    If the tank was cycled before then its still cycled now, as long as you didnt kill off your bb with out knowing it. The bioload would just be lower. I hope you have a decent sized tank.for those guys

    The most likely problem is water quality. In adequate water changes, the tank being too small, under-powered filtration, and low quality food could all be an issue.
    What is the tank size?
    How long have you had the goldfish?
    How big are they now?
    What is the usual water change schedule?
    What is the nitrate concentration?
    What filtration is on the tank?
    Do you have an air pump on the tank?
    What do you feed?

    width 40cm lenght 20 cm
    2 years
    the black moore and veiltail i guess its 15 inches and 10 inches the smallest one
    i perform 25 percent water change every week but if seems i need to change i do change it
    the nitrate concentration i dont know and im making a research about those things
    my filtration sucks im planning to buy a new aquarium and get a canister filter
    i put air pump in my tank since im suspecting something is pestering my tank
    i feed them tetra fin for goldfish and follow 2 mins rule 2x a day

    Aya. Links pasted here from facebook will not work.

    You can find instructions on how to post images here


    You said that your tank is 40 centimeters long, and your fish is 15 inches. These are both the same size. You can understand why members here are skeptical about your post since that fish would not survive for long in a tank that size. Please be clearer with your responses and post photos or we will have to assume that you are trolling.
