    I have 3 goldfish and yesterday I started noticing one of them was floating upside down on the bottom of the tank. He was still moving his gills and his mouth and swimming around from time to time but today’s he’s not really moving and he’s laying on the bottom again. He looks like he’s dead so I go to take the net and get him out but when I get the net near him he starts to move his gills. My other fish are perfectly fine and I haven’t done anything new to the tank recently. What should I do? I know this is a silly question but I got these fish for my toddler almost 2 years ago and I’ve gotten attached to the little fellas. I also don’t want the other fish to eat him.

  • Aside from fish, what is the most low maintenance house pet?

    Best answer: I would say birds
    You still need to clean their poop occasionally but most people keep them in cages so it's easy

  • I've had my rescue goldfish for 4 years now. He's not looking too good. The first 2 times that I found him on the bottom..?

    Best answer: To say it's lived for 4 years and possibly longer seeing as it's rescued is impressive. Fish tend not to have very long lives and they could possibly be passing away, but know you gave it a great life and they're ready to move on to what comes after.

  • Is this a copperhead or a water snake?

    Is this a copperhead or a water snake?

    Best answer: Too dark to be a copperhead. Not enough detail to tell, if it is a water moccasin or a water snake. Mocassins have thick bodies and the tail tapers down fast. Water snakes have more slender bodies and more gradually tapering tails. Both have triangular heads, but water snakes eyes have round pupils while moccasins... show more

    Only two days ago I purchased 3 different types of goldfish that all now live in the same bowl. 2 of them seem to be very happy swimming around but the other one is gasping for air at the surface. If there was an issue wouldn t all of them be suffering compared to one?

I was going to go ahead and clean out the tank; such as taking the fish out, putting him into some room temperature tap-water while I clean out the tank. After some research, I found out that, even in a couple of minutes, tap-water can seriously harm the fish. I was wondering, will he be fine if I put him into the tap water while I clean out the tank, or is there a better way to do so?

    Okay so my friends Betta fish just died unfortunately, I know a lot about fish but I'm honestly stumped on this one, I have a couple guesses but need some other fish expert opinions. I'll attach photos as well. Okay so this little guy was full of color and life 24 hours ago (she's had him for about two weeks now), he was heavily inspected last night and there was nothing wrong with him. Then tonight he's dead on the bottom of the tank completely colorless with this white fuzzy stuff on his side's (which my guess is fungus) he also had white specks on his face and his fins were literally coming off, it was disgusting. But we are both so stumped because he was perfectly fine 24 hours ago and drastically changed so fast. The water reeked too, and yes it had just been cleaned. My best guess is the moss ball, I've heard of moss balls killing fish and especially Bettas before, upon pulling it out of the tank it did have a bunch of brown gooey splotches on it, so I'm wondering if it's rotting? Also the betta loved to sleep on the moss ball. It just doesn't make sense. I'm hoping someone on here can help? Link to photos of the fish https://photos.app.goo.gl/muRyNk1ShzCUM5... The colorful one is what he looked like 24 hours ago.
