Gee thanks for that comment lol I get it, I get it. He would also be more swollen. So continue treating him for constipation. I had one int he summer who was extremely constipated, but he died after a month (from his refusal to eat). You are doing a better job treating him tho.

Did that sound harsh? D: I didn't meant it to if it did...sorry ;>.>

I'm trying my best man. I get a lot of sympathetic looks like: "Why would you care about a fish this much." or "Just get it over with, there's nothing you can do." but I'm pretty determined to try whatever I can with my limitations.

I'll look into get some roobias tea like someone suggested earlier and see if the tannins will help him at all. It might have to wait a few days though. I'll also get some NLS pellets but I'm not sure feeding him would be the best idea right now. Maybe some peas....

Sirius has gotten worse since adding the salt to his tank (I reduced it to 1 tsp after realizing I added too much.) He's gone milky in color and is lying completely on his side now. I've checked the package and it says it's 100% magnesium sulfate...
I did find what looked like a white blob floating on the top of the tank? And when I took it off the surface of the water it was slimey....I don't really know what that means because the whole tank had been thoroughly cleaned when I did a water change.

I think it would be wise to go back to plain fresh water because he doesn't seem to be reacting well to the salt.
