He looks cute.
The torn fins could be a case of fin rot. It must be treated. Is this your hospital tank you keep him in?
Treat with Pimafix, Melafix according to bottle instructions. But you may need some stronger medication too.

How is your waterquality? pH Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate?

Hi Hanna,

Yes, this is a quarantine tank. I change water everyday so no much issue on ph nitrate etc. I would like to thank you for the given advice regarding fin rot and compliment, I will take note.  Cheesy

Will you please put him into a proper tank soon? Judging from his size he might need something between 15-20 gallons.

They are sold in the local pet shop here at least Smiley They'll probably have them at some shop around your place if you'll go have a look! Smiley

Hmm I've never seen one but maybe I haven't had a good enough look. I really like them, maybe I'll check out ebay.

What an adorable fish! Have you named this handsome beauty yet? So nice to see how well it is recovering since coming into your care. Do you keep other goldfish too? Where did you get your hospital tank?
