Trouble in Paradise

Hey guys, last night Carmella got wedged under the turtle sculpture in my tank. I dont know how long she was under there, but we got her out and she had been swimming very hard.... she just floats to the top, she struggles to stay down... i have her in the sick tank... I don't know what to do for her. I feel so bad, cause I didn't have that stupid turtle buried enough, I guess. Now it looks like she is going to die

I'm so sorry! Maybe it did something to her swimbladder. I hope she'll be ok.

That's what I was thinking... The turtle was across her mid section. I didn't even see her for a long time, I thought the others had eaten her. Finally I saw her tail sticking out, then i thought it was only going to be her tail. But to my surprise she darted out and went to the top for a breath.... but now she can't stay down. Just keeps floating up and has labored gill movements. There are no visual injuries on her. Not even fin nips. If there anything I can do for her swimbladder? What should I be trying??

Jungle Fungus Eliminator can be used to treat SBD. You could try that or maybe wait a few days to see if it heals on it's own.
