Very bloated mbuna please help

SaveThemAll1

hi, 3 days ago she started to bloat. at first it was mild and she was eating and acting normal the day after that she continue ti bloat and yesterday i stopped feeding. today ive trued to feed a bit and she didnt wanted to eat. her behavior is changed-the other fish chaces her off which never happened before and she seems to lost her territory. ive sepretaed her today to a quarantine.

she is eating algea based mbuna food and was in a 300L tank with 3 other mbuna, water p are 0,0,10 and there is an ex filter 2200 l/h. doing 30%wc every week.what do you think is the problem?

Demeter

Either egg binding or Malawi bloat IMO. For either one I would be treating with antibiotics and add a bit of epsom salt to the quarantine tank. Keep the tank warm and add a filter with cycled media, or change the water often to keep ammonia and nitrite down. Do not feed for now, only try feeding when she seems to be improving.

thanks, i read about reccomended treatment with epsom bath, theres a vid of a fish vet that explaining on it, however the dosage he is reccomending seems vey high, much higer then everywhere else. he is recccomending of 30g per liter for 30 min dip and everywhere else i read 15 gram for 4 liter for 30 min dip..
