Well, your goldfish may be just stressed. Changing homes, changing temperatures, ect. Their just not used to all these change and could be stressed. Just give him a couple of days, as long as he's breathing, he should be fine. Feed them lightly, and put some skinless small bits of peas in their diet atleast every 2 weeks ... They could also be scared, if they seem to hide when humans are around. But don't worry, my fish used to do thaat, and they do sit in corners when they're stressed (usually after a water change).
Hope I helped.
There can be many reasons why fish hover in the corner. Fish that are in a tank that is too small become quite stressed and tend to hang out in the corner or pace back and forth or up and down. Fish that are sick will also hover in the corner.
Uh... I think thats swim-bladder disease - go to the pet shop and ask for medicine for that - or you can try researching cures for it through the net.
Um, he may have a bubble bladder disorder. It is an incurable illness in fish. I would quarantine him, I had the same thing happen to my fish, we just thought he was being lazy, we had him 4 a year, then 1 day I went to go see them, and the water was pitch black. He had died, and when he died, he let out some type of gas, killing all but 1 of my precious fancy fin goldfish, MORAL OF THE STORY, : ITS A BAD IDEA TO KEEP HIM IN WITH OTHER FISH.
I wish I could an answer to that. We just moved our Goldfish from a small tank to a 10 gal tank. They were lively & happy in the small tank but now, they are just laying at the bottom of the tank & don't look happy. I don't know what to do or what is wrong. It could be the change in temp but the water temp was not much different than the smaller tank. Actually, from what I am reading goldfish like cooler temps. I hope I am not killing them.Please help anyone.
He could either be sleeping or he may be suffering from a disease. If he is missing scales or looks unhealthy he may have a disease. You can take him to a vet but they may not be able to help you.
I'm not sure but my fish are dying at this moment, I'v had one completely stop moving at the bottom and one that is laying at the bottom but still breathing. And I had 3 die last night and one die a few days ago. This whole disaster is happening probably because we are cleaning the tank
My fan tailed goldfish stands on the bottom of the tank on his tail, its weird. He's been like this since I got him a week ago, what could be wrong? He spent the first evening struggling to swim and kept turning over onto his back. Then he spent two days lying on his side on the bottom of the tank. Then he started swimming and yesterday he seemed well. Today he is back to standing on his tail again and not swimming. He hasn't eaten and yet when he does swim about he looks happy. There are no obvious signs of disease and at times he is quite lively. I'm so worried.
I have a Goldfish who leapt out of the tank 2 times and was revived by my boyfriend and now cannot seem to stay underwater..she literally floats like a balloon back to the top of the tank..she sleeps at the top of the tank because she cannot stay down. She has had this condition for 2 weeks now and seems otherwise fine.
Your Goldfish is either sick or injured.
Go to your local pet shop and ask for a Goldfish medicine.
In a week or so your fish might die.
My goldfish usually only do that when the tank is a bit mucky or the filter isn't bubbling.
And they have been living for over three years. That's pretty impressive I guess.
Umm actually my fish does that to so and I asked some of my friends that and they say that is usually always
I have this problem as well. But I don't need suppositions from people who have no idea what they're talking about or "know someone who once had a fish." This page is useless.
Maybe your fish is sick, or dying. A lot of fish don't live that long especially gold fish.
