Hi, this is my friends goldfish, she has a 45x25x30 fish tank with 4 small goldfish (used to be 5, the 5th one died because of the same reasons) we don't know what might be wrong with him, or what is that is causing this. I don't know how to help her as i do not own any cold water fish. Please help !! (sorry for bad grammar english is not my first lenguage).

Hello and welcome!

It looks like the fish might have dropsy. Are those dimensions in inches? The tank may be overstocked. Ask your friend to have the water tested…..poor water quality is always suspect, and until that is resolved, there’s not really too much to do to help the fish.
