If it died in the tank, his mates would have take some nibbles.

Pretty much all fish are opportunistic canibals. A free meal is a free meal.

Goldfish will eat anything that fits in their mouths, and have a good go at anything that doesn't - that's why if you're breeding goldfish you have to separate the eggs and fry from the parents, and yup, if one dies in the tank and you don't see it immediately it's lunch.

Hey guys i have a sick goldfish in my system, he/shes been swimming isolated from the rest of the group for a few days now.
The goldfish also looks very pale and right now its having trouble staying upright.
He also has an enlarged stomach?

Iv isolated him from my system and put him indoors (its currently freezing outside -6 at night to about +5c in the daytime, No ice in my AP only the growbed is frozen and my pump is still running.)

Shall i give him some salt or anything?

Looks like either bloat or a swim bladder problem. Salt (maybe 2ppt) won't hurt and might help, and if fishy is still eating you could see if it'll take a couple of blanched peas - that can help with a lot of digestive problems in goldfish.
