Bottom Sitting Hello, our goldfish (named Dragon) is bottom sitting today, this is likely due to constipation from overfeeding (bloating). Though I have been feeding a very small amount of food for this goldfish and its companion, perhaps it is good at getting the lions share. Regardless we will be adjusting our feeding strategy to avoid this in the future. While Dragon was on the bottom I noticed two white bumps and photographed them, do they warrant extra attention? http://www.flickr.com/photos/nelowe/11842699184/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/nelowe/11842846884/ There are two, one very apparent and another less so above, to be honest when I first saw them they looked like pimples (bacteria).
