    Anyone an expert with this and glofish tetras? One of my fish is at the slightest curve sideways just a tad. The fish will go straight but sometimes it’ll turn to the side just a bit. It’ll swim like that too for a given amount of time. Every now and than the turn is a little harder. Is this swim bladder disease or the beginning of it?

    Swim bladder disease really isn't a sickness, its a possible symptom of an underlying disease; intestinal bacterial infection or a parasitic infestation. The swimming irregularity of your Tetra might only be a genetic flaw. You're dealing with a genetically altered Glofish.
    There is really no viable treatment. If things begin to deteriorate, remove the Tetra. As long as the fish is eating, and the irregular swimming is limited, maybe things will level out.
