PostSubject: Swimming sideways   Mon Oct 27, 2008 8:09 pm

I wonder if one of my goldies has a swimbladder problem. It seems to be unable to keep upright when swimming, and leans over onto its side all the time. It's also not swimming as easily as the others.

I have fasted it yesterday, and now have fed it some veggies to see if that helps, anyone got any other ideas?

peas sometimes seem to help goldies with dodgy swimming problems.

Thanks gary. That's what I have done - I defrosted some garden peas, shelled them and threw them in, so hopefully it will show some signs of improvement tomorrow.
