Poor guy just can't catch a break. He came to me with a swim bladder issue where he would just float to the top. After several weeks, that finally cleared up. He struggles with constipation quite frequently. Now he's got another swim bladder issue where he just sinks to the bottom. It takes quite a bit of effort to dart to the top for air, so mostly, he sits on top of the things close to the surface. I guess I'll be getting the espsom salts back out again. At this point, with his chronic constipation, I'm beginning to think I should just keep epsom salts in his tank indefinitely. Poor thing, at least he seems to be in good spirits and gets really excited when he sees me, even if he has to struggle to get food. (P.S. - yes I did fast him, and I do fast him quite often because of his constipation issues).
At least his tank neighbor is doing well and hasn't had any issues since she jumped out in September.
