Why does my goldfishes like gulping on the surface?
This is so weird, every time i go back to the my goldfishes, they go on to the surface and gulps on the water. And when every time im not there and i take a glance at it, it goes below water. The thing is, when ever i walk back there and lay there, and watch them, couple minutes later, they just comes up to the surface and gulps on something. But there's nothing to gulp on. Are they hungry ? So, i feed them and they come quickly as possible and eats em' all. Then, i thought they're still hungry, so i feed them alittle bit more.. the samething happened. Can you guys please tell me what's happening ? :/
You necessitate to get an airstone and pump for them. There is not enough oxygen in the wet for them, so they are getting it from the surface. That the problem with fish kept in an uncirculated bowl.
only nurture once a day.
if they gulp even if youre not in attendance it could be (as people have mentioned) because of low oxygen levels surrounded by the water or because of poor water quality. whether youre not already, do a 20% water change and carry on doing this weekly whether you can, have your water tested to see if the amonia nitrite or nitrate level are too high. all good adjectives stores should offer this service.
hope this helps.
