So I don't know if I ever came on here, but my veil tail that had been dealing with what we thought was Dropsy (bloating, lethargy, gasping for air, pineconing) finally passed away a few weeks ago. That leaves me with 2 boys who are in a 10 gallon tank, divided.
The older of the two boys, that I got in November of 2010, has started bloating. No other symtoms, and not a full body bloat with pineconing like my past fish. Just a belly bloat. I have been feeding him 2 pellets twice a day but for the past few days have cut it down to 1 pellet twice a day.
Can I start treating with epsom salt and Maracyn Plus without quarentining him? Or is there another route I should go with this? It's almost impossible to get pictures because I can hardly get a good look at him myself. When I approach the tank he dances around like usual.
