Mouth Rot

Recommended Posts

Hi all. 

We've recently started looking after goldfish, we have three small fancy goldfish in a 58lr tank. Originally in a 15ltr but moved within a day. 

One fish was bullying and nipping the others resulting in one fish loosing part of his mouth. The bully fish has been removed however we've noticed the mouth has worsened.

The fish shop suggested using eSHa2000 treatment. However on day two all the fish have now remained at the top of the tank. I've done a 40/50% water change but the fish are still at the top.

I'm worried they're now either dying or poisoNed.
