He seemed somewhat back to normal when I got home and looked like he wanted food which he hasn't eaten in 2 or 3 days. He ate 4 pellets and I stopped, I normally give him 3. I just noticed you said to hold off on food, so not sure if it was good or bad that I fed him. I don't think he is bloated. I am posting pictures of him that were taken about a month ago and some just now for comparison.

yep, before today he wasn't eating and he is normally ready to eat anything. yes, lethargic floating at the surface, could have been exposed to ich, same water as the other one, but is still not showing any signs of ich. When he was lethargic he was also keeping his gills slightly open, today he isn't. I will run to the store and get the Epsom salt, I'd imagine I should still treat him even though he seems better today. ...and I don't know what tannins is.
