Is this a sign of swim bladder issues?

His appetite is fine and water temp stays at 72 but every now and then i find him completely vertical. Once he sees me hd a ts fine but then he goes back to this. Any suggestions?

That does seem odd. try isolating him and treating with 1 tsp/gal of epsom salt for 7-10 days.

also, try slowly raising the temperature to 76-78 over a few days if you can.

Well I quartined him for awhile and he seemed to be better so I put him back in the tank but he got worse again so I pulled him out and he's doing better again. So he is on a pea diet and Im going to do a big water change in his other tank.

A lot of the members on here don't suggest Pea diets. How long did you QT him for the first time before adding him back to the tank?

About a week. I was suspicious of constipation so I've been feeding him peas. It seems to have helped, but don't worry it's not permanent.
