One of my fish is acting very strange. Was hoping someone had an idea what's wrong and perhaps a remedy.

Yes all other fish are fine. What would cause this and you said there's no cure?

Since sadly there is no cure for swim bladder disorder, if this fish has not already passed you should euthanize it, I personally don't know much about euthanizing fish but you could probably find a humane way to do it with a quick search using google.

You can euthanizing with clove oil. It's the most humane way because it puts them to sleep before they die. Again sorry for your loss.

I don't think it's necessary to euthanize a fish at first signs of swim bladder disorder. Is he eating fine? If he is, there's no need to euthanize unless you see him being stressed out or something like that.

If he stops eating, then that's another story.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

That looks more neurological to me than something wrong with the swim bladder.
