Question swim bladder issue with crowntail goldfish???

Hey! My 3 crowntail goldfish have issues swimming, usually after they eat. They tend to float at the top of the water, sometimes sideways. I think they are swallowing to much air when they eat. Is that bad? How do I fix it?

Thanks!

You can try feeding them less, feed sinking pellets instead of flakes, also skinned peas are good for swim bladder problems.
A combination of all the above should help. My goldfish get a pea every day. They really enjoy it.

Daphnia is also good for swimbladder disorder.

Daphnia are tiny crustaceans and come either freeze dried or frozen. I feed miy bettas Hikari freeze dried dphnia. They are more natural for fish than peas. The freeze dried need to be rehydrated before feeding.
