Thank you ColdKoi. In my tank I have Neons, two yellow small as the neons, this silver one (who started to nap on the fins too), a black one with big eyes and the pleco. All in a 54l tank.
I have special tablets for the pleco from Tetra which the Gold fish also started to eat once they discover it in the tank. As the pleco loves to house itself inside the ship wrack I have in the tank, I put the tablet into there. So no other fish can eat it.
I rescued last night the other gold fish who was still ok from the tank. And put both gold fish into another tank. The injured gold fish cant swim anymore as the separated one small fin from the front and some small fin from the back, both on the same side. The gold fish is lying on one side on the top of the tank, getting weaker by the day. one side also has no gold anymore as I guess the pleco ate it.
I feel sad for the gold fish and think he will die.
I will make photos of the remaining fish in the tank and would be happy of advise if thats ok to be with each other. I put in the photos how many of each as I don't want again such brutal attacks. Thanks a lot to all of you.
