Swimbladder Treatment is suitable for cold water and tropical aquariums. To be used for internal bacterial infections that cause irregular swimming behaviour. Symptoms can include the fish becoming lethargic, having clamped fins, being unstable in the water, hanging at the surface or lying on the bottom of the aquarium.
Fish affected by swimbladder issues struggle to stay buoyant. They typically look well but float near the water’s surface, or sink to the bottom, wobbling about on their side or upside down. They can get exhausted trying to stay upright, or trying to feed. This can be caused by various problems including a sudden change in water temperature although a swimbladder infection is a more likely cause.

Warning: This product will colour the water yellow. It will also stain skin and clothing but is harmless to filter bacteria and all species of fish and plants. Water changes can be performed after 5 days of treatment to remove any remaining colour.
Nearly all the disease treatments available to fishkeepers have organic active ingredients (even those which claim to contain no chemicals). These organic chemicals are removed by adsorbent filter media such as carbon and zeolite, so remove these before adding a treatment to ensure the treatment is not removed before it has time to be effective. As a general rule of thumb, the filter mediums can be returned to the filter 7 days after the final dose of treatment has been added, but be sure to consult the instructions to see if the product requires more or less time to work.
It is also worth turning all UV systems off, increasing aeration and monitoring feeding closely don't overfeed if the fish are not wanting to eat as this can lead to further problems.
