Does swim bladder disease occur in platys and how can you treat it?

Yes, unfortunately. My Red Platy is currently afflicted with Swim Bladder Disease. He is swimming erratically, and his buoyancy is off balance. I have quarantined him, raised the water temperature, added salt, even tried feeding him peas, now just hoping for the best.
