  3. Over the past week my pearscales tail has began to wither away. I tried increasing the tank temperature a little and also water changes every other day but he is showing no signs of improvement. Does anyone know what the best way to help him is?
  4. I was doing a wster change and i spotted this little thing hanging on a new moss ball i recently bought. I was wondering if anyone knew what is was.

    Does my goldfish have popeye?

    When i originally bought they fish i cant remember noticing the large eye, as soon as i got home i realised. so i doubt in the space of a 20 minute car joruney that this occured. Im pretty sure he is a telescope so maybe his small eye is the issue xD. So do you think i should go through the process of quarentine or just leave him for now if there is no popeye?

    Does my goldfish have popeye?

    If i added small quantities of salt to my tank would it stress my other healthy fish? Also ive noticed he was chasing the little fish around a lot however i thought they were playing to solve this I removed 2 of the fish from the tank so now there are only 2 fish which are similar-ish size so hopefully there isnt bullying issues i didnt realise goldfish could be so aggresive/teratorrial. Also if he does heal will the large eye shrink or just remain the same?

    Does my goldfish have popeye?

    I understand u say 20gal per fish but these are only just babies ofc when they do grow a lot i am planning on moving them in to a suitable tank for their size (50gal) like i said. I will start larger water changes but this isnt what im trying to get at. I did not quarentine as i bough it from a store so im assuming the wouldnt sell me a fish with an illnesses considering the amount i paid. And at the store i didnt notice the difference in size of his eye but maybe thats just me being oblivious. What im trying to get answered from the thread is what is wrong with the fish and what i should do, considering i just added him and my other fish show now signs of stress or other issues i dont think water quality is the problem.
