    Damaged swim bladder, red mark is from him sitting on the bottom. Unfortunately it is very hard to correct swim bladder issues. You can try feeding high roughage foods like peeled petite peas mashed into bite size bits for a couple feeding and see if that helps. If not he will just continue to deteriorate and the best option will be to euthanize. I had a gold fish die from that almost a year ago.
