Fish stays still in tank, but looks healthy

Recommended Posts

    • * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0
    • * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0
    • * Nitrate level(Tank) 0
    • * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 7.5
    • Other Required Info:
      • * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API drops
      • * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 55 gal, 2 years
      • * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? marineland 50 (i think) and aqueon 55
      • * How often do you change the water and how much? every 4 days, 90%
  • * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 3 days ago, 90%
  • * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2, large
  • * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime
  • * What do you feed your fish and how often? flakes once a day, but for the past 2 days I've been feeding peas
  • * Any new fish added to the tank? no
  • * Any medications added to the tank? no
  • * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. none in the past year
  • * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? nothing new, but she's had cloudy eyes/cataract for about a year now. 
  • * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? She isn't moving around much, kind of floats in the tank in the same spot, in the middle of the right side of the tank. she eats whenever she senses food around her, pretty active when there's food around. But throughout the entire day, the other fish scavenges around throughout the day, but the sick fish is just there...  Her head kind of points downwards, but she still has her balance. No physical signs of disease (besides eyes).
  • Any help would be appreciated!

What kind of flakes do you feed?

 

List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. none in the past year.  What before that?

 

 Please post some pictures of the sick fish.  Include at least one from the top.  Also include a full tank shot.

I feed tetrafin goldfish flakes, and in the past I used aquarium salt. Please let me know if you can access the images

You need to upload the pictures to a hosting site like photobucket or imgur and use the link it gives you to post

Are the pictures clear enough? My fish has been doing this for a while now and I just started feeding again after not feeding for 3 days.
