancy goldfish keeper, and as a fan of your channel. Wishing you strength for the weeks ahead, all the best from Chris in the UK.

have you researched on those kiddie pools. I wonder if the rubber breaks down over time, and it contaminated the water. also they weren't even covered.

Awesome Solid Gold Jenny, although I don't keep any goldfish, I love to watch your videos and especially the ones with Arlo because they helped me set up and maintain my first betta tank. I'm all for fan funding to keep this hobby alive and so you can share more of your goldfish stories and adventures. Take time to take care of yourself too (I'm really attached to my one betta that when he's sick, I get really sad, so I know a little how that feels). Sending lots of love

Oh Jenny I'm so sorry. This is so frustrating. I really relate and appreciate what you said about how hard it can be difficult to film at times. While this channel is new I have other channels that I have totally disappeared from like this before. Good job pushing through and I'm so sorry about Clyde and just everything. We all really appreciate everything you do!

hey Jennie, damn, so feelin ya. I just recently found out about your channel through Joey from one of his videos. Ummmmmm, your not alone, anyone that has ever got into keeping fish has had a disaster story like this. The truth is thats part of what we do. It is hard to deal with because we do get attached to the fish, especially particular fish, like Clyde, Corderoy, and Gwen, and losing them can really sink ya, but dont let it. Think back to how and why you started keeping aquariums and fish, and what it has done for you, and because of your channel, what it has done for so many others, which is why you started your channel in the first place, to share your love of keeping fish and hope others find that same love. Don't let this defeat you, its just a shitty bump in the road. I'd love to say something magical to help you cause i totally get ya, but there is no magical word to fix things, just keep going, don't give up. If you were to give up, its you that really would lose out! xo Matt
