I got my oranda goldfish last week and he is living in a 20 gallon tank with everything he need. The water quality and everything is fine but ever since i got him he's been sitting at the bottom of the tank and will only act normal when it's feeding time. I've tried the peas for swim bladder but they don't work. he also has some red in his wen. Can someone please help me ASAP
