Black moor & swim bladder disease

  • #1

    Hi I’ve a black moor & I noticed a while back he was hiding at the bottom of the tank under the ornaments a lot. Went on holiday a few weeks ago and came back to notice he was floating upside down and really bloated. I looked this up and came to the conclusion he probably has swim bladder disease. I tried feeding him small amounts of pea as advised online but this hasn’t made any difference. The poor guy is literally stuck at the bottom of the tank barely moving now. I don’t know what to do to help him. Anyone any ideas thanks

    There’s not much you can do that’ll work.
    Is there other fish in the tank?you will need to treat it with anti bacteria.




  • Yes 2 other goldfish. Not a bother with them. I assume I would have to separate them if I were to get hold of some sort of treatment?
