Question
Im sure my goldfish swallowed something he shouldnt. Yesturday i fed my goldfish ( outdoor, in ground )as i droped the food in i noticed a foating seed or something and before i could get it out in the feeding frenzy one off my large fish had to swallow it. And too day i find him not well, what can i do if anything too help him pass what ever it was that he swallowed? Thankyou.

Answer
Can you possibly take him out, put him a large tub with the pond water, and bring the goldfish inside for a physical examination? Often times you can feed him peas but if its a solid object there is very little you can do for it.

Most goldfish ponds have thin nets over them to protect them from objects, trash, and critters.

My knowledge of fish ranges from freshwater and saltwater fish compatibility and care from easy livebearers to monster fish. I can help you set up a simple freshwater aquarium to a complicated reef tank. I would be pleased to assist anyone who is new to the aquarium hobby.

Experience

I have been in the aquarium hobby for eight years mostly dealing with large and small aquariums. I keep mostly monster fish (Arowana's, Large Cichlids; Oscars, and freshwater/saltwater eels specifically) but now that I am in college I am keeping a 30 gallon tropical community and a 45 gallon brackish aquarium while my father tends to the big monsters I left behind.

Organizations
I'm on YouTube! My 30 gallon community posts are the only ones that are up so far. My Brackish tank is next! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3gedHZNmWY28o0-o40nEpA/videos?view=0&flow=grid I'm on Yahoo Answers: http://answers.yahoo.com/my-activity

Education/Credentials
I am currently in college aiming for a job in Marine Biology.
