Floaty fish! =[

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, today I woke up and found two of my goldfish laying at the bottom of the pond floating backwards D:. I honestly thought they were dead, but when I was going to remove them they started swiming. I don't know what hapened to them, they were fine yesterday and today they are looking really bad. I have 8 goldfish in the pond, but only two seem to be sick. I have seperated the two into a 5 gal bucket. I'm going to buy salt for them. I don't know what else to do, I have never had this problem before. Any help/suggestions would be greatly apprediated.

Thanks

So sorry nobody has gotten round to seeing your thread!! Any updates on your pond fish?

Two key worrisome things in ponds in spring...oxygen levels and pH (algae) crashes. Can you test for both?

Hi Trinket, both fish seem to be getting better each day :D. I have checked the pH and it remains normal. I sure hope they are 100% better by next week.
