Hey guys!

New to forum, have tried different other Danish forums, but not with much luck! =(

My problem, is that one of my goldfish (Got 2 total in 54 litres), sometimes gets this yellow "blob" at it's backtail, its yellow and last time it was pretty big and sat there for quite
some time before it finally broke off or something, leaving quite a great mark in the fish's tail, in the area it used to sit it... reason I say - it - is that I read on this other forum, that
maybe its some kind of parasite, that lives on the fish, and drains its energy by sucking its blood..

Must say tho - the fish eats normally, and only thing that makes it bit different from when it's "clean", is that it rests somewhat more on the bottom than the other one, also because if above is true, it gets drained slowly.

The guy suggested that we tried to remove it, so now its the 3rd time, I can see its coming back, even before the tail has healed back to normal, so found a small container, and tried to somehow get hold of these
small bubbles, but its nearly impossible because the fish freaks out, and makes it impossible to hold still .. Tried with a bit of salt - with no luck - been in 4 pet-stores around the city, with pictures on my big-screen Nokia, and none of them has seen anything like it, so I dont even know what kind of medication to use, if any??

So take a look at the pictures, and tell me what you know, if anything?? What can/should I do?? ANYTHING would help - makes me sad to watch the little bugger lyeing there =(

Hope someone can help a silly Dane - And sorry if my english is bad, aint my native language =)

/Chris.
