Swim Bladder Issues

Post by jfazande » Mon Dec 18, 2017 10:10 am

I have a rescue cichlid that is swimming vertically. It just started when the weather in New Orleans got freakishly cold (tanks are in the garage). I increased the temp and fasted the fish to no avail. I've also been treating with anti bacterial meds. Is there anything else that should be done or that I can do?
