Nature’s way of relieving extreme stress and or pain; when a fish goes into shock due to trauma, their bodies release hormones that shut down bodily function. In most cases, a healthy fish recovers, but some fish are not so lucky. Causing low blood pressure that can sometimes lead to death, shock is common in goldfish. Fear has kept goldfish alive in the wild for generations, but in captivity, it may be the very thing that kills them

There are many reasons goldfish experience shock, but the most common is shock caused by a large and sudden change in nitrates. Shock can also occur when temperatures are suddenly changed dramatically. A goldfish in a healthy and happy environment; natural lighting, gravel to peck through, plants to hover in or around with hiding places experience much less stress on a daily basis as a goldfish living in an unhealthy and unhappy environment

A goldfish living in a school experiences less stress than a goldfish alone. It’s up to us to create a safe haven for our little friends, but even when we do, accidents can happen to the best of goldfish. Keeping stress levels low reduces the risk of shock
