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.

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:.
