Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Yes. At first it was just bloating so we thought it was swimmer's bladder. We had him fast for a couple days and the bloating did go down some however not entirely. Then we noticed he appeared to have a bump on his side. So we did a full water change and started treating him for a bacterial (API T.C. Tetracycline) and fungal infection (API Pimafix). We did a 25% water change on day 2 and day 4 (yesterday) as per the instructions. The carbon in the filter was also removed.
