Rusty has sbd!

I noticed the last 2 nights that Rusty is showing signs of sbd. This is the second fish I've gotten from Petsmart that mysteriously comes down with sbd 3 months after I get it. I guess I'll be fasting and feeding daphnia. It didn't help Merlot. He still floats but has no other symptoms. Merlot has been like this for months. Ughh!!!

Maybe he was constipated. When ever I see sbd like symptoms I fast fish a few days. I have been lucky and never had a fish with sbd.

Swim bladder disorder.Rusty's ok tonight and he slept under his bridge last night. I cut back on his pellets this morning. I just gave him 1 and he got bloodworms for dinner.

My boy Spike has chronic SBD. He was fine up until a month after I got him. He seems to be just fine other then that though.

Rusty has been ok the last few nights. Hopefully it was just a little constipation and he'll be ok.
