He is not bloated and his poop is normal with no white. Can you do half AQ half epsom? Kai and Spike share a 10 galon tank but were only together for like... 10 minutes because we saw Spike was not well and removed him. We have noticed an improvement In mobility from the AQ salt but he still is just chilling at the top. We literally just switched him from his cup to our old 2.5 galon tank and since then he is slightly on his side again. I sent my fiance on a hunt for epsom salt.

If the fishy has bouyancy issues, Epsom is best for the internal issues, do not mix both salts, only one at a time, and give 48 hrs rest in beetween for external issues with AQ salt if needed..but you will need to do daily water changes..and replace salt as you go..

My fiance just told me he noticed his spine is kind of s shaped and before he didn't look bloated but he does now but could that be because he just ate?

Is it normal for them to get pale when in epsom salts?
