Treatment of swim bladder infections
there is a headstander (swimbladder infection) among my discus. Which treatments are useful and really help?
sera baktopur direct (tablets to be dissolved in water) and sera baktoTabs (food tablets with the same anti-bacterial agent nifurpirinol - this of course requires that the fish still accept food!) will help against bacterial swimbladder infections.
However, swimbladder infections often cause secondary deformation that is irrepareble in spite of treating the bacterial infection successfully. This may cause the fish permanent problems with its swimming position.
