    My goldfish swims around everywhere with his mouth wide open. It started happening about a day ago. He can still eats and swims fine, but sometimes he isolates himself from the other goldfish in the tank. I attached a photo of what he looks like and there seems to be some kind of substance in...

    20 Gallon Angelfish?

    I recently have gotten a new 20 gallon fish tank. I am going to switch my 3 guppies, 3 white cloud minnows and 4 inch goldfish into the tank. I have always had a fascination with angelfish. I was wondering if I could put just one angel in the tank with the other fish I have. Is it possible...

    5YO Goldfish w/ red spots on head

    I've had my Goldie in a 20-gallon tank in Alpharetta while I'm at vet school in Athens. I transferred her to her 55-gallon tank here in Athens today. She's been away from here for a few months now so I just noticed this on her head. A friend/"fish expert" thinks it's fungus. What do you guys...

    Goldfish problem

    Hello! I have 2 goldfish in a 30 gallon (I know, too small) tank. They are usually in the outdoors for 6-7 months in a semi-large pond. We have a small, 10 gallon tetra whisper running as the only filtration (besides plants). It was the only filter we had. Surprising, they haven't died yet. But...

    Am I "over-chemicaling" my water?

    I have three goldfish in a forty gallon tank (Black Moore almost two years old, red cap oranda half a year old and a new Ryukin a few months old) and I'm afraid I may be putting too many chemicals in the water. I have Well water so I have no concern for chlorine, but I do get heavy metals. I...

    Black Moor Feeding Amount

    Hello! I bought my Black Moor from PetCo, and the employee told me to give it 3-4 pellets, once every day. I read online that you should feed it twice or three times a day, with food it can eat in 30 seconds. So, my question is, how much should I feed it each day? Thanks so much!

    Help! What to do about fumigation?

    Goldfish Can't Swallow Food

    So a little while ago I bought a new goldfish. Quarantined him for 2 weeks, was doing great, eating well and was totally fine. After 2 weeks I put him in my 75 gal display tank (with other goldfish) and about a week later he started sitting at the bottom and when he'd eat he'd sit and chew on...
