I'll take note of this! My male had salt put in his tank because it benefited the plants I had in there, and my female had salt put in hers because she was sick for a while and lost her color - seemed to be doing better since there was salt in there. I'll lay off on the blood worms, I do have some Omega One pellets. As far as a heater, I have had trouble with them before, getting the water too hot and stuff but I'll try again. How can I help my female? I haven't seen her cause I haven't been home but if she's still alive do I just let it take it's course?

The last time I saw her she wasn't bloated, but I had a male before with Swim Bladder who just let it wear off and recovered after 3 days.

Hm... Most plants can't tolerate salt, weird. The Epsom Salt won't hurt. You could try that. Add in some IAL or washed dried Oak Leaves to add some tannins. Just try to make her comfortable as possible.

Salt seems to be the only way I can keep Anubias alive, lol. Thank you everyone for your answers and sorry if I seemed a little stubborn at first!

I couldn't even keep my Java Fern alive in QT. *Head Of Shame* :0
It's OK, you weren't really stubborn anyways. :) You have good intentions which is awesome, and you weren't even rude. I hope she gets better.

Me too and thank you! I will keep the salt out of their water unless it is absolutely necessary.
