Unfortunately I only have lavender scented epsom salts (well I also have these other plain ones, but they are soooooo old I don't know if I can trust them/would only use them in an emergency). Though apparently brine shrimp might help them go? Which might have been the reason I even noticed parasites in the first place since he would only eat them (I got them about 2 weeks ago and that was the first time since I had him he ate regularly). Now he is eating some of my spectrum crumble. :)
I did one more treatment, and will do another in a few days. I get my wisdom teeth out in the morning, so wish me luck with a water change tomorrow (and also, I might be rather out of it so if I post something completely off the wall you know why!). Right now he is actually up at the top of the water cruising around! Smaug flared at him, but he just ignored it (though his back was turned, so I am not even sure he saw Smaug flare...). Just the fact that he is at the surface is major progress. Before he would just lay at the bottom of his tank (not dieing, just... there).
I am just so happy he is perkier! He is so pretty, I just like being able to see him! Thank you again!
