Swim bladder?

Recommended Posts

My dads goldfish has gotten ill and he told me he thinks it is swimbladder.

The fish doesn't float to the top, or sink...it swims normally, but when going fast and stuff it keeps rolling sidewards again and again unable to get upright unless slowing down.

This doesn't sound like swim bladder does it? could he be overfeeding his fish, what should be done?
