Have you recently changed anything or added something to make the fish susceptible to disease?

Well now my tang is normal again and his stomach deflated from when he was having swimming problems. I read up on swim bladder and they said to feed the fish frozen peas (natural laxative) and if it returns to treat it with medicine. Only problem is idk what medicine to treat it with. Does anyone know?

I`ve always heard making water as pristine as possible will usually cure over time.
