Swim bladder disease, also called swim bladder disorder or flipover, is a common ailment in aquarium fish. The swim bladder is an internal gas-filled organ that contributes to the ability of a fish to control its buoyancy, and thus to stay at the current water depth without having to waste energy in swimming. A fish with swim bladder disorder can float nose down tail up, or can float to the top or sink to the bottom of the aquarium.


  • Sinking to the bottom of the tank (or floating by standing on its head at the bottom of the tank)

  • Floating to the top of the tank.

  • Struggling to stay upright, turning on its side, or upside down.

  • Distended belly.

  • Curved back.

  • Changed appetite.



    Use anti Swim Bladder medicines according to the tank size.

              #Stress Heal (optional)

              #Worm-Out (optional)

 Some fish are born with a susceptibility to swimbladder issues including “fancy” varieties of Goldfish such as moors, veil tails and orandas. Swimbladder infections can also be caused by bacteria which is the cause targeted by Swimbladder treatments. This issue can also be worsened by fish stress, so helping to support the fish’s immune system will benefit their recovery.
