hi and welcome wish it was under better terms but your angel has swim bladder disease, do partial water changes of 25% daily untill your ammonia, nitrate and nitrite are all good and your can blanch or steam peas and take skin off stick a toothpick through middle and let it float if he can get to it to eat it it will make him less constapated there for curing the swimbladder disease gl and keep me informed sry for the wait
