Thing with the General Cure is it is a tad expensive. I don't want to order it then it turn out I need something else instead you know?
You really should start a stockpile of meds. General Cure is a fairly commonly used med. If you don't use it this time, you'll probably use it in the future. If you have a pet store nearby you could pick it up there instead of ordering it. PetSmart, PetCo, and anywhere with fish should have it. It's around $15.00.

Oh, I found it off Amazon for $10. I have Prime so I can have it shipped within a couple days. Thinking about grabbing General Cure as well as Kanaplex since both I have seen are widely used. Things like fungal cure and stuff I can grab at a later date if needed.

Going to up his dosage to 3tsp tonight and see if that does anything. If not, what do you think I should get to treat him with?

Did you order General Cure and/or KanaPlex? If you can I would get those two. Maybe, if you can afford it (and you aren't allergic) get some API Triple Sulfa too.

There aren't any buoyancy problem right? Just the swelling?

No it's just swelling. I haven't ordered it yet. I will probably tonight.

Update: Still swollen on both sides, left more than the right. General Cure will be delivered Friday. Today when I changed him he had a bubble nest at the top of his bowl, so he can't be feeling too bad. He was flaring at me last night also.
