so if your fish is floating for a long period of time, nine times out of ten that means it's dead, right? well, my black moor goldfish has been floating belly up for about two months now. he can still eat and swim and defacate, just all while he struggles to turn himself right side up. recently I've noticed a growing lump near his anus. the slime coat is starting to wear off the belly as well. I changed he take water the very first day I noticed him floating. he lives with a fantail goldfish and the fantail is completely fine. what is wrong and how do I help? I hate watching him struggle
