    I came home today to find one of my shubunkins floating dead in my pond.

    It's belly was a bit swollen, but was also greyish (under the scales). The shubunkin's belly is normally white.

    Any ideas what it might have been that killed it? It had been in there 3 years...

    i have no idea.

    if you have the equipment, you can do a real autopsy. you just need a microscope set. take a sample of the fishes skin coating, and look at it under the microscope. theres pictures online that tell in a fish autopsy whats normal and whats not normal

    Gosh! Speaking about goldfish, There's this goldfish in a pond where I work at. It has been swimming vertically for quite sometime. It's stomache is bloated too! Then one day, I noticed that it stopped swimming and now it's just floating upsidedown! It has been like this for weeks! Poor thing....Sometimes I feel like ending its misery...
    Regards,
    KcEE

    Wow!
    Online autopsy photos and help? Cool!

    My dad was a doctor, he's got a nice microscope but he won't let anyone unworthy borrow it
    No autposy for me.

    I thought it was just bloat, but there seemed to be something unusual about it. Anyway, I have removed it from the pond, the other 7 are still zooming around and were really hungry this morning due to the upcoming storm, so at least it seems to be an isolated incident.

    Thanks all!

    if the other fish are acting normal, i dont think a autopsy is necessary. only if all of the other fish act weird is a autopsy needed.

    mainly, autopsies can tell you if the disease is gram-negative or gram-positive disease, which is good enough to know which meds you need.

    I was watering the garden this morning - and a storm was abating - the other 7 were zooming around, mating and looking for food...

    I think it was just his time.
