i know this sounds like a stupid question but i’m worries and don’t know what to do!! 

i bought 4 goldfish yesterday and they all seem to be fine so i don’t think it’s a water issue

however my little black fish dolly is being really weird, staying at the bottom of the tank (usually in far corner) floating upside down/on her side, very jerky movements and erratic twitches etc, sometimes doing a random v fast jerky loop the loop thing, 

am i doing something wrong? is she just adjusting to her new environment? it doesn’t seem very normal :( 

im very worried any advice appreciated

forgot to add, she has extremely bulbous eyes (like OUT her head) and what i can only describe as a pot belly?? from the same tank as the other fishies, could these be signs of physical disability? i got her cos i thought it was kinda cute but idk 😕

The eyes and pot belly are just characteristics of your fish, which sounds like a black moor by your description
