The tank is 55 gallons
In the tank I have Yondu, 6 guppies, 6 neon tetras, and a nitrite snail.
The temp is 78F/25C
Ph is 7.6
Ammonia is 0ppm
Nitrite is 0ppm
Nitrates is 5ppm
I feed a pinch of tropical fish flakes once a day in the morning. Occasionally ( about once every 2-3 weeks) I substitute the flakes for blood worms, again feeding a pinch. They eat all the food in about 3-5 minutes. I change about 20-25% of the water every sunday.

Are the bloodworms freeze dried? If so, do you soak them before feeding?

I would fast the entire tank for a few days, then feed them all deshelled, blanched peas - that might help if it's bloat or a swim bladder issue.

I would not add salt to the whole tank, personally. Some fish and plants are sensitive to salt.

Sorry for not responding sooner, unfortunately when I woke up Saturday morning he had passed. Everyone else in the tank seems to be healthy but I will continue keeping a close eye on them. Thank you to everyone who tried to help. I really appreciate it.
