Epsom salt at 3 tsp/gal should be used instead to combat the fluid buildup and make him more comfortable.
Thanks. I added only the epsom salt when I did the water change today, but only at 2 tsp/gallon. Maybe tomorrow I'll up it to 3 tsp/gal. I will say he doesn't look as bloated now and he's swimming a little more and is upright. He's also showing some signs of appetite, which he hadn't for a while.
Is it overkill to use both Maracyns PLUS General Cure?
The bad news is that I accidentally suctioned out my algae shrimp and dumped it out with the water when I did the water change this morning...Oh well.
