Two days ago this fish starting floating at the surface. It's acting really strange. It's alive but it just floats at the surface. What's wrong with it? How do I make it better?

Sounds like an airbladder problem

I believe that's the same sort of thing that happens to goldfish when they eat too much. They get constipated and it affects their swimbladder. Give it a few more days to get all the extra food out of itself.

So what should I do to help? Do I need to catch it and give it's belly a squeeze or something?

i just googled myself OP over feeding causes food compaction which puts pressure on your fishes airbladder. Feeding your fish peas ever once in a while will give him softer stool and will fix or prevent it. dont feed him peas daily though
