ipou 11 years old fantail dying?

Recommended Posts

Hello, last time ive post for Ipou Dnalex help alot.

My fantail goldfish, oldest one is doing really bad.  She has one pop eyes for at least 3 months now. I didnt worry much has I’ve been told that it could be just a pocket of air behind her eyes.  She also been moving alot less for 6 months, have a hard time not staying at the bottom, she can’t swim ,she just move with her belly,but ive attribute it to her age. 6 days ago a part of her tail bled and the next day the part where it bled fell down. The problem is since 2 days she had her dorsal fins staying low and shes abit laying more on one side of her body.  It looks like her body his shutting down, she actually looks sad, she still comes to see me and stays close to me ( i caress her through the window, i know sounds weird but she seems to like that, i have a bond with her, she used to do spiral when i was coming to see her like a wagging dog🥰) she seems very bloated..Did  I misinterpreted her age for a disease? Is it too late? I have 150 gallons with her and 8 of her babies that are about five years now.

 

she also have just notice now one small clear bubble on her tail...she is so bloated and looks overweight. Ive put a picture that shows her blottiness, low dorsal fin and pop eye. I’ve added salt 30 teaspoons just an hour ago. Ive ordered metroplex, kanaplex  and prazipro in case I would needed.

Ive been feeding my fish green peas for 2 days

Crossing my fingers

thanks
