My goldfish is breathing really fast

Overall, there is a clear difference in the respiratory rate of the goldfish in hot water compared to cold water. In hot water, the goldfish breathes faster. Similarly, fish breathe slower in cold water. With an increase in temperature comes an increase in the fish’s metabolism, which makes the fish require more oxygen to support this increased metabolism. The same occurs with the colder water: with less temperature, the fish does not need as much oxygen. The fish probably reacted in this way because they cannot maintain a stable body temperature like humans do, so when the outside temperature changes, they must change as well. In comparison to the average rate, our group’s goldfish reacted in about the same way, with only slight differences in the results. This shows that this reaction of the change in breathing rate occurs similarly across all fish.

Goldfish breathing very fast? | Yahoo Answers

Note: Colder water contains more oxygenated water than warm water. By keeping a goldfish’s tank water cooler than 70*F, oxygen levels will be elevated, making it easier for goldfish to breath.
