Swim bladder disease?

jill1979September 14, 2006

I think my oranda has swim bladder disease. I thought she was dead as she was floating on her side at the top of the tank then I poked her and she started swimming fine again. How can I treat this? Any suggestions? I was going to give her some frozen peas and then maybe try fasting her, what do you think? I have had this fish for quite sometime now so I am very worried. My water is perfect. This fish has lived through the worst from a year ago, she outlasted my first days of starting a tank so I cannot beleive this is happening when everything is ok.

Does the fish have any signs of external injury, or blood spots on it's body, or streaks in it's fins?

Is it eating: breathing normally?

No, everything is fine with her. She is eating(she ate a pea also yesterday) and no external signs of anything anywhere.

Oh, I forgot one thing, my fishes eyes are different one from the other. One has a silver cilrcle around it and the other is just black but it doesn't look like popeye. I soaked her sinking pellets this morning and started a maracyn two treatment just in case, any other suggestions?
