  3. hi everyone i'm new here, i've had fish for past 20 years or so, goldfish last 10 years or so i thought i was doing everything right, nice size tank, good location, meals twice a day, 4 week water changes, aeration, bio filter, lighting i'd lose a goldfish every 1-2 years, wasn't sure why, started not swimming right then would die couple months ago one gold fish i had the past year started not swimming good, bulging side, i softened pellets before feeding then i started reading here, found out they were probably getting impacted from the pellets based on what i read here i got flake food, smaller pellets, scrambled egg, peas and now my sick fishy is still a little bulging but swims, eats and acts like its old self, thank you to everyone for helping me save my goldfish, from all your posts i now have 8 different foods that i'm rotating daily for them for variety i also read goldfish can live quite a long time with proper care, i look forward to it CHEERS!
