Swim Bladder Problem (Comet Goldfish)

I have two comet goldfish in a 75 Gallon tank, the one seems to like swimming against the current from my powerhead and he eats all the air bubbles the pump draws in. I'm almost certain this is the cause of his swim bladder issue but i'm a little unsure how to fix the issue. Any advice or recommendations would be great!

Goldfish often get this problem from gulping air, you really should keep fancy goldfish in Bare Bottom tanks, and feed them only sinking food.
It should resolve on its own once this "gulping" behavior stops.

Hi there,

I recommend the following, which help my goldfish:
1. Good quality sinking pellets such as New Life Spectrum.
2. Plus a range of other foods such as worms and frozen brine shrimps.
3. Deshelled/skinned peas. I give my fish peas as a bed time treat every night. It is their favourite time of day!
