If yes, that is dropsy and is linked to the internal bacterial infection. Again no cure.
You can try a big daily water change and raise the temperature a couple of degrees. If it's not an internal infection, this can sometimes help.
I haven't seen him poop... but theres nothing stringy thats been hanging off him.
I did notice pineconing on one side so I guess its the dreadful dropsy disease.
Any idea how dropsy is contacted or any possible cures?
I'll try a water change tomorrow...after the epsom salt bath today I dont want to stress him out anymore today.
Should I feed him right now or let him fast for one or two more days?
