"Hey I have a 2 1/2' 9month old London Shubunkin.. We bought him/her in July was sold to us as a 5month old.. We put in into an already established tank with a common goldfish and 9 little/mini red minnows and a few others not sure of there naming.. Basically the Shubunkin was chasing the common yellow goldfish around.. Looked as though he was pushing her/him about... (We changed the tank around before adding our new fish, so the habitat would be different for all of them ) basically after a couple weeks the little ones started dying off ... And we noticed the shubunkin has an abnormal growth under his belly where he poops from.. It's very weird looks like a prolapse?!?! So we bought him a new tank (the nemo ward we call it) and transferred him into the new tank once it was ready (two weeks after it was up and running with filter) the little fish kept dying off ( still not sure if it was because the fish were old and due to natural causes or because of disease..). I tried everything there was no sign of actual disease in the fish and the common goldfish is fine .. I now have two red minnows left in the tank with the common yellow goldfish and the bully shubunkin is in a tank by himself and his behaviour is becoming more alarming.. Rubbing against tank objects.( has now stopped this (haven't seen him do it in a while). Once he moved the filter a good few inches.. And was swimming into the bubbles coming out of the filter for hours when first moved into the tank.. He seemed to settle and now For the last week he has been very scared and jumpy ...What is wrong with him? I follow all the rules that I am aware off water changes .. Cleaning the filter.. General tonic etc .. Please help!! Also he ate a Hong Kong cleaner I put into the tank :( .. I can't keep on watching them die.. I have brought numerous books .. But none have helped ... Please any advice?!?! Ta"
