Sweetie is still having problems even with fasting she's still fat looking and having buoyancy issues. Randomly she'll get better. Her poop is normal. Is she just prone to get swim bladder? Even without eating? :( I haven't had this problem before. Since she's gotten fat she has this problem.

If it really is bloat an she isn't eggy, there's something wrong... My boy had the bloat/buoyancy with internal parasites but she obviously doesn't have that... Maybe an internal bacterial infection?

If it was constipation it would happen after feeding and go away with poo...

It's more swollen on one side. What should I do? I don't want to lose her :( but I feel so helpless not knowing what to do. If you notice she flares up a little. She'll flare while she's bloated and then get better. She gets after feeding which is why I thought it was constipation but then I fasted her for a day and breakfast but she still got "bloated" and then back to normal. And then now she's bloated again. She gets really agitated when everyone else gets food and she doesn't. She currently in a breeders net because she's having troubles swimming.

Well if its more on one side, maybe a tumor? :( I know there are some bacterial infections that cause things like that. I would ask Callistra or Sakura8... If it is bacterial (since it doesn't sound like internal parasites) it would be treated with something like Kanaplex, but Epsom salt is a good place to start. It's obviously internal and Epsom salts treat internal infections and bloating..
