light coloration beneath his mouth is just the color of his skin. his body, except for his belly and head is sooo skinny. not sure why he's not moving. he barely moves. when and if he swims around he'll be twitching. he sometimes would seem to twitch more when he swims now (which is not often).
yes, i do daily 100% changes and use recommended dosage of epsom salt and and medicine. although, tonight in his food container put two tsp of epsom salt and a quarter amount of api gc packet in the water inside the food container?
yes, he's still very unactive.
will keep some water over night with no conditioner to acclimate it before i change his water and redose everything tomorrow...

Somethimes belly can change the color because of the parasites in the stomach. Not sure why his belly change the color. If he indeed has internal parasites then it might be the reason

Not sure why he is less active. Raise the temp slowly up to 84*. Do you do daily water changes? And don't lower the dose of the epsom. And you just redosing the medications right?
It really good that he is eating. And it good that at least he takes pellets with garlick , even though he spit them out. I think that garlick juice will get inside.

.

If you will keep water over night you still can put conditioner. I do it all the time. Poor baby. If he is eating keep feeding him. You can feed him even 3 times a day . I am really thinking that it internal parasites. With internal parasites fish will loose weight despite eating.

Tomorrow you can even increase epsom to 3 tsp/gall. Sorry i hope he can get better. Epsom salt don't hurt him at all.
