Could you get a photo of this fish? I want to see how bloated she is.

Also :welcome

I see that you have 7 goldfish in there. Goldfish need at least 20 gallons per fish. When you can please read this article. :)

I know your doing big water changes, but it will eventually led to bacteria issues. The reason I say this is goldfish are very dirty fish and will polute the water very fast and the filters. Then the bacteria builds up.

Are any of your other fish's showing signs of anything? What do you have in the tank for decorates.
