I just noticed this morning that my Oranda, Moor, and feeder has had some injuries at night. :( My moor has possible dropsy that can't be seen properly on my camera, my Oranda is bottom-sitting quite frequently and has a injured lip, and my feeder has a injured lip, and nothing else with my fish. I will get a picture of the injuries ASAP. They are still wanting food, as usual after I feed them.

We really need you water to be tested can you please bring some tank water and tap water to your local fish shop and have it tested please. Can you give me your deemensions or the tank and I can figure out the size. Also you need to do weekly water changes of 50% or more. Goldfish are highly dirty fish and need regular water changes and a big tank and 10times the filtration :)

Also can you get some pictures please of the sick fish?
