You're more apt to get help posting your problem in the right forum so I moved your post from the introduction thread to here.

Welcome to AC.

It sounds as your goldfish has pop eye. You may need to use an antibacterial medication or possibly a combination of Melafix/Primafix.

Sounds like popeye to me, which is caused by a gram-negative bacteria. Tetracycline should cure it.
