Quikly breath

Hi there,

My fish, Yuzuru, He looks like quikly breath and bottom of tank.

Is that stress or desease ?

His tank is 3 gallon, no chemistry.
I did water change which was learn from this site.
He looks like not good a few days ago.
PH7.0, no ammonia.

What can I do for him ?

Best,

Ok so for a 3 gallon you should be doing a 50% water change every other day to counteract the ammonia building up. I would give him a week of daily 100% water changes with de-chlorinater and some aq salt. He probably has some mild ammonia burn going and the clean water/aq salt will help.

+1 is the tank heated?

After the week is up, and he's hopefully all better, you can stop the aq salt and go back to normal water changes :) Keep us updated

Hello there,

My fish looks like good ! He didin't quick breath now. I will change water tomorrow, and I will stop the aq salt.
Thank you so much for your help.
I would like to know why epsom salt didn't use him ? Aq salt is better.


Thank you so much.

Aquarium salt is usually for external problems, while epsim salt is more for internal/bloat
