Recluctant Goldie breeder

Greetings! Our first, a Common from a fair 3 years ago has a beautiful Lionhead boyfriend given to us about 9 months ago. They were in a Hex 5 and began breeding non-stop about 4 months ago. I was letting nature take its course by allowing them to hatch and be devoured until my 8 year old begged me to save a batch. This led me to move the busy couple to a 10 gallon tank and removed the last spawning to the hex 5 after a week in a little portable thing. We had 16 hatch and have only lost two thus far. We just put 4 more ready to hatch eggs with them today. Three have bent tails and are erratic swimmers all of a sudden so I'm worried. What's happening? Genetics? Disease?My formerly callous attitude has now transformed to deep concern and love for our babies!

My guess is from bad water quality. Common goldfish need 75 gal+ fancies 20 gal+
Starting over...... Kinda.

3, 20, 25, 33 Gallon FW Tanks.....For Now
