Sounds like it could be a problem with its swim bladders. Swim bladder problems can be caused by bacterial infections so try a fish medication with antibacterial properties to see if helps. These medications can be purchased in the aquarium section of many pet stores. Gluck

what kind of pellet do you have? sinking or floating? if floating that is the main reason.. they swallow more oxygen when they searching for a food..
