  • My goldfish started acting up a few weeks in to Feb he was laying upside down with his face on the bottom. I did a fasting for 3 days then peas still didn't help. Then I stayed up for 48 hours and I noticed that when the light was turned off he was laying normally like fish should when sleeping. I shined my iphone light to the tank and moments later noticed he was upside down so I turned it off. I then be began to watch tv then noticed he was right side up. As it gets close to bed time he goes upside down till the light turns off. During the day he will float normally and swim normally like a healthy fish should. He seems healthy and happy but when it gets time for bed and it is dark in my room he turns upside down till all lights have been turned off.

Hi GMaiden,  I'm sorry your fish is ill. Some pictures and/or a video of the behaviour would help the moderators assess his condition.

I don't know those at the moment when I get my test kit in I will let you know. There was a huge snow storm that came and we haven't been anywhere in weeks.

Yes, that looks to me like a swim bladder problem, like I let you know about on the other thread you posted video on. The Mod Team has the overruling decision here, though, so wait for confirmation.
 

 

Do you have any idea as to when the test kit will arrive?

Now it's all about determining the cause and how to manage the problem.

Not for sure I haven't been able to purchase it. I hope tomorrow I will get too order it.
