Hi - We need all the usual stats to help you (tank size, filters, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, etc.) See the goldfish diagnosis and discussion section for the whole list.

Is it possible that there is stray current in your tank from a heater or powerhead or something? I think that can cause partial paralysis or kinking.

I agree with Kristen, sounds like a possible electric shock, could anything have caused this? Does it look like there's an actual bend in his spine?

I'm sorry to hear that :(

I think it may have been something else. I've had a lot of bad luck with gouramis and typically they'll go quickly like yours did.
