Suddenly bloated

what do i do if my fish is suddenly very bloated. I think he may have eaten some of the glowfish food. is he going to be ok?

get him into his own tank (preferably a one gallon) and introduce 2tsp per gallon of unscented epsom salt. It acts as a laxative and will help fast track that food out of his system

not a problem! they sell it at most big chain stores. it might be in the cleaning section or the gardening section. just make sure its unscented and your all good.
