  3. Had to crop them loads for them to post so hope they’re ok. Wanted a pearl scale for ages, really hope there is something I can do to help her🙏🏼
  4. I haven’t reported it to seller as it was probably during shipping I guess? I got them from a very well known and respectable breeder I have taken some better pictures so will post them below
  5. Just received 5 new baby goldfish this morning. I ordered them online and had them delivered so they were in the bag for 12+ hours. 4 are completely fine but my little pearl scale has red blotchy skin and seems to be breathing quite fast. I’ve had loads of fish delivered before and never had this problem please could someone tell me how to treat it. Thank you so much! Will attach a pic not great but best I could get
