Hello guys, I have recently bought a new goldfish and put it into the quarantine tank (which is 4 gallon big (or small )). From the first day I have noticed that he was making white poop. Also, the fish had issues maintaining an orizontal position when relaxed, he kept getting onto his head or even on his back (like in the image below): He doesn't seem too stressed about that though. And can swim correctly(?) when feeding for example or when not feeling lazy (my guess). At first i've treated him for an internal bacterial infection, due to the awkward swimming: https://www.sera.de/en/products/in_category/ornamental-fish-treatments-335/product/sera-baktopur-direct.html No change after 3-4 days. Then i read some threads on this forum and feeded him only peas for 4 days. Fasted him for a week.after. Still no change. Tried to diagnose him using http://www.jbl.de/en/online-hospital Seemed to me to be intestinal parasites now (used fish sick and fish not eating as selections, though the fish does eat...) Used this for 8 days: http://www.jbl.de/?lang=en&mod=products&func=detail&id=5573 I'm at the end of this treatment. There have passed 3 weeks + since I bought and quarantined him. I'm doing 50% water changes every 2-3 days. Feeding every 2 days 1 pea. Fish seems to have lost a little weight but might be due to the 1 week fast. It has normal appetite. Still poops white. Still floats. Doesn't seem to be affected by the floating Was thinking to try the other product they recommend now: http://www.jbl.de/?lang=en&mod=products&func=detail&id=5569 but tought I might ask here first. So any advice you guys have, would be appreciated. (pls mind that I live in europe and don't have access to your u.s.a. medications. jbl are the most easy to get here) thanks, radu
