Swim bloat?

I forget what its called, but Aphrodite seems to be having a hard time swimming. She'll swim down a little and then float back up to the top. Do i need to fast her and give her a pea?

It's SBD. I'd fast for a few days and I'd recommend giving some daphnia then - not the pea. Peas are bad for their digestive tract.

Daphnia are also called water fleas. They're very tiny and a container of it almost looks like sawdust. Its a kind of crustacean, I believe and very healthy for fish.
