Last night I was loving my fish when I noticed one of my female a. borelli was bloated, it really just looked like it ate a lot but it was swimming kind of disorientated. then this morning she was dead. Her stomach was missing but I think that was a blue ram, discus, cory or another a. borellii. Any Ideas? I'm not an expert on fish diseases or cures. Ick is the only one I've yet to combat.

Metrondizole, Clout, Jungle parasite, Epsom salt all work for bloat.

but it needs to be caught before actual bloating unless it was float then it's swim bladder was messed up.

I look at my fish everyday. She was fine earlier in the day that night she was bloated. What do you mean float? I know the symptoms of swim bladder disease. This fish was more like swimming really drunk. Slow and uncoordinated. What ever this is/was, is it contagious? Any better idea of what it could be?
