hmm. fantailer, I'm pretty sure it wasn't fin rot. Her fins were intact and perfect, but maybe something else

On one of the photos her body looks a tad unsymmetrical, which means that some internal infections are going on, either parasites or bacteria. And that's usually followed by swimming in an abnormal angle or even upside-down.
Sometimes the fins can look torn as well, but it's important NOT to focus on the smallest issue and treat the internal infection first. Usually you can easily treat both with medicated food and water treatment.

I would advise against using medications until water parameters are confirmed beyond a doubt. I know from personal experience that it can be disasterous to combine any kind of meds to unhealthy water conditions.

When my baby black moor Coal was suffering from ammonia poisoning he seemed to be very off balance as well as your Jenga. Torn/ragged fins are also a sign of this problem. Medications pushed him over the edge...a very sad experience.

The most common problem in all goldfish aquariums are usually poor water quality. In good water conditions with needs being met properly, it is usually harder to come across other problems such as disease and infection. If your water tests out perfectly, then and ONLY THEN should you try using medications I say.

I agree! It may also have been the frequent water changes that stressed her a bit Undecided Warm water is good, but frequent water changes in a tank with a weak fish are not Undecided So for next time, it may be good to get a small heater of some kind. I bought an emergency heater for 15 and it works just fine in the orb if I'll have any sick fish there Smiley It's like a flat plate that you attach with suction cups and plug like usual Cheesy

A hospital tank needs to be left alone as much as possible, aside from testing the water, observing the fish, giving food and adding treatments.
