    Hi,

    One of my goldfish has been lying at the bottom of the tank all day, moving around now and and again with spasming but the other goldfish is swimming around fine even trying to pick up the other fish... I have done a 50% water change today, it perked up a little but is now back to the bottom.

    Any help please??

    Thanks in advance

    both of my goldfish just lay at the bottom together and chill... my params are 0, 0, 5 in the tank and it's fully cycled and established. no heater no chiller... tank is at room temp. When I come in the room to feed, they swim all around catching the flakes... i dont know why mine do that but they like to lay down all the time... are they lazy? lol.

    in for others to give answers... im interested too

    I strongly suggest you get the API Master Test Kit from your local fish store immediately and check the parameters.... ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. That will give us a good indication of what is going on... I'm thinking it may be new tank syndrome. You probably have an ammonia spike going on from a noncycled tank.

    One hurting fish isn't enough?

    Read this sticky about cycling with fish.

    Just get the kit. You need the information it can give you.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
