Think my fish is dying.
Only bought it two days ago. My baby Goldfish is on its side and twitching at the bottom of the tank. The 2nd Goldfish is staying close by. Yeah I followed the pet shop instructions to the dot.

If you just got him, he may have been sick already.
Otherwise you need to add fresh spring water, melafix is good and carbon filtration is essential.

Is he skinny?

Re: Think my fish is dying.
Hi friend hi

Aww sorry to hear that. I bought some goldfish from pets at home recently, they get you to fill in questionaires now about were they are going, how long have you had your tank, how big is it, and if you've got other fish in. Used to be able to just win goldfish at the fair at one time, without filling in a application form.

Oh how times change.

Yes, he has become flat and skinny compared to the 2nd one in the tank. I bought them both at the same time. one Gold and one Gold/black one(the sick one).

Hey. The same here. Loads of questions. I even had to show them a camera picture of the filled tank and filter before they would sell me them. Can't be doing all that again.

A camera pic?, thats crazy.That picture might not even be your tank.They are gonna have to start following people home, and demanding to come in your house just to be on the safe side.

All that for a goldfish but you don't need to do diddly squat to vote except to show up. No id...nothing.

Re: Think my fish is dying.
Also hopefully the tank is cycled and not newly set up. Goldfish give a lot of waste.

Do several partial water changes with temperature-matched clean water. Add something to remove ammonia -- you can use Ammo Carb in the filter or Prime to bind it up, you can also use a NitraZorb filter packet to absorb it.

If the fish is suffering it may be best to euthanize it with clove oil (procedure is online).

Re: Think my fish is dying.
i can gauruntee that you do not have a mature filter system and you have expirinced a amonia spike. Nitrates to Nitrites and then amonia. 6 months for a mature system, there are no quick fixes or cure all's.

Re: Think my fish is dying.
You need to take the poor thing out and lay him gently down...say a little prayer then BASH HIM INTO A FISHCAKE! It's the only way to be sure.

Oh and find that yelling out "Back to the light!" while bashing always helps....

Goodluck! thumbs

Hope you didn't use any soaps or other chemicals to clean out your goldfish tank. Even a little residue is very dangerous.

Those things don't live very long, anyway. Get your money back if they die so soon.

Re: Think my fish is dying.
Sorry to hear that your little friend died. You did all that you reasonably could to give him a good life.

Just in case anyone needs to know a compassionate way to put down a fish...

Scoop him up in some of his own water, with as little disturbance as possible, then put him and the water into a bowl or ziplock bag. Insert into freezer.

Their nervous system quietly shuts down without panic, and it is simply over by the next day.

Tank water in a small container in a calm environment plus a small amount of clove oil to sedate, followed by addition of alcohol to euthanize after a few minutes, then allowing several minutes for the alcohol to work is much MUCH more humane than freezing.

If one resorts to freezing, the fish should go into a bowl of freezing water with ice cubes in it to make the freeze process go more quickly. Putting warm tank water into the freezer where it can take hours to freeze is tortuous.
