*sigh* Bloating

Quicksilver is a pig. He ate some algae, now he's bloated. Can I just fast him? I mean do I have to give him some epsom salt?

Sorry, I came in late! Petco trip and all. Fast him for a few days. Did he eat the whole wafer? If he starts getting sudden swimbladder issues, well, you probably know to get him straight into QT with epsom salt, 1 tsp a gallon.

No, he seems fine other than the fact that he's bloated. I'll probably get a 10g from petco's sale and keep the cories in that.

I hate those algae wafers. They fall apart so freakin' easy and then they look like fish diarrhea. Wait, a 10g? I thought you didn't have any space!

That's good to hear. I can never tell if my HM is bloated, his ventral fins are always in the way. I think he'd have to be the size of a Macy's parade balloon before I could tell.
