My goldfish Neo is a werid fish?

Recommended Posts

So I have done some observations on my goldfish the past 48 hours. I may seem crazy but yes I did stay up for 48 hours just to see the behavior of my goldfish and I have coconclude a few things. Most on here know that my goldfish has a swimming problem but I have been watching him and it seems like at night when we are all getting ready for bed he sleeps upside down but when the lights which off he floats like a normal fish should. Well I wanted to see if maybe it was light well I turned on my cameras light and within a few mins he was upside down again. Then he was back to normal after I took the light away. Its werid? I have never heard of this in the goldfish comminty. I don't think he has swim bladder issues. I never really watched him like this before after I turned off his light I would go to bed so I never seen him do this. Its crazy.

Also I was wondering should I treat him for floating and make the agar agar food or not and if so should I use fresh foods or baby food or both Im not sure what to feed him for this if there is anything to feed him to make it better.

Thanks in advance for the advice!!????

At night they try to resist movement and rest in one spot above the substrate, only keeping their balance in one area of the tank during rest.

Since your fish is already floaty, at night he relaxes his movements instinctively and his body flips him over. :idont

But he dose stay in one stop when the light is turned off its just when the light is one and it is getting close for it to be turned off that he is upside down.

  • My goldfish started acting up a few weeks in to Feb he was laying upside down with his face on the bottom. I did a fasting for 3 days then peas still didn't help. Then I stayed up for 48 hours and I noticed that when the light was turned off he was laying normally like fish should when sleeping. I shined my iphone light to the tank and moments later noticed he was upside down so I turned it off. I then be began to watch tv then noticed he was right side up. As it gets close to bed time he goes upside down till the light turns off. During the day he will float normally and swim normally like a healthy fish should. He seems healthy and happy but when it gets time for bed and it is dark in my room he turns upside down till all lights have been turned off.

I've locked this thread because apparently there is another thread on the same fish.
