  1. Hi Everyone, I think I know there is probably no treatment for what I am about to describe but in the interest of leaving no stone unturned here goes. My favourite butterfly telescope eye 'Buster' started occasionally floating upside down for a few seconds when I turned off the power filter in his tank or when he was in the bucket while I cleaned his tank. He did this only if the water was still for a fairly long time and he did not do this every day. This started about two weeks ago. I then noticed it was happening any time I turned off the the power filter to feed the fish if the filter was off for more than 10 minutes. When I turned the filter back on he would right himself and swim about normally. Then yesterday morning I looked into the tank as usual to check my two fish were ok and he was doing a head stand. When he saw me he righted himself and swam around as usual. Today he is doing a lot more head standing. I just took this pic of him doing the headstand. When he saw me he righted himself again and swam about for a little while then went back to the head standing. I did an 80% water change three days ago. I just did a water test: pH 7.6 Ammonia 0ppm Nitrite 0ppm Nitrate 3ppm It is a 300 litre tank, it has 1 x internal power filter rated 600-1000 litres per hour and 1 x external power filter, an Eheim Professional 3 I only feed gel foods, Repashy Soilent Green, New Life Spectrum Nutri Gel and Algae Gel I would appreciate anyone's thoughts here. While I have your attention can anyone tell me if Ranchu easier to keep? Are they less prone to swim bladder issues?
