He does look thin, but that can be fixed if his breathing issue is corrected. Starvation is the least of your problems.
You said he is rolling to his side? Does he have trouble staying upright?
Sounds like you're on the right track with the feedings, so keep trying! Remember to clean up anything he doesn't eat so it won't dirty the tank.
The filter goes off in medicated water so that it doesn't filter out the medicines. :)
I'm sorry let me try to be more clear: my filter only has a sponge inside, there is no carbon. The activated carbon, usually built into the filter cartridge, is what filters out the medication from treated tank water.
However, I just might have some good news! It doesn't look like he will be needing a second round of antibiotics! The treatment seems to finally be working and he is eating from the turkey baster :) Thanks for the tip on lowering the water level!
And thank you to everyone for your input, I will try to get some pictures of the elusive Toby to post. Keeping my fingers crossed!
