i noticed two days ago my one goldfish was swimming funny right after i did a water change. Water Ph is fine and so is the nitrates. Tank is cycled. She cant keep herself from floting upside down or get herself to swim at all. I have her in a net (cause i dont have a hospital tank)added antibotic for the first time today and stress coat cause i have to keep trying to keep her upright. Its day three of this , she is still alive and she still wants to eat i am hand feeding her . Is their any more i can do?

What is your water change routine? Did you drop the temp of the tank on the last one? High nitrates, colder water and a low fiber diet are some of the more common causes of rollover.

Keeping round-bodied GF at 74-76o and feeding fresh spinach and orange slices and other high fiber foods can relieve it, but sometimes the genetics are predisposed and people will get surgery done - if it is a high dollar show koi - or watch the fish slowly fade away. With ideal care, they can survive for some months.
