goldfish looking bloated
« on: October 12, 2008, 08:08:50 PM »

One of my goldfish looks bloated and has lumps on it's sides.  They are not open or red.  It is still swimming and eating a little.  I am not sure what to do.

We have had these goldfish since last Thanksgiving.  They had Ick shortly after I got them.  I treated them and they have seemed fine since.  The other 3 fish in the tank look ok so I have taken the one fish out. 

I have searched the internet but I haven't found out what is wrong with this fish.  Can you help me?

Thanks

Hi Turner11,

 Lumpy goldfish may be a sign of overfeeding or diet issues.  Goldfish need extremely good water conditions and a good diet to thrive.  If you want your fish to thrive, make sure that the you have optimum water conditions and you are feeding your fish on a "slimfast" diet.

I have sucessfully saved an overfed fish by not feeding for 2 days, then feeding a skinned, thawed frozen pea to get things moving (less than a whole one per feeding for a tiny fantail) on day 4 start feeding sparingly with frozen brine shrimp from your pet store if you can get any. I wish you well, Hang in there, little fish!

Also, make sure your water quality is perfect- he's already vulnerable now.

How can you tell if your goldfish is pregnant?
