not sure y they keep dying
« on: March 14, 2009, 09:26:53 PM »

I bought two fantail goldfish and brought one to my new place from my moms house. Both of the fish that i bought have died but the other one seems just fine. The problem is I don't know why they died, as they both seemed totally healthy and then went dowhill and died very quickly. The two that died did have Ich but it was treated and appeared to have gone away. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why my fish died?

My guess is that the goldfish you recently bought were already sick at the petstore. Most of the time the store workers will remove the dead fish before the customers see them, but it has probably already infected the rest of the fish in the tank. Now if you were to buy two fish from that same tank , then sooner or later those fish would become sick and perhaps die too.

I would keep an eye on the healthy fish you brought from your mother's house to see if it shows any sign of illness if it is in the same tank as the two dead fish.

Another thing you can do is get the water tested to see if there are dangerous levels of chemicals in there, such as ammonia, nitrate, etc.  Some pet stores will test the water for you free if you bring a sample of it in to them.

Yes , goldfish (all fish in general) can get sick just like human beings. They can become vulnerable to viruses, bacteria , fungus, and even parasites, so it's essential to keep their water filtered and clean and free of diseases.
