Hi all, in a panic other a stunned goldfish
juwell 400 litre tank with real plants, three goldfish and a plecostomus(spelling)
goldfish are 7(13 yrs and blind), 8(4yrs) and 9 (13 years old known as grumpy
)inches long, the plec is 12inches.
the largest goldfish has jumped in the tank and knocked himself out on either the lid or light fitting. This occurred about 12 hours ago (7pm uk time)
I did not see what happened but my wife heard a large bang and rushed in to see him sinking sideways to the bottom. he was still breathing and using his front fins.
I increased the aeration and made sure has facing the water flow direction. he stayed on the bottom overnight and is now trying to swim but is almost horizontal. He is not floating on the surface yet but looks tired, I managed to hand feed him a little flake food this morning. he appears alert and can see fine but is not in control of his direction.
I am keeping the tank light off to lower the stress levels
any idea how long this might last and is there anything i can do?
