SBD options?

One of my little boys has been unable to swim properly for at least a month now. Mostly he just lays on the bottom. He got about a week of Ep. salt treatment, and then 2 weeks of Myacyn 2. He eats fine, poops fine, not pineconed or bloated. He's been in a quarantine tank with shallow water for the duration at 80 degrees.

I don't have any ideas for you, but wanted to say I hope the little guy gets better soon.

He might have a permanent issue. Low water levels and a constant dose of epsom salt might be his best bet, or even just lower water.

If you do use epsom salt long term, I'd go with .5 tsp/gal or less and regular water changes.
