The synodonis is dying? is there 2? If it is laying on the gravel out in the open it could be, but it also could not be. It could just be resting, give it a few hours and see if he moves or wait tell you do feeding time, he will really move then if he is alive.

I think he means one of the goldfish. I would get rid of them ASAP. Could be stressed or sick. Is the one that lays around still eating? Any physical signs?

Know anyone with a pond? You could always do that too. FWIW.

Just try to find them a new home. Honestly it sounds like they are sleeping. Bettas do the same thing. They will lay there head in a log or plant and leave there whole body laying out. They will even lay on the gravel and sleep. Clown loaches will also sleep laying on there sides. So i would not be alarmed about what they are doing. Like i said sounds like there sleeping.

#1 you have too cycle the tank.
#2 i am sure the 10g is too small for any of the goldfish. A good rule for goldfish is 30g of water for the first 1 and a additional 10 gallons for each 1 after that. Thay need LOTS of room.

No goldfish can be kept in a ten gallon. You could keep the three in a 75g if you can find one.
