Do not feed and slowly top up water when you see Aro submerge. Good luck.

juz to share my exp,
i got this big red tat suffers from trapped air for very long (ard 4mths) .
.was in a 5ft tank when it occur...transfered to 6ft fgt...also same.
tried releasing the trapped air...was ok for a while...den came back.

Nw rented a pond 6m x 3m and transfered it over.
It no longer stay at the top so often...most of the time...swiming below.
I believe the length of the pond cured it as it has more than enuf swiming space for it to play ard.

Could it be the natural elements that is in the ponds help to heal the issue?

Question: when you first transfer to the pond is it still the same floating at the surface or after a while it started to swim below?

My red had the same problem last week. It wouldn't dive and only swam at the water surface with its back above the water for a couple of days.

I dosed with Epsom salt and cured it in less than 24 hours. I believe the Epsom salt enabled the trapped air to be released due to the property of the substance as a laxative.
