If hes at the top gasping for air theres something wrong with the water. Have you got it tested? I would get it tested for everything if you havent already.

A fish can go blind if it has infections in its eyes caused by water quality and injuries, genetic defects or cataracts. Heard of blind cave tetras? They are blinded as they mature yet they can sense anything including prey with the use of their lateral line according to the information I had obtained.
