Do you think I should do another water change (just did one) to get rid of the salt? Or would that be too stressful - it was just a small teaspoon.
Sorry, wrote this in a panic. I attached the best pictures I could get for now, he's in an awkward corner curled up and won't move. I'll try to get better ones. He's been looking fat for about a month so I started feeing him less pellets a day because I thought he may be over fed. I haven't noticed much else different in appearance besides some bumps around his head that I couldn't tell if they were always there and I didn't look close enough or not. It's part of his body, no color or protrusion; just lumpy.
