The tank is 70ltrs (Hagen Tropiquarium 68).
Currently, after the recent water change the temperature is 19 degrees celsius, however this will fall to between 13-15 approx. My goldfish is a comet (I believe), he's 5 y.o.
So rule out Salt usage?
Just an update on this...i've just done a 50% water change on the tank and also added 12ml of Interpet Ammonia Remover to the tank.
So far, my fish is still huddled in the corner so no immediate improvement but I am concerned that I will have to look at other avenues of treatment as the readings don't seem to be flagging anything up. Would that be a fair comment?
Do I need to be looking at other ailments that cause this behaviour? Diet? Maybe treatment through antibiotics?
Here are some pics I took during and after water change:
Cheers for your help.

He needs a better home. That tank is not large enough and this will forever be an uphill battle with no way of reaching the top with that fish in that setup.Aquarist since 1995
