Beti Posted January 22, 2009 Report Share Posted January 22, 2009 (edited) Hi, not sure when I first started noticing it, but one of my goldfish floats to the top (ass end first) when he tries to swim. He'll swim down and then his tail end will float back up again. I read some of the forum topics and tried to feed him the mashed inside of a pea. Wasn't really interested. I think I'll give him a rest from any form of food for a day or two. I'm a bit scared about using the epsom salts. He is in a 20L tank with one other fish. I'm not sure what they are called as my boyfriend bought them for me for my birthday. They are small white goldfish with gold on their heads. (The one that is sick has a gold spot shaped like a love heart) To date, have been feeding them floating pallets which I can see now was a bad idea. I don't know what food I should switch to ? My other goldfish seems to be perfectly healthy ? I lost my Oranda a few months ago... he had an upside-down swimming issue... use to love swimming on his bubble (upside down) along the bottom of the tank. He died out of no where. Anyway, need help asap ! I don't think he'll last long if I don't act now ! Appreciate your assistance !
