Bloated Ram

I know this has been posted before and I tried feeding it peas a few times but it just wouldn't eat the peas or anything else at all. Anything more I can do to help or is it inevitable?

I feed a mix of frozen blood worms, freeze dried worms and flakes once a day. I was away for a week and my brother fed the tank but I don't Th ing he soaked the flakes or freeze dried worms before feeding so I think that did but what can I do now?

Probably sorted one way or another but epsom salts is the only other thing I can think of trying.

No resolution as of a couple days ago but I haven't tried Epsom salt yet. I'll give that a go and update here if that works.

Thank you so much!

So the fish didn't make it. I tried Fungus Guard tablets from Big Al's, large water change, increased temperature to 84, tried feeding peas and nothing worked.

Thanks for the help anyway Delapool.

Def wasn't fungus..poor thing was all clogged up. In the future try and stick to frozen and quality flake. Blood worms on once or twice a week. Frozen brine shrimp is my go to.

Yeah I figured that's what the issue was. I had to leave for a bout a month or so and my brother fed my tank. He fed the freeze dried worms and frozen worms every day. I've cut the feeding schedule to flake food every other day and frozen blood worms only on Fridays.

Thanks for the help guys, really appreciate it.
