New Goldfish sometimes sitting at bottom of tank #1
Hello. I’ve not been on this forum for quite a few years as had my last goldfish for 9 years. Nearly four weeks ago I purchased a small goldfish (only fish in the tank). Three weeks after we got him I found him at the bottom of the tank (also swimming sometimes) so I did a 50% water change and have fed pea for the last few days. Only four days later, he is at the bottom again (and swimming). Do I don another water change? If so, do I siphon the tank again or can I just get some water out and put new in? Also is it ok to feed a small fish flakes? I am give 2 or 3 tiny flakes (or pea). Sometime I worry i am not giving enough and sometimes I worry it is too much!

Re: Interpret Gold Disease Safe #4
Hi Violet. Apologies for not answering your questions on your last post. Yes I do use dechlorinater and make water changes every two weeks. I will look into the storage box ideas. Thanks for your welcoming words Jellybean.

Re: Interpret Gold Disease Safe #5
Many thanks for replying Violet and Jellybean. I do only have one fish in the tank, but wondered if I could add another if anything happened to this one. However, I have taken on board the advice about the size of the tank. The fish doesn't have any obvious symptoms, just sitting at the bottom of the tank.

Re: Interpret Gold Disease Safe #6
Hi. Many thanks for your reply. The tank size is 19 ltrs. I am sorry, but I cannot remember the name of the filter, but it is not an under gravel one. The tank has been set up for 6 years. I changed the water yesterday - about half of the tank. There is one goldfish in the tank, who is about 3 years old (who has been sitting at the bottom of the tank for 2 days) . No plants or ornaments added in ages. Medications added are the Interpret Disease Safe and some salt (salt added yesterday after the water change). I have not done any water readings yet. Any help would be much appreciated.
