O) do you answer questions on fish please? about 3 years…

Customer Question
Do you answer questions...

Do you answer questions on fish please?

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the fish?

About 3 years ago, my friend gave me this fish..pure white, with a bend on the body. She said that a brick had fallen on him but when she took the brick off, he carried on swimming. now, he's doing crocodile turns ..stays in a water plant I have and this morning I saw him swim straight into the side of the fish pond. I know he's only a fish, but I'd hate for him to be in pain.. can you help me please? :o)

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the fish's name?

Just an ordinary gold fish

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the fish?

He must be eating but I've never seen him eat.. he swims into the other fish sometimes...
