amanda, first off welcome to koko's!

secondly, can you answer as many of these questions as possible?

[*]Test Results for the Following:

Ammonia Level?

Nitrite Level?

Nitrate level?

Ph Level, (If possible,KH and GH and chloramines)?

Ph Level (KH/GH) out of the Tap?

Brand of test-kit used? (strips or drops?)

[*]Tank size (How many Gals) and How long has it been running?

[*]What is the name and size of the filter/s?

[*]How often do you change the water and how much?

[*]How many fish in the tank and their size?

[*]What kind of water additives or conditioners?

[*]Any medications added to the tank?

[*]Add any new fish to the tank?

[*]What do you feed your fish?

[*]Any unusual findings on the fish such as

"grains of salt",

bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?

[*]Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating,ect..?

it's very difficult to diagnose what may be wrong with your goldfish without some good background information on your tank, set up, and water quality. if you don't have a test kit for your water yet, i would highly recommend purchasing one so you can keep track of the water quality yourself. in the meantime, you can take a sample of your water to the local fish store and have them write down the parameters. :)

hope to hear back from you soon!
