So i had this big goldfish in a 60 gallon tank, he was very healthy. My tank looked cloudy so i did a 75% water change. When i put new treated water in blood started to spurt of the goldfish gills, really a lot of blood. He was still moving a little bit but quickly he floated dead to the top.

Why did this happen was something bad in my water please help because i dont want this to happen again,

What was your regular tank water change routine? Tank parameters from a good liquid test kit?

Oh man. Sounds absolutely horrifying. Like rb said, do you know what your water parameters were, or are at now? Did you do regular weekly water changes?
