    Hi any one know about goldfish , our fish has been skulking around the bottom of his tank for nearly a month now… feeding o.k but not whizzing around like normal :( he has no visible lumps, bumps or patches so I cant diagnose anything online.
    Surely if he was gonna pop his clogs he would be gone by now :(

    maybe he is just old (i had him 3 years..)

    i think they go through phases like this. my goldfish would be about 6 years old. about 3 weeks ago we had to move the tank into the sitting room while we got work done in kitchen. anyway came down one morning and he was lying on his side. thought he was dead so went to take him out when he startingmoving. 😯 😯 changed his water, fed him and he is bright as a daisy again. 😆

    I think we have enough to put up with with our men and kids and even noisy neighbours but a fish with an attitude!! Now that takes the biscuit!!!
