THREE Clear Globes over my fish's eye!! Help.
« on: July 19, 2013, 02:08:24 AM »

My goldfish had a clear globe-like thing over his eye for years. Then a smaller globe developed inside the first globe. Now, a new, bigger globe thing has developed. It's not cloudy like the POP-eye pictures I see online. Now my fish just floats, sometimes in the middle of the tank, sometimes on the top, and then at times, he is on the floor in the corner. Until recently, he has always eaten. Now, I don't think he is eating at all.  Ideas?

How   often do you carry out water changes, and how much water do you change?
What sort of water treatment do you use?

The vast majority of goldfish health issues are down to poor water quality.

You should immediately change out half of the tank water and add double dose of PRIME, repeat after two days. Carry out thsi routine until you see an improvement in health.
