Thanks for the advice.This is only the second day of the salt. If he doesn't improve soon I'll go to the store for a bacterial medication. I know I have some tetracycline but it's probably past it's expiration. Is there any medication that would treat both parasites and bacteria?
I'm still thinking that this seems like constipation because he hasn't passed anything in several days, but I suppose it could be parasites. I've never ha a fish with parasites before so I wouldn't know it if I saw it.
And Blue Fish- I just added the Epsom salt to his tank. I'm thinking that when I clean his tank tomorrow I'll give him the 20-minute treatment in the half-gallon bowl, but I've never done that before so I wanted to try this first.
