Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Furan-2 when I got the new tank My fantail, Rex, has had floaty problems for awhile now (I think because of the food -- I'm planning to switch to homemade gel ASAP), but he usually recovers after a few hours. He's been extra secluded lately and can't stay upright except for a few quick bursts. His fins seem more split than yesterday. He also seems a little out of it -- he doesn't see the aggressive fish coming to nip at his fins until it does it. He doesn't seem to be in much distress, just a little uncomfortable. I want to make sure he doesn't have something that could be contagious to the whole tank. * I will also add that I had a cave-like enclosed decoration in the tank for about a month, but I took it out today after Rex was hiding in it all day and after reading about Koko's hollow log bad-bacteria incident. Another fish, Spike, died last weekend from similar behavior, except he was bottom-sitting instead of floating. The other fishes ate most of his body while I was gone for the weekend (don't know if this is relevant) I'm trying to lower that ammonia. I keep a 30gal baggie of ammochips in the filter, but I'm about to do a water change right now.

Some Furan-2 last week, but it should be filtered out by now * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.): nitrogen-cycle shock * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? fish that just died had major fin-fray, oranda has lesions and black fin tips getting worse, white ryukin has a few small red veins in tail, fantail gets floaty sometimes * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? the fish that just died was bottom-sitting but the others are fine, appetite seems decreased * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment.: treated for Ick a few times in old tank, Furan-2 recently I have a small fantail who gets really floaty sometimes, but I can't be sure of the cause because the floating seems sporadic. Sometimes, a few hours after he eats, he'll float upside down or sideways inside the top of a barrel decoration (he's figured this out instead of floating at the surface). Sometimes at night, he'll have trouble staying away from the surface, or he'll even float for so long he appears dead. But this isn't every day. My question is: does this sound like his food is making him floaty (currently, I do not soak it first)? or is this perhaps something more serious, such as a swim bladder issue from being overcrowded? I can try to get a picture if that's needed.
