He was perfectly fine when I was feeding him the night before, he's been in there about 2-3weeks and the tank was done fishless cycling for about 3-4weeks. I've been feeding them tetra color, and hikari freeze dried blood worms.
One of my gouramis got sick a week before and bloated up and had weird masses all over his body, I put him in a small hospital tank with and higher dosage of salt to absorb out the bloating, he looked alot better after three days and i change the water everyday. I put him back in the tank and his color was coming back. I dosed the guy with paraguard and melafix while he was in there.
I acclimate my fish with turkey baster and dripping the tank water every 15 minutes.
