Can anyone please tell me what's wrong with my goldfish
I have isolated him from the others (two gold fish, both healthy) and added an antiseptic called TetraMedica which is supposed to get rid of fungi and the rest but it's had little effect. If it's a bacterial infection than should administer antibiotics? If it's a skin infection should I add salt in the water?
He eats well and moves about like usual.
His stomach started getting covered in brown patches and now it's spreading to his fins.
I'm really fond of this little guy so any help diagnosing what's wrong with him would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Please check water parameters.

Brown on goldies usually toxic water and usually from Ammonia.

It looks and sounds like ammonia burns to me. We need more info. Tank size? How many fish? Ammonia reading? How old is the tank?
