How do I get Epsom salt? Is it regular salt? How do I treat him? I'm sorry...I'm so worried!

Don't worry about treating him with Epsom for now, just fast him like Creat said.

But here's the salt info anyways:

Epsom salt can be bought at a Pharmacy, make sure it's plain, with no additives.
Dosage: 1 tsp/gallon, treat for 14 days recommended. Send a personal message to 'oldfishlady' for any specific questions.
It is most certainly NOT normal salt.

But like Creat and I said, just fast him until maybe Wednesday or tuesday evening.

2-3 days is fine with no food. Then you can start him on epsom salt, if his tummy doesnt go down. The goal is to get it to go away on its own. Epsom salt you can by at most stores, its sold as a bath additive usually but me sure to get plain un-scented un-dyed.
