It can take a couple of days for the Epsom salt to have a laxative/fluid reducing effect. Overall, would you say he's the same, better or worse?
I'll post a photo tomorrow that shows the lump better. The first day I did 1/2 tsp/gallon (I thought I was using the 1tsp spoon. lol). Then the next day I did a 75% water change and added another 1/2 tsp of Epsom salt. Today I changed almost all if the water again and added 1tsp. of Epsom salt. He kind of seems worse today. He was breathing heavy earlier, and the edges of his fins are starting to look weird. I doubt it's fin rot because I've changed his water every day since I moved him to the hospital tank.
Oh, and I'm using one of those mini heaters without an adjustable thermostat so it fluctuates depending on the room temp but right now it's 82 degrees.
Help! I hate to see him looking so sick.
