View Full Version : swim bladder problems (i think)

my comet (about 6 inches long) is perfectly fine except that he can't swim upright and spends his time on his side at the bottom of the tank, he has something i took to be the swim bladder bulging out of his side but I don't know how to fix him! I asked the guy at the fish store and he said that the problem fixes itself in a few weeks but I don't think he'll last that long because he's not eating very well anymore. I heard something about sticking a needle in them or massaging them, but I don't really know what works and i don't want to hurt the fish! anyone know how to fix this problem?
