So two of my goldfish have been "sitting" on the bottom of the tank. One more often than the other but I definitely noticed this wasn't normal looking.
I obviously looked up what to do and I'm going to get a test kit to test the nitrate levels (although honestly I don't know what that means heh, I'm new to tanks) and I did a big water change.
Recently I got two new fish... and the two I had before them are the ones who are doing the "sitting." Maybe they haven't taken well to the change? I'm also going to get some aquarium salt....
Anyone else experience this or have any tips? I don't want my fishes to die!
Stats: 4 fish, two original (goldfish), two new ones (1 goldfish one thin silver one don't know what it's called),
Freshwater, 30-35(not really sure) gallon tank
About 5 months old
No heater, no live plants
I can get more exact stats if needed, I'm at work right now.
