Black Neon Tetra Swimming Problem
 
I have a group of black neon tetras in my 72gal community tank, very healthy perfect water parameters. One recently laid eggs, and ever since then has to swim constantly or sink. I am thinking the big change of going from bulging with eggs to suddenly not has affected the swin bladder. Any suggestions?

How is the pooping? She may be constipsted which is pressing on the swim bladder. give a few frozen peas for food. Maybe put her in a breeding net for less problems. I suggest raising the temp too. Around 76. When my cherry barn had swim bladder I added salt to the tank too. He survived.

The temp is 78, already have salt in tank, and she eats and poops fine, very healthy. Just cant float since she laid eggs.

try the pea thing and don't gibe flakes or. Pellet food. You can also try fasting for a day. Unfortunately there is no cure for swim bladder. My fish was blocked up and was popping fine but peas and fasting helped
