Does being fat like show quality goldfishes are increase the chances of swim bladder disease ?

Sebastian is around five months old now.

As Sebastian ages and grow bigger, at what age will I know for sure Sebastian will not get swim bladder disease because he is growing up ?

Is there a cut of age that one would know that the goldfish will not get swim disease if the goldfish reaches that age ?

Yes, fatness encourages swim bladder disorders.  A fish can experience swim bladder disorder at any age.  I expect the incidence increases with age.

Remember that foods high in fat can make them fat. Also sometimes its all in the genetics of a fish. :)

Too bad that fatness is the standard of beauty in goldfish.

Having a nice  prize winning fat goldfish is a dream but a fat goldfish with swim bladder disease is a nightmare ! :yikes
