If it was only the hiding, I would agree possibly with the reasoning explaining that- it is his color change(Even though he is a white multi) in his face, His distended belly. He may be constipated, I cant really watch him enough to witness pooping. Now he is in an epsom salt tank with no decorations or gravel, so dropsy is being watched and I will see any produced poop b.c of the clear tank. :) Tank is sitting at about 85 currently.

Strips are really inaccurate. Did this strip at least give you numbers?

If you want to test ammonia you need a reliable drops kit like the one from API.

Can you please share photos?

What color is his poop?

What kind of water changes are you doing in the QT and what size is it? What temp is it? How much epsoms/gallon are in there?

Between 0 and 0.25. I would share photos but he passed during the night. He didnt poop while in solitary. I had just QT'ed him last night but I was planning on doing 100% every day for awhile. It was 84. 2 tsp/gallon where in the quarantine.
