So I posted before, but his condition has become worse... I tried the epsom salt treatment recommended, but it hasn't helped so far... He's just lying on his side barely breathing... I noticed he has a slight case of popeye on one side... and he has had dropsy... He hasn't eaten in a week but he doesn't appear emaciated, he is bloated though... If provoked, he will go up and get air, clumsily... I never gave him anti bac medicine since I have no good method of transportation to get some, and from fear of not correctly diagnosing and wrongly administering them... I now am convinced he had some sort of bacterial infection... But I feel I can rule out TB since his symptoms were/are:
loss of appetite
just on the bottom of the tank
slight loss of color (now more so)
some tattered fins (no reason for him to be since there is no deco in his qt tank)
no lesions anywhere on his body
I must add the conditions in the water were likely very poor.. But I've started doing water changes every three days to make it better. I still have 3 kuhli loach in there, all doing fine.
Any advice will help... I greatly thank Callistra for helping me.
