Thanks for the advice so far guys. Ultimately I fed him a bit of pea and honestly, he started to do a lot better after he pooped. He still kind of floats to the top, but since I cranked up all the devices he hasn't tried to gulp air as much. He's also swimming more to the mid and bottom. I'm going to try to sleep now, hopefully he's getting better.

Last night was fine, but he slept at the top of the tank still. This morning, he swam around fine and after I came out of my shower he was back to trying to suck air from the surface and floating around motionless in one of the corners. I fed him a pea in hopes of it working like it did last night, but he still seemed the same.

I think I'm going to try Hu's method and fast him for about three days. As much as it hurts me to see him hungry, well, aren't goldfish always hungry?
