How long should I wait before I start to treay him. I only just noticed him being bloated when I came home tonight after work to feed him dinner. I've had him almost a week and he's been doing really well since I brought him home. He brightened up and has since made TWO bubble nests. Anyway, I was mainly wondering if I should start treating him for bloat what concentration of Epsom salt.
