Hiya, i'm happy to say he's still looking a lot better. Still think he's going blind as when i feed him he seems to be THAT close to some food, and then he doesn't quite get it! Also, the biggest of my 3 fish has recently got FAT....seriously, he's massive!!! I think he's eating for both of them! He's active again and isn't sitting on the bottom anymore - this only happened for a couple of days so maybe he was just a bit under the weather. He is still hanging out a lot at the top though - it's like he's eating invisible food, that's the only way I can describe it...but then he'll swim around as normal for a bit.
The black mark isn't raised and the scales don't look any different. I think it could just be his change in colour generally which has resulted in the black mark.
I got my water tested today:
Bacteria/nitrite - 0
Bacteria/nitrate - 0
So all fine on the water front. Not worried too much now, but i still think he's going blind. This is quite ironic actually as I named him Goldie after a fish I had as a kid, and Goldie#1 went blind and spent about 8 years alive and blind, and used to sit on the bottom of the tank all day long...we'd have to push his food down to the bottom of the tank for him to pick up each stone in turn in order to find it! He outlived the healthy fish Bubbles by about 5 years!! Now Goldie#2 I named after him as he looked the same... (i.e. gold...)...and now he looks like he's going blind too.....but now he's turned silver...oh well!!
