bloated

ok Nero was ok this morning, hes been a little on the fat side the while time ive had him ive fasted him twice in three weeks (three days at a time)
and cut his pellets from 3-4 down to one or two. tonight he had brineshrimp (frozen, thawed in a small amount of tank water), after wards he was really really fat and bloated and even laid on the tank bottom watching lady T in her tank beside him.
Im going to fast him for a few days but is there anything i can do to help him? I cant get any medication for a few days or a week

Try doing an epsom salt treatment using 1 tsp/ gallon and heating the water to about 82*F. OldFishLady knows more about this then I do I would pm her. I hope he gets better.
