Idont know if you know but its always best to rehydrate freeze dried foods as much as possible before feeding, To lesson the risk of constipation/bloating which also when a fish is constipated/bloated puts pressue on the swim bladder.

The decaff Green tea and epson salt SHOULD help.

Unhappy

:/ The new fish(who I decided was Apollo) is only seeming to get worse... I have him in the salt dip with conditioned water and everything... He's only getting more lethargic and has now stopped eating... I don't know what to do. He's just slowly deteriorating.

So... He's still not doing well... He's still just slowly getting worse. He's still floating lopsided or sideways... Floats near the top... And he's stopped eating. He's not reacting to being treated for the fin rot... Am I fighting a lost cause? Is there anything more I can do? :(

DON'T use Epsom salts when a fish was in bad water, it puts a large strain on their kidneys.

Most important thing you can do with a rescue fish is give them time to become clean before you start any major treatment.
