Is it Swim Bladder disease
My Calico fantail lately has been sucking air after meals at the surface and struggles to swim to the bottom of the tank. Otherwise she eats well normal active behaviour.
I am unsure of feeding requirements now as all my goldies are over 1yr old now.
I have been feeding twice a day sinking pellets new era and Tetra premium food for fancies. I feed frozen blood worms occasionally and brimpshrimp live dafia as a treat veggies 3-4 times a week.
She seems to be OK after peas but I'm having to feed veg after every pellet feed.
Should I be lowering the feed to once a day now they are no longer juvenile.
Water stats ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrates 05-10. I tested y.day.
This calico is the female who gets the most breeding interest from the males, she gets chased a lot when spawning. No eggs yet this year. She had one lay last year.
