Egg bound oranda goldfish

Recommended Posts


So my goldfish has been egg bound for a couple days, at first we thought it was swim bladder as she was just floating upsidedown, so did a water change.


Then realized she was egg bound, the male is still in the tank with her but is struggling to help her get the eggs out as she's floating around upsidedown. Have tried gently rubbing her belly, which released a few eggs. Let her rest for the rest of the night as was hoping the rest would come out naturally but no success.

Gave her a bath in epsom salt today and tried to help her again but still no eggs...

Any suggestions? Also if anyone knows how hard/much pressure to use when helping her get the eggs out as I don't want to hurt her.


Thanks for any help
