Well, fish let out ammonia in more ways than one, so it's possible. Are you taking out all the uneaten food? Keep the ammonia at .25 or below, and if that means you have to do 2 pwc's a day, then that's okay. New water is less stressful than ammonia.

I fasted him yesterday because he was still bloated. I fed him today before I did the water change, and removed all the extra shrimp I could see (lost the pellets somewhere in my car lol) It probably doesnt help that I have only about 4 gallons (maybe 3) of water in there to cut down on the current. Is there any other way besides mesh?

I am not sure, mesh is the only thing I have used. Other people might have different ideas.

i may be confused or picturing this wrong, but how does lowering the water level cut down the current? wouldn't it make it stronger?

do you have any filter floss? just shove as much of it as you can in there

Think of a waterfall falling from somewhere high, and think of one falling from only 2 feet, with same amount of water. On the high one, by the time it gets to the bottom, it's alot of mist. The shorter one creates eddys in the whole area. I hope that makes sense.
