Goldfish laying down on the bottom

Recommended Posts

I've got two fancy goldfish, one orange and a red cap and they are 2,5/3 years old.

The tank I have is 120 liters. Many people told me it is to small, fish will die, etc. Meanwhile I had mutiple times goldfish eggs and even tiny youngsters!

I bought myself a male (orange) and female (red cape)

The orange one is still behaving like it should but the red cap is laying on her belly a lot of time.

It eats perfectly and if she swims I didn't see anything strange.

Doing water changes doesn't effect the behavior. Also adding medicine, like Esha 2000 doesn't change a thing.
