Hey, how's your fish doing??
My betta Kale had a swim bladder problem last summer. I tried doing the pea thing, as that's all I heard to help. I used a bettafix remedy and tried other similar things. He was on his side for so long(more than a month, maybe 2). I can't believe he survived, because a few times I was sure he was about to die. He would float on his side, then finally was able to at least get down to the bottom and underneath a fake plant I've got in there. That was all that held him down. He ate normally and everything, just couldn't swim because he'd float to the top.
I'm happy to say he's still alive now
I've had him for over a year now. And I got another betta, because the poor guy would never have been chosen at Wal-Mart.. really dislike how they deal with the bettas. The newest one has one huge eye and he's a small little guy compared to Kale..
Anyways, just wondering if your fishie was still floating or what?
