I recently bought a house that house a goldfish pond in the back. With two cats, two dogs, a full time job, and a new baby, the last thing I need is a pond to take care of, so my realtor is slowly taking the pond and plants to her house.
Anyway, one of the goldfish is fat. According to the person I purchased the house from,"There is this really pregnant fish that looks like she is going to explode any day." Obviously, since goldfish don't give birth to live young, this fish isn't pregnant. My concern is that it has PKD, and has for some time (the seller made the statement above on 9/1/11). I haven't seen the fish myself (I'm still in the process of relocating from out of state, so I'm not yet living there), but my realtor has. I emailed her pictures of a fish with PKD and she says that's what the fish in my pond looks like.
I know there's no cure for the disease, but I was wondering what I should do to help the fish or at least make it more comfortable. How do I know if the fish has PKD or something else? I have zero experience with fish, but I'll be finished with my move this weekend and will be living at the new house, and want to help the poor thing as much as I can.
