I also forgot to mention if you didn't already know, you have to be a bit more carful when feeding fancy goldfish, there more prone to bloat or SBD then the long bodied goldfish. This is because all of their organs are a lot closer and compacted in their body.

Id also suggest maybe lowering the temp a little, although fancy's do a little better in tropical temp (not high) at least in my opinion 75 is a bit high for them. They still are coldwater fish. I would try to stick with 72-73 the highest.

Alright, thanks so much for the help, but I don't think he'll make it. My mom is refusing to buy any more products. She said "We've done enough to save the fish" >:(

That sucks. But in my honest opinion I think he might be at the end of his road, 5 years is a relative average for fish like him. But im sure he's glad you gave him a good home.
