What was once a stunning pink convict is now a poor suffering fish. This has been going on for over a week and he gets worse every day. I don't have a sick tank so using a 5 gallon bucket with a heater and an air stone. I cannot believe he is still alive. Medications don't seem to be curing him, just sustaining his misery. I don't have the heart to put him down...or watch him suffer any more. He looks like by morning he will explode
What shall I do? His anus is huge and clear...very odd. I just read about Epsom salt for swim bladder but do not have any on hand. What else works for swim bladder? Should I keep trying or put him down? What a sad end to his life.
