    I wouldn't clean my decorations every week. You need to allow for the beneficial bacteria to grow in your tank, and it grows on your decorations as well as your gravel and in your filter. If you're constantly cleaning your decorations, then you're killing off that bacteria. Does that make sense?

    If you're concerned about algae growth, you can see about getting a couple otos or a pleco (depending on your tank size). But, you do need to let that bacteria grow. I wouldn't do as much cleaning until you know for sure what's going on with your goldfish. Water changes are great - definitely do those!

    The bleach should be fine a slong as its only partly bleach. and if you let them dry out for a week. Though there is no ened to clean the decor unless you really want to. Only clean half the gravel at one time - to not kill off all the beneficial bacteria. Everything else sounds good.

    Yes this forum is awesome!

    I acquired my goldfish for 16years now and within the past 18-24 months it's back has arched and floats belly up on the surface and within the past 2 months black marks have started to appear over its fins and body and the scales have started to flair like a fir cone.

    This morning I went down to feed it and found it gulping for air at the bottom.
