Common Mistakes That Can Kill Your Fish

    well i have 3 goldfish that i have had for a few years. they seem to be very happy and entergetic! their all about the same size. although one is slightly smaller and today we noticed he was acting different. he seems to be resting on the bottom on top of the rocks, although he can still swim. ive gone over to the tank multiple times to check on him and he does get off the rocks and swim a little bit. but soon returns to the bottom or a corner and just lays there. he doesnt look ill, and is eyes are ok and not murkey or anyting. do you think hes sick?
