I was wondering if anybody could help by sending me some of the silver? The website I've ordered it from doesn't actually seem to be working, I've ordered twice now but no money has been taken out of my account. I can't seem to find the silver anywhere here in the UK. I will happily pay whatever it costs to post it to me.

Excellent, just managed to get some. My fish are behaving so weird today, all 5 of them piled onto of each other in the corner. Same fish still tilted to the side and one fish is now flashing on the tank sides ????

Interesting can you test the gh too

I'll do that tomorrow. Have you got any thoughts on what it might be?

It's so strange because come last afternoon/evening time they become active and behaviour like normal healthy fish. Then when the morning comes they just sit around all gloomy again.

Ok hun... I would like you to take out the logs and ornaments in there. Reason I would like you to have a just goldfish tank, so we can figure this all out.. It could be the logs or ornaments or some thing else, but if we put the tank just to fish we can eliminate the other issues if it was those :)

So everything is out of the tank. Fish seem much the same, I've got my silver today in the post, it's a spray type bottle, does that change how much I use?

Nope you just need an eye dropper :)

0 improvement with goldfish. Sebastian is the best one of the lot, swimming around a fair bit, the others just huddle in the same corner for 90 % of the day. I'm thinking maybe it's the flow from my filter, we have eliminated everything else, what else could it be?
