I've kept goldfish in tanks in the past, each of which suffered from swimbladder problems either occasionally or frequently. If a daily or twice-daily pea with its shell off, and cut into small morsels, didn't work after a few days, then I used aquarium salt. This often worked (90% of the time) within 24hrs, resulting in the fish being back to its normal self, and, if not, then I used swimbladder treatment or internal bacterial infection treatment. I'd definitely recommend aquarium salt treatment, particularly as we aren't yet sure if this is a swimbladder malfunction or not - usually the more obvious symptom is abnormal swimming behaviour or floating.
