my white HM horton has just recently become bloated looking. it seems to come on all of a sudden. hes also been tailbiting more than usual. i think his tailbiting might be linked to me taking out a tank decoration because of paint issues, but i cant put it back in. i fed him 1 pellet tonight just so he thinks hes getting fed but hopefully itll help his stomach. ive looked for scales sticking out to make sure its not dropsy and i dont see any, but he makes it really hard to see anything with all his moving so im not entirely sure. also, he keeps opening his mouth to me more than normal(dont know if this is weird but he never used to do it). hes in a 2.5 gal heated tank and is fairly active, but seems dragged down by his fins so i dont want to put him in anything bigger. but my question is, should i put him in epsom salt for the possible constipation(i cant ever tell when he goes to the bathroom) or aq salt for his tailbiting.
