    What are the parameters of the water?
    What size is the tank?
    How many other fish are with this one?

    Seems some serious problem with water parameters , you can change 30-40% water and add seachem stress guard ...

    Oh and do not net the fish or disturb it too much , the shock might be too much for it to handle

    It’s a 30 gal, he is alone , and I’m going to do the parameters now, although I tested it two nights ago and it was all normal ): there is a small algae bloom in the tank but I don’t think that hurts the fish , right?

    What kind of goldfish? Fancy or single tailed? I agree with doing a large water change, unless your pipes were recently flushed/cleaned
