Thanks DQ. With the good advise from the helpful members Im getting a better idea of what Im dealing with here. The Moose is hanging in there the fella is one tough fish. He is not pine coned and his belly seems smaller tonight but I didn't see a poop yet. We have him on Epson salts at 2 tsp combined with a dose of Kanaplex. He looks the same as last night which is good I guess. Poor guy is still super pale and grey streaks on his body but I still have some hope for him. The pic is from earlier today I thought I lost him but he is still going up for air and tonight is at least not on his side.

Thanks Matt. Oh boy was I happy to see Moose Man today! He isn't sinking, has some color back and is much more normal. Im totally shocked he looks this good. Changed water and started rd 2 of Kanaplex.

Hey CJ, I got a nice photo of Moose when I was there that shows his size relative to the thermometer, can I post it? (If I can figure out how. Lol.)
