As I said to you t'other day, sounds like the poor little thing is stressed - may well have had a heart attack. It sounds like it wasn't bought from the best stock in the first place, then if it suffered a long journey home as well, it hasn't got much of a chance.
It could have swimbladder issues, but sounds more like a stress-induced heart attack.
Let us know how it got on though /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hi Amy. Congrats on the first ever fish-related post here! Can you supply any of the following bits of info, as it would help with a diagnosis:
- What form of gold fish is it? Is it the standard shape or one of the 'fancy' rounded varieties?
- How long has the tank been set up for?
- Was the filter matured before any fish were added?
- Did your friend add any chemical products to the raw tapwater?
- How long was the fish in the bag for?
- Was the fish acclimatised to the new tank or just thrown straight in when it was brought home?
- Is it swimming normally now?

Hey /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
It's a normal looking goldfish, yellow colour. Tank was just setup the night before, think she added dechlorinator that the shop provided.
Fish was in the bag for quite a while, fairly long metro journey back.
It seems to be ok now! /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> Still alive /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
