As some may know Decade is a little ------- that ended up in my tank. Summery of this would be him going from a 6 gallon round bowl to a 1/2, and even a failed attempt to join a tank with someone elses betta and getting it's tail beat, back to the 1/2 gallon for a few weeks then into my tank cause he wasn't wanted no more. Now he's been missing quite a few scales and had some indentations on him but it seemed nothing seemed wrong. Time is passed he's getting along and now he's acting like one of the minnows. However the kid noticed what I was taking for grated.
"What's wrong with Ponyo?"
Ponyo being the goldfish's old name. I don't like it it's sticking as Decade as long as it's in my tank. Anyways left side of the goldfish minus a few scales looks like a normal goldfish. The right side of the goldfish about where it bends its body to turn is a large indentation. I would take a picture but my camera isn't fast enough to catch the bugger. It litterally looks like one side of the fish is caving in. It was not this bad back in December, and it's been a week now and it looks about the same.
As soon as the flakes start sinking it's like 4 Paranas after a nice steak. Plants are also well victimized so I know the bugger is eating.
So is this normal for common goldfish or something I need to watch a bit more.
