I have a 8 year old plus goldfish and we have had some

Customer Question

Hi I have a 8 year old plus goldfish and we have had some problems with swim bladder disease, but are always able to cure it. This time we have done everything to water changes, fasting and feeding peas. He is now always floating upside down near the filter and only moves if he is fed. Is he just suffering or is there something else that can be done?
