I have a lionhead goldfish in my bottom 40 gallon goldfish that's bloated and swimming upside down. It looks like swim bladder disease, so I am going to try feeding skinned peas. I have a common goldfish in my pond that also has swim bladder disease that I probably have to euthanize, I hope I don't lose my lionhead too.

Try fasting the Lionhead for one day. Then on the next day feed him boiled deshelled peas. It must work.
All the best.

Now he's looking more bloated :(. What should I do? His scales don't look quite like they are pineconed, but it almost looks like there is fluid around the scales themselves.

I got what I thought was clove oil, but I read on the back that it was actually clove extract. I was going to get some clove oil to euthanize him, but he died today :cry:.
