Goldfish floating surface

Goldfish floating surface unable to sink at will is normally caused by feeding too much food at one time. Feed less more often. When goldfish gorge, the food becomes impacted in the tract, blocking the gas exchange with the swim bladder organ. This organ fills like a balloon when the fish has the desire to rise, however, if the gas becomes trapped in the organ, the fish is unable to sink, and aimlessly floats at the surface

Depending on the severity of the floating issue, the fish may be at the very top of the water line, or just suspended off the bottom. This condition is very stressful for prey fish such as goldfish. They feel vulnerable at the surface, being bottom dwellers
