It'll take a couple days for the salt to start work on the worms, and then a couple more days for them to start passing.

He definitely looks like he's got worms with that big white belly. his poops should start being white once the worms start to pass.

Are his poops white?
Almost positiveee they're just normal colored, but I'll check again when I clean the tank tomorrow

just keep an eye on them. Once the worms start to die off they'll start passing through his system

Okay, nothing is happening ;-; His poop is still normal colored, still bloated, and if anything, he's starting to be lethargic

Should I be dissolving the salt before putting it in? I'd just been putting it in after water changes, but I read somewhere else to pre-dissolve it, so I just started doing that

Pre-dissolve it. It's not really going to help him like that.

Oh, OK. Pre-dissolve any salt you put in the tank. :) Hopefully, that will have more affect for his bloat.
