  1. he's been in a shallow quarantine tub for a few weeks before, it did nothing, They have had duckweed befor, ate it all, nothing. I've tried everything.
  2. But the problem us that this isnt an infection and is not damaged. Its just deformed. He will not get better . A shallow tank would have to be permanent. My suggestion was just to enable him to grow a bit so it makes his life a bit easier

  4. Hey there! So I have this tiny telescope eye goldfish in my 66 gallon tank. He's like 5 cm. I'd say. Which is kinda way too tiny for his age since I got him like 8 months ago. He's always had buoyancy issues, he floats up and it gets worse with feeding no matter what I feed and how much. Now since he's been in this big tank and he has always had to use a lot of energy to get down I think it has affected his growth. He's very smart, he wedges himself under plants to stay down, and I provides two terra cotta pots as well as a fry net on it's side with sand in it so he can rest but he still struggles and it makes me sad to see it. It's not really possible for me to set up a shallower tank or tub permanently for him and he would just be lonely. Now to my actual question. What do you guys think of the idea that I keep him in the tank, but in the fry net for a bit since the fry net is quite big and he is so small and not the best swimmer anyway, So he can grow a bit, can eat without using too much energy and such. He will still be able to see his 3 friends thru the net so he won't be lonely. It's just the only thing I can really do to help him get a little head start. Obviously what I could try is epsom salt baths or even swim bladder aspiration but I'm not confident enough to even anesthetize a fish let alone aspirate a swimbladder tbh. I'm sorry this is really freaking long but I'm just not sure what to do with him. I love him so much, he has so much character and is so friendly with humans but the just can't do much but float up and fight his way down again. I really don't want to euthanize him...
  5. Hey! I'm just kinda curious, is he just a fan tail with a more slender body? Doesn't he kind look like a wakin? His tail is quite short too
