"I recently added two smallish Bala sharks to our planted aquarium. They showed a horrible outbreak of Ich after 3-4 days which I assume they brought in with them since I have never had it in my tank before. I have been treating them ~2 weeks now and one has recovered and the other is almost free of ich spots, but seems to be having swim bladder problems now and a little bit of cloudy eye (swam sideways a few days, now seems has to swim constantly to avoid sinking to the bottom). Does anyone know if the ich parasites ever cause swim bladder damage? Fish wants to eat all the time but has difficulty maneuvering to get food and is losing weight (probably from the constant swimming). I am unsure whether to try to treat or whether to give this one up as a goner due to swim bladder damage...any ideas?"
