Ok - had a friend come to me and describe what sounds like a classic swimbladder problem - her parameters are fine - nothing unusual has occured in the tank.
Her goldfish is about 8 years old (pretty good for a goldie if you ask me) and is floating round the top belly up. He's still eating well, and doesn't appear to be too uncomfortable, but she describes his movement "as if he's had a stroke - his tail doesn't move"
In the meantime, I reccommended she keep a close eye on him, and fed soft food, or soak his flakes (I think this may be the cause of the problem - she didn't know it had to soak, and he ate it fast) before feeding.
Any other tips to help this problem? Would melafix help?
(I've not had a problem with swimbladder yet - not actually encountered it personally) :blush:

I'll reccommend peas to her too, the problem may be caused by constipation... but it could be all sorts I suppose.

in goldfish it is usually caused by constipation... so if she feeds him only peas for a few days, it should clear up

Definitely sounds like a Swim-bladder disorder but could be a disease caused by viral or bacterial infection, constipation (mainly fancy goldfish) or some other organ disease.

Most internal organ diseases, i.e. kidney/intestinal diseases or blockages can usually only be established at a post mortem. If it is as you think (constipation) then I would suggest that you don't feed it for three days. Hope it all works out,

I think you all have covered it for swim-bladder, but let me add that to comfort your friend that it is not suposto be painful for the fish to have this. I have a cory that has just recovered from this and this is what i did. First he was put into a tank all alone (quarantined) not fed for 3 days, then feed only peas for 4 days. Cory is back in his community tank now doing fine. As for why i quarantined him, he lives with a severum that if not fed for three day would eat others in the tank. Good luck.
