Floating issues are caused by swim bladder issues; the weakening of the swim bladder organ due to infection, which is rare, or more commonly constipation. Constipation is caused by gorging, or eating pellets that have swelled in the tract, blocking it. Intestinal tracts can also become inflamed, which also causes blockage. Inflammation is caused by bacteria infection or a reaction to a specific food

Goldfish suffering from floating issues are more sensitive to water pressure than other fish.

Goldfish Floating and Swim Bladder Issues

  • Goldfish has uncontrolled swimming

The deeper your goldfish tank, the more pressure created by the volume of the water. Increased amounts of water pressure may be difficult for fancy goldfish or awkward swimmers, such as ryukins, to tolerate. A goldfish with a more sensitive swim bladder; contained in too tall of an aquarium may develop symptoms of uncontrolled swimming, floating or upside down syndrome even though it’s tract is clear

Fish prone to digestive issues, may develop scarring in the intestinal tract, causing inflammation, which in itself could cause constipation

Gradually reduce water table as low as possible without allowing mechanics of top loading filtering systems to run dry, but high enough so that goldfish can comfortably swim. Reducing the water table in an aquarium may result in the build up of carbon dioxide in the gap. Point a fan so it’s pulling gas away from the surface as fresh air is pulled over the surface

Feed less more often; feed increased amounts of roughage in lower water temperature

Feeding goldfish Koi

It may be beneficial to keep the depth of the water shallow for a few months or even permanently depending on the fish

Treat constipated fish with the Float Remedy

Constipation can be caused by improper feeding habits and or feeding improper foods. A slow moving tract invites bad bacteria

Fill an eye dropper with one part warm, treated water and one part olive oil, mineral or any other high grade cooking oil you have on hand.
Catch up the fish with tank water in a plastic container; cup fish in hands; lift its head above the water table; it will gasp in a moment giving you a chance to administer the oil; push tip of dropper to back of throat; repeat twice a day or until floating issue is resolved.
