Being prey fish, goldfish can easily become stressed; this is normal, but after the scare is over, they should calm down within moments. Some fish become overly excited in certain situations, darting through the water; crashing into decorations or even the side walls of its container. Although these fish are exhibiting stress, moving them could increase the amount of stress they’re experiencing. These fish will benefit from a tonic which is performed in the main tank or pond

Even if we’re cautious with our fish and their environment, using great care with their maintenance and handling; even if we’ve created a safe habitat for them; accidents happen. Many a fish have been injured on a sharp decoration, or stuck in a filter, or even sucked up a gravel vacuum. Many a fish have been dropped on the floor, or jumped from its tank or pond
