Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. API General Cure and Kanaplex for 12 days. The last days, no meds. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Nothing visible on the fish. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? For the last 6 months, my pearlscale named Golfball has had some floating and buoyancy issues. Despite soaking my NLS pellets, he would often float after eating. I changed the feeding routine for the whole tank and they have been on Soilent Green gel 2x day and frozen bloodworms 2x a week. Occasionally I'd remove Golfball for 20 minutes while I fed the rest of the goldfish NLS pellets, but Golfball hasn't had them. His floating got worse in the last month. Three weeks ago I decided to QT him in a 20 gallon tote with the meds mentioned above. Due to his SBD symptoms, I wanted to treat him with meds to rule out an illness causing his SBD issues. After 12 days of treatment, he was no worse and no better. So I assumed the SBD issues are stemming from a physical problem with his swim bladder instead of an illness. The last 4 days, he hasn't had any meds in his water, but he has now gotten much worse. Yesterday and today, he is constantly upside down on the bottom of the tank and can't right himself. He doesn't seem stressed. He's actually quite calm and breathing normally. Yesterday and today, I've lowered the water level to give him relief. Before, the level was about 15 inches deep, and now it's at about 8 inches deep. Is there anything else I can do for him? I think it's a deformed swim bladder... and I hate to watch him suffer. I was planning on giving him another day or two, and if he is still constantly upside down on the bottom, I'll have to euthanize him... which is not at all what I want to do. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
