There is a treatment for sunken fish.

From time to time, we see fish (mainly goldfish and koi), present with swimbladder disorders. Often they present with excessive buoyancy and float uncontrollably to the water surface. Here are a couple of examples:• catfish – https://youtu.be/rZlySKJkULg
• goldfish – https://youtu.be/SOMjZHW_gy4

Sometimes, the opposite happens, and they stay sunk on the tank floor.

For some time now, I’ve not been able to find a way to treat "heavy" fish. I’ve had minimal success with re-inflating a shrunken swimbladder.

Our colleague in the USA has pioneered the treatment for curing a sunken (negatively buoyant) goldfish.
