    Question Neon Tetra with Swim Bladder issue

    0 Not allowed!
    I suspect that this is most likely the result of some overfeeding on my part/overeating on his part but my one neon tetra appears to have an issue with his swim bladder. He is currently swimming with his tail being a fair bit higher than his head.

    From what I have found so far on the net the solution would appear to be no feeding for a few days...does this sound accurate? Are there any other solutions? I've tried catching him to put him into the quarantine tank but he can still swim very quickly so I've had no luck there.

    Thanks for the help!

    I've heard similar things with neons before. try doing nothing for now maybe? In other cases it went away after a few hours after feeding.
