Goldfish curled

Goldfish curled to one side indicates the fish have been poisoned by nitrates. The third and final toxin to form in the nitrogen cycle, nitrates have claimed many of our fish’s lives. Toxin levels should never exceed 40 ppm, however, lower levels are preferred

Keeping plants in your tank or pond, and even encouraging the formation of algae will help keep nitrate levels at bay

Goldfish poisoned by nitrates require deep water to relieve the pressure caused by the toxin. Perform very small and very frequent water changes to reduce nitrates, keeping the water table as high as possible

Sadly, the first thing most fish keepers do is perform a huge water change. The low water table injures the fish further
