Common SB autopsy

Recommended Posts

One of our common goldfish started standing on their nose - nose to the bottom of the tank, struggling to back off the bottom to breathe. I did move him to QT, but he died overnight. Externally, a few dark spots on scales, slight fraying at edges of fins.  Autopsy revealed completely fluid filled swim bladders. Small red spots adhering to other organs. Other fish in the tank are doing fine.

Forgot to mention, his body was obviously swollen and bloated on his sides and belly.

Thanks.

We have seen post with collapsed swim bladders. I was just wondering if anyone knew what could cause the fluid filled swim bladders.

The swelling and bloating suggests a massive bacterial infection which also damaged the swim bladders.
