Swim Bladder Issues??

Sierra s.

I believe that my yellow tetra that I've had for about 3 years now is having swim bladder issues. I thought he was dieing but it's been a week since I noticed it and he swims fine to get food and swims ok normally but several times a day he has these "episodes" where his tail goes up and he floats like that then swims on and the it happens again. All my other fish are fine and my levels are normal and good, I did a eater change just in case but the levels are still good.

What's happening to him??


Several factors contribute to SwI'm bladder trouble. Intestinal bacterial infections, parasitic infestations and occasionally constipation.
In the case of your Tetra the swim bladder problem might simply be age related degeneration.
