After 2 rounds of antibiotics, salt baths, and mushed peas, my fantail calico is still upside down. But, she only swims upside down after eating. I fasted her for a week she swam fine the whole time, but as soon as I fed her she went upside down again! She turns right side up about 12 hours after feeding, but once I feed her again, she is upside down again. I even switched to sinking pelletted food so she wouldn't swallow air when she eats at the surface, but nothing helps. I have 4 other goldfish in the tank (it's a 30 gallon) and they are all fine, it's just the one goldfish this happens to. This has been going on for 2 months, I thought she would have been dead long ago, I can't believe she has lasted this long. I keep expecting to find her dead one morning, but she's still hanging on. You would never know anything was wrong wit her, she eats fine, looks great, etc.
She just floats behind the filter output upside down every day. Is she suffering like that?
The water is clean, regular water changes, gravel vacuumed, etc., PH 7.2, ammonia 0, I also use salt in the water, 1 tbsp per 5 gallons water. I would love any advice on this one. Thanks!
My fantail calico goldfish has swim bladder. HELP!
