Just an update! Worf is much better now his lumps are all gone, he is eating better and he is much more lively! I am just going to keep him in the hospital tank over christmas give it a water change and s bit more salt treatment just to make sure before I put him back with the other fish! Other than the colour change he is pretty much the old Worf I knew and loved! Thank you everyone for your help! X

I will put some pictures up after Christmas might only be of Worf, Daryl and Flash though. Klaus and Roger seem to be camera shy! Lol! X Grin

Ok so I tried pitting Worf back in with the others and Daryl kept attacking him, so I put him back into the other tank! I went out today and got him some ornaments and a bubble statue with a pump to give him more oxygen as was suggested to me. I checked on him when I came to bed and he was caught in the statue upside down. I got him out of it and he keeps leaning over to the left and favouring his left fin. He keeps trying to swim and right himself but I am worried, he is my favourite fish will he survive this or is it the end for him? Has anyone else had a situation likes this?  Cry

Air stones are purely ornamental in nature, a power filter should on its own be able to oxygenate the tank just enough. An air stone may also make the goldfish swallow unintentional air.

Do you see anything else on him? Any wounds, fungus, spots..? Anything unnatural at all?
I'd try keeping him in the quarantine tank with a bit of salt, good water quality and food. It's really hard to tell what could be wrong with him this time Undecided

Did Daryl try to attack any particular part of Worf? Or just generally all over?

Could it be his swim bladder Nossie? If his leaning to one side?

It's not a stone, it's one of the ornaments that bubble he got caught under the base of it. Daryl was attacking the middle of his left side.

Skwishee: No, fish just generally stop being able to control themselves in the water once they're enough hurt. My Samurai was about to suffocate the other day, but I managed to get whatever was blocking his gills out. Before I managed he was almost on his side as well.

Vicloz: I'm really sorry for your loss Sad But when a fish will flip or just lay in place, it's usually not much you can do Sad

Is there anywhere I can put them on here or is it fish only?
