Black Moor has swim bladder disease. It won't eat, looks like it is getting better one minute, then is barely moving the next. What to do

The other goldfish is doing great. They were given to me and I do not know much about them. The tank buddy has the long flowing fins as well, but no bulging eyes and more gold scales on it. The black moor that is sick keeps floating to the top, belly side up. It seems one minute the fish can't control it and tires of fighting it and hangs out like that for a long time. Then the next time I look, it is swimming around pretty well, but is still floating to the surface.

You can feed peas to your Black Moor in a contained area. This can help it a lot . In this area it will not be pushed around by other tank mates or the current, a breeding net is much better as it helps a lot. You can use frozen peas, thaw them and then feed them and withhold food for a few days while feeding the peas. You should also let a vet check on the black Moor.

It is rejecting the peas. It has been. Today the fish has been swimming great, but still wouldn't eat. Now it is on the bottom, belly up. Feeling a little lost. To the vet we go I guess.
