Why Is My Tropical Fish Swimming Upside down?

Answer

A tropical fish may swim upside down due to a loss of equilibrium, caused by swim bladder problems. The swim bladder is an air filled sac that helps the fish maintain balance when in the water, when the fish deflates or inflates it. There may be other causes though such as disease, so contact a veterinarian who can give the correct diagnose and solution.
