    That's pretty much perfect for a goldfish.

    Comets like water temps 65 to 72 degrees

    I think thats a fine temp for a comet. For a little perspective, mine live in an outdoor pond that freezes over a couple of times through the winter, obviously I have to break the ice for them though. ;)

    His dorsal fin is down is that normal he was thrashing into the sand and filter then he swims normally my sister in law who had him for 2 years in a 10 gallon said he always has his dorsal fin down and he was always laying down on her gravel after almost a week in his new home he was starting to swim around with his dorsal fin out but today he started acting weird all water parameters are ok
