Update: she's already showing signs of improvement. She can swim again and her buoyancy issues aren't as be but she's still big and has the curved spine thing. Looks the same but can swim better

Those stripes look red... Septicemia, maybe? I am pretty confident about the Epsom salts being okay, since they are mild... But hopefully Callistra is around so she can look at the last pictures you posted.

Here's some info on Septicemia please tell me if this sounds about right:
Quote:
•Symptoms: Bloody red streaks across the body and/or fins, lethargic, loss of apetite, clamped, gasping for air, bloated, ulcers.
•Treatment: Septicemia is caused by an internal bacterial infection. From what I’ve read, it can be due to compromised digestion as a result of rapid drops in temperature. Since Nitrite poisoning can also cause red streaks, check for that first. I do not know if it can be treated conservatively as I have never tried. Though it is not contagious, isolate sick fish. Perform daily 100% water changes. Treat with API Tetracycline, API Erythromiacin, Mardel’s Maracyn II OR Jungle’s Fungus Clear/Eliminator. If you are treating with something that does not contain Metronidoxole then combine the treatment with Jungle’s Anti-Parasite pellets. During treatment, use 1tsp/gal Aq.Salt and Stress Coat (as directed on bottle) to help prevent secondary infections.
I am glad its not contagious.

No she is definately hungry. She acts like she's starving and when she was with the sorority would steal food. She has a lot of energy. She's not clamped either.i don't think she had bloody red streaks either. All the red in her she's had since we got her.
