hi all! i need urgent help! i bought a beautiful Red & White Oranda 3 days ago. but since i have bought it, it has eaten just once. it doesn't swim around at all, just keeps lying at the bottom the whole day, despite the other goldfish coaxing it to swim. also it seems to be breathing only thru one gill (highly peculiar, i havent seen that before) plz plz plz help!!!! i dont want my fish to die sad.gif

good_very.gif good news! this morning i noticed my Oranda was swimming with all the other fish! when i fed them, it came up and ate a few pellets! biggrin.gif i guess thats an encouraging start. even now, its swimming around, no more stationary. but it still seems to be using just one gill to breath. cud someone throw more light on this?? fish2.gif
