Check your ammonia levels- too much ammonia can cause red streaks.

Alas, I think my bubble eye is dying. Over the past 2 days, he has started spitting out all of his food, he has lost a ton of weight and looks completely emaciated, and his tail fins are almost completely rotted away. The other two fish in the tank continue to look great.

I wonder what this mystery disease could be? Maybe he has goldfish cancer. I suppose I will never know, but I don't expect him to last the night.

I have never had issues defrosting peas in tap. I just remove the shell and feed it to the fish.

For treating your goldfish, do lots of 25 percent water changes. If you think it's a bacterial infection, treat it with an antibiotic.

The water quality is perfect, ammonia is zero, and I've been dosing with anti-fungal/anti-bacterial for two days. The fish has only gotten worse He looks skeletal and his tail fin is completely frayed. He is spitting out all his food. I think he's done for despite all my efforts.

be patient, adding the meds could take a little longer, add the right amout for the quantity of water, if your best efforts fail then none of last forever and be happy to yourself in the knowledge that you tried to save the little fella.

try not to use floating foods..sinking pellets will help to keep them from getting bloated..
buy vegetable sticks or bits and feed it 2 or 3 times a week..this will keep them from getting constipated.....easier to do than peas.

Lohachata is probably right. I have heard of betta fish getting bloated because of an air bubble in their stomach which can be caused by floating foods.
