Need urgent advice for very sick flowerhorn

I having very smart flowerhorn 1 year old, as i was out of station 1 week ,i observe that his one side stomach is bloated , and not eating any thing.

I tried to give him epsom salt (magnesium sulphate ) bath but no result.
i guess it is constipation problem and read that its very risky..
can anyone help me what i can do best to save him. after salt bath he becomes active and chasing other fish but no waste disposal...


I am attaching his both side photos to more understanding.Your help can save him please fast i have no days left

Try injecting some epsom salt solution mixed with pellets...let the pellets soak in the epsom salt solution and crush them. Then u inject it in the fhs mouth. Do this treatment for 4 to 5 days. Let me know what happems after that

Peas have helped with this many times before with this. If he's not eating starve him for 3 days with absolutely no food and then throw some peas in without the shells...if that doesn't work I recommend API full spectrum antibiotics. That worked as well just expensive to treat a large aquarium. Hope this helps

Just a note, that could also be a blockage and not just constipation. It could be an infection, and definitely try the peas and the epsom salt, but if it's a blockage it'll have a harder time clearing than just constipation in my experience.

If you were away for one week, did he eat anything?
