if its swimbladder ther is a remedy that if you feed it green peas it can help it if the fish is constipated it can cause it or high nitrates also causes it do a water change as it will help

Apparently if you thaw the frozen peas and feed them to him that should help apparently some scientist in america swears by it katy but I am sure one of the more experience fish keepers will be on tomorrow which may help more sorry we couldn't be of much help tonight.

hi katy what do you feed your oranda on and how often ?
as floating pond pellets hold air in them so that sometimes holds in there belly like when you eat loads of beans lol.like gulps of air
try feeding the the dahnia as that sinks or sinking pellets also just feed then 6 days a week instead of 7 that gives there digeastion system a rest also if they are still hungry they will clean any food thats laying in the tank which helps keeping the tank cleaner
hope this helps keep us posted
