"We have a comet-tail gold fish, approx. 5 to 6 years old. She (we think) is just lying on the bottom of the tank near some cover, almost like she's looking for cover. Compared to her normal activity, she looks lethargic. Her dorsal fin is flat and she is lying flat on the rock. This is a fish that is usually very interactive with us. A couple of weeks ago we started changing her water more frequently (our bad, we didn't know) and, subsequently, her pH is more appropriate and the amount of nitrogen in the water has been decreased. She has some opacity toward the forward parts of both eyes, although the right eye had this prior to the water changes (distilled water) and the left eye has become affected, also. But, the opacities seem to be getting better, as they are smaller and thinner. Please advise. She's a much-loved member of our "extended" family. Thank you in advance."
