Possible Swim Bladder. Please help.

My newest fish, Danny (given to me by the mother of a young son, my neighbor, whose childish fancies have long since gone in regards to this fish), seems to have swim bladder. I didn't think I was overfeeding him--I feed him the same amount as I do my other fish--but, since he's started it about two weeks ago, I have fed him sparingly, and nothing has come of it. If anything, he looks worse.

Suggestions?

If he's floating at the top on his side then, yes, its probably swimbladder disorder. I would fast him for 2 or 3 days, then feed him either freeze dried or frozen daphnia. Hope this helps.
