My fish Robin I put him into QT. with aquarium salt and IAL after my divided tank failed and my fish jumped sections. While hes been in QT. I decided to take the divider out of the 10 gallon tank and just get another tank for Robin once his fins are healed...So now he is temporarily in the 1 gallon until I can find him a nice big home. Qt tank doesnt have a substrate..with 100% water changes daily it has been pretty obvious to me he hasn't been pooping! It has almost been 8 days and he is starting to look quite round...Despite that he is acting ok...He just made a nice big bubble nest...I am not sure if I should try to treat his constipation somehow or just keep fasting him and see if he ever poops?
