Hi Jason - how is your fish doing now? I'm not good on ponds but I know a man who is so will make sure he sees your post I think his internet is a bit temperamental at the mo so he may not have seen your post yet
From experience of goldies, swimming on its side could indicate something amiss with the swimbladder which is the fish's balance organ. Can you just double check that he does he have any other symptoms such as red streaks in fins/tail, red patches on body, frayed fins/tail, fuzzy patches, cloudy eyes, swollen body (even slightly) or clamps his fins against his body?
