So, I I'm 100% sure Elvis has a swim bladder disease. I double checked online just in case, and he fits everything: floats uncontrollably to the top of the tank, struggles greatly while swimming and swims at an unusual angle, a "kinked" spine and lies around, barely moving except when a mad dash is made to the surface for air.
Now, I know how to manage this as best as I can, my only question is... how in the world did he get it?!
I haven't been overfeeding, he doesn't have a swollen belly at all, he hasn't been injured at all from what I know (when cleaning his tank, I scoop him into a cup, so he doesn't even go near a net) - what could have caused this? Poor Elvis, he looks so awkward and keeps giving me this look of "OH GOD HELP ME I'M UPSIDE DOWN D:"
If anyone could offer some insight, that'd be great. Thanks guys :3
