Fireonthetrack, you might notice an odd flow of posts. I merged your two threads as this is getting confusing. One thread is better than two.

You have not posted your water parameters it seems. Pls post them as soon as possible.

The white patches appear to be a case of columnaris.

Separated fins does not always mean it's finrot. It can be a case of torn fins which Melafix can cure. Use Jungle Fungus Eliminator if you clearly suspect finrot. It also helps against columnaris. No need to add salt as Jungle products already contain salt.

I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!

If I were you, I would buy a filter as soon as possible and try to start it. If you have no filters, then your water parameters are most likely at their worst for the fish. I am suspecting you may have ammonia and nitrites at detectable level and nitrates exceeding to dangerous levels already. What is your schedule for water changes?

the fish are normally fine in sunshine, as long as it isnt too strong, the problem with it is that the sunshine will promote algae growth which can steal nutrients from the goldfish, expesially oxygen.


As for getting a 10 gallon, i would advise againts it as you are still going to need a 30 gallon tank for it. It, to me that is, would be a waste of money. Do your best at getting a 30 gallon

You should be changing water at least once every day. Is there someone you can give these fish to? Are there still 7 goldfish in this bowl? An air pump with an air stone dropped in will help with circulation and oxygen production. Keep the water cold, 65 - 68 degrees. Warm water contains less oxygen. Everyone here has all given the same for the best advice in this situation... get those fish out of that bowl as soon as possible, and don't feed every day... only once every other day and just a few pellets. Make sure they eat it all within 1 minute. If they don't finish the food within 1 minute, scoop the rest out.
Good Luck!
