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.

One of my fish doesn't like veggies... He's wierd. Also, what's daphnia?

Thanks!

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.
