Well, I have sort of isolated my clown loach by netting him in the top corner of the tank that hes been floating at. Ive thrown in some shrimp pellets in the net. He struggles to get at them. Hell pick one up in his mouth but then he drops it to the bottom of the net and again he struggles to find it again by trying to flip himself right side up, but then loses his equilibrium and once again settles to the top of the tank upside down. He is pretty much motionless untill I feed him or move the net a little. There is signs of defecation, but he cannot straighten himself out. Ive come to the conclusion he most likely does have swim bladder problems and I guess theres nothing much I can do but wait to see if he gets it back huh?
