Question Try medicating a flipping fish

I'm back. Well Typically my fish are doing fine. Well my largest goldfish Fiedmi keep doing those flips when he get excited, scared, or stressed. Well the water temperature is fine (at 72 to 68 degrees Farenhiet) but my big sister (Mango) & I becoming lethargic. Because we are starting to have depression(my fish are happier than I am) I want the GameCube to be brought back & Mango also wanted the band she's a die-hard fan of: Addison Road to perform another concert. But let's get back to my fish: My largest goldfish Fiedmi keep doing those flips when he get excited, scared, or stress & I don't know what to medicate him.
returned & respectfully:

I'm not too sure I understand what you are asking. Your fish is "flipping" and you want to give it medication? What is flipping? Is the fish jumping? Is it running into walls? Goldfish do scare easily especially in bare tanks. I need more information to understand the situation here.

Sometimes Fiedmi smacks the water surface with his tail, but he never jumped out or run into the walls. So where's Lupen?

Is he doing anything else? Just smacking the water with his tail doesn't seem to be a problem. Are there any other signs of disease? How are the water parameters? You have to give me something to work with here.

Lupin hasn't been seen here in a while. Last I heard from him he had some personal stuff that kept him from the forum.

Certainly looks like he needs a mate, he is showing off to attract a femlale, they do an upward circular spin.
Your other fish could well be a female who is not ready for breeding and hence is getting stressed by the constant harassment. or a male that is getting stressed by the dominant male.
no medication needed, he will do this for up to a couple of weeks, then stop for about a month, then it will start all over again.
He may even stop eating for a few days, longer finned goldfish may do some tail twitching and curling of his body depending on which goldfish you have.
Find him a girlfriend and sell the offspring.
Hope this helps

Question

Well I had been thinking about giving Fiedmi a girlfriend.(According to the P.I.L., he has a girlfriend)But I don't know what to do. I had already given a name to Fiedmi's "future" girlfriend. Her name will be Nico. Nevertheless, Fiedmi has no sicknesses (for right now). But I'm still worried about him.
