    There must be some sort of fungal or viral infection that is causing the fish to behave in that matter .

    I know you say the water is 100% and I'm not saying that it isn't, but could you give the Readings..? ALK, MAG, CAL, PH...etc..:blush:

    I've never owned a Goldie so hopefully you'll get better advice..:p..did a search and found on most Sites the mention of the "Territorial U-swim"...could it maybe be that..? I tried finding a clip of this "U-swim" but still haven't found one...hopefully someone has a Goldie and can say YAY or NAY..seeing as I haven't seen the U-swim, I can't confirm or deny if it looks the same...:blush:
