So I got this guy a week ago from a pet store for free cause he was sick. Now I have dealt with swim bladder disorder before but this is really difficult... I got him and heated him up to 80* F and gave him epsom salt up to 2 tsp/ gallon. He got better and started passing food and swimming up right and I let the water fall to 76* and he was fine I was moving him back to a tank which is near 80* but for some reason he started doing his side float thing again and stopped passing food. He looks expanded all down his body especially near his tail. His body next to his tail is swollen but he isnt pine coning in any way. I moved him from his little half gallon which is where he was after he got better to a gallon bowl.
In a half gallon water changed 100% everyday
Feed 1 pellet a day
and was being weened of epsom salt
In a gallon changed 100% everyday
heated to 80*
not being fed
back to 1 tsp/gallon of epsom salt
He is more bloated then before and now looks like when I got him :( I feel like I put him back in this state. What can I do for him? If pictures would help I can post some tomorrow.
