Help! Sick Goldfish!
Hey gang, I've got a large 6" white goldfish that has suddenly, after a small water change, started acting strange. He's what I'd call listing in the water, acting like his balance is off. Strangely, he's still trying to eat. I cleaned the gravel yesterday and changed out 3 gallons of water in a 29 gallon tank. Nothing unusual, and everything should be fine. I may be just mistaking a huge, overweight fish for being ill, but he strikes me as unbalanced. Do freshwater fish get "swim bladder" trouble? What is the treatment for it?
I've had this fish for nearly 3 years and he's a true familly pet and I'd hate for him to kick off. Besides my 5 year old would be very hurt. Help friends!
