Please help me diagnose... I thought it was swim bladder disease or some kind of constipation so I gave him an Epsom salt bath yesterday and two days before
But this doesn't seem to have worked, he hasn't pooed for ages and if he has its only been the tiniest bit and I can't see it in his tank, also worried about fin rot now!! :( please help diagnose and advise on future treatment to cure and prevent!
My Wilson is not getting any better so please please help. I have been keeping up with daily 50% water changes and all he does is lay on the bottom and then come up for air. I have been fasting him for almost a week so I can't keep that up much longer without him starving?! Please help if you know what you're talking about!!! Because I just don't know what to do!!! Any suggestions are appreciated! Thank you.
Since this I have been using Epsom salt. It's been a week and I've seen no change in his behaviour and his fins seem like they are deteriorating.
I was advised to use 1 tsp Epsom salt to the gallon, remove all decor/gravel etc, lower the water line and attempt to feed just one pellet a day. (Thank you to the members for helping so far)!
He scales are now slightly raised and breathing looks like gasping!!!!
Since this he is still just laying flat on the bottom, his fins look like they are deteriorating and he now will not eat!!!!!! :(
I need any suggestions! I'm short on money at the moment just FYI....
Please suggest any other things I can do to help him.
