Brought home another sicky last night. (I'll have to do an intro post on my other "patient", Christopher, later)
He's severely pineconed, bloated, and seems to have swim bladder issues. He doesn't swim around, basically just sits on his tail. When he does try to swim, he lists to the side or just flops over.
He's in a critter keeper right now, no gravel, with Epsom salt but I wondering if he's just too far gone. I'll post a pic in a bit, but it looks bad to me. His scales look almost straight out, and he has a grey belly. (Dropsy?) He hasn't pooped since I brought him home.
I can get my hands on Maracyn 1 and Maracyn 2 if need be.
Is it worth it to go ahead with treatment? I had planned on doing 100% water changes with ES as treatment. I didn't want to do Maracyn without seeking your guys' advice first.
As a side note, my work (I work in a petstore, this is where I keep getting fish!) only feeds the fish Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The lady who is in charge of animal care always gives a ton of pellets. Could that be the cause of the bloating/dropsy/SBD?
