He was doing better for a few days when it got warmer then he started sinking again when it got cold again. Does anyone think maybe all these temp changes is making him sick? If so what can I do to make it easier for him. I do have him indoors but I can't control the thermostat. I was thinking maybe a heater could help. Any help or input is greatly appreachiated. Thanks in advance

I honestly doubt it has anything to do with temperatures but maybe buy a thermometer so you can monitor any changes? Goldfish are cold water so you don't need a heater...it could make things worse unless your house is seriously frigid.

It's been going up and down alot so I thought maybe the sudden tempature changes could've just stressed him out. it's warm sometimes hot in the day and cold at night. hmm. He was swimming around again but then started sinking again.

Do you have a thermometer, though? You should see exactly how much it's changing.

Gold fish are pretty tolerant as far as temperatures go (it's part of what makes them good pond fish).

That's a pretty big change...so yeah, maybe a heater would be good. Just set it to 65 or something.

I ended up putting them in a bigger tank for now, my bf's mom changed her mind about letting us build a pond in the back yard, so we got a bigger tank and put it in our room for now. When we move out on our own (which shouldn't be too far from now) I want to build a pond for them. But I have alot fo research to do before I get that far. I'm not sure if it'd be too hot in the summer or not, if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I see alot of goldfish in outdoor ponds here so I would think it'd be ok. Also since I am going to wait until we move out the pond will be more than 50 gallons.
