You can go as high as 3tsp/gal with the Epsom if you make the change gradually. That could make him feel more comfortable. Unfortunately you won't see immediate improvement if it is a parasite since treating them takes time. I really hope he pulls through...

Unfortunately boy passed away sometime during the night . The tank looks so empty without him. He used to be so naughty like getting through the divider and 'owning' both sides of the tank.

Since I was concerned that he might have been infected with something transmittable, I poked his stomach with a pin to see if anything came out. Oddly enough, it was just all air (or clear fluid I couldn't see) and deflated back to its usual size. I'm suspecting there was some underlying organ failure or damage that caused his death.

Hopefully I don't see anything like this again. I think I'll just hit it right away with anti-bacterial meds instead of messing around with salt and fasting.

So sorry about your boy :( It sounds like he either had an abscess or was severely impacted... You did everything you could, sadly treating fish has it's limits. I'm sorry we couldn't be of more help.
