Clown Swimming Weird


hypostatic

Recommended Posts

So I got 2 clowns on last Friday, and for the last few days one of the clowns has been constantly swimming at the top of the tank, and it looks like if he stops swimming he slowly floats upward. Any ideas?

 

Water Parameters (tested with Tetra Easy Strip)

Nitrate - 0

Nitrite - 0

KH - 180-300

pH - 8.4

Looks like a swim bladder issue. Sometimes it's just from an intestinal blockage. Stop feeding for a couple days and see if it corrects itself.

 

On a side note, ditch those POS test strips and get something that actually tests water.

Hmmm ok, I'll get a better test kit.

 

I believe I read that dried food can expand in their stomachs and cause this problem? I've been feeding pellets
