Hi, just wondering if any of you know whats wrong with my oscar. He seemed disinterested in food one day and I thought I noticed an enlarged bum and also bulging eyes. He's in a hosptial tank atm and am treating him with Dymax Endo Plex but doesn't seem to be getting any better.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I may try epsom salts as a last resort as he seems bloated. Would it be safe to combine epsom salts with his current medication (Dymax Endo Plex)?

I wouldn't combine medicines. Try fasting him for a few days.

Epsom salt is recommended to be used at one tablespoon/US 5 gallons of water for 3 days. Does this sound like an accurate dosage?
