  1. I was cleaning the hospital tank that my goldfish is currently in about a month ago and made the biggest mistake of my life, I looked away for one second and his head got stuck in the vacuum. My husband quickly helped me get him out of it but he hasn't been the same since. I feel so horrible about this, he was already in the hospital tank due to other injuries sustained in our large tank, but at the time of the incident he was almost all healed up and ready to go back. Since this happened he hasn't swam around very much and has been hanging around the bottom of the tank unless i physically move him, he has been eating pretty well up until about a day ago now I need to watch to make sure he even has a couple kibs. I have been doing water changes every other day and just medicating with Melafix, two days ago I noticed his fins are starting to look like they are deteriorating and his mouth now has a sore on it, his mouth did have some slight damage from the vacuum but it seem to be worst. I set up a reef pump today to try and get more water moving to maybe make him feel better and move off the bottom a bit, this was obviously the wrong idea because after about a half hour of the current just pushing him around I turned it off and now he is just on his side hardly moving at all, I think this might be it for him. I am so heart broken and just am willing to try anything. I am sure I damaged his swim bladder and I just don't know what else to do to try and help him on my own so I am hoping someone here does.
