OOPS I MISTAKENLY POSTED THIS IN THE SALTWATER CLOWNFISH. I DIDN'T MEAN TO.

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??

Well for your Clownfish I am not sure a eater change would help. Just kidding but I think you should read this come back with what you find.
