    I would start him on Epsom salt 1tsp/gal and 100% water changes daily-then on day 3 increase the Epsom salt to 2tsp/gal along with the 100% daily water changes for 7 more days...if you have tannins add them too-I like to pre-mix my treatment water in a 1gal jug of dechlorinated water-add the salt and tannins and use this for the water changes everyday-be sure and get the pre-mixed treatment water to temp and shake well before use and cover the top of the QT with plastic veggie wrap to keep the air above the water warm and humid for the labyrinth organ-if he is eating fed small amount several times a day

    hey OFL..i need some personal help. I have a fish that lays on his side and has trouble getting air at the top and swimming in general. I have lowered the water level in the tank so he can get to the air easier but idk what else to do. He is a fighter and has lasted almost a month past when i expected him to go. Please help Thankies

    They are but they can tolerate low range of tropical temps in the upper 60'sF and with yours being in the 70'sF range they would work fine- even regular guppies would work in that temp

    Endlers and white clouds come to mind....depends on the tank size....also, shrimp can tolerate a bit cooler water...but too low and they may not reproduce and/or die..same with plants...you want to keep the temp at least in the upper 60's

    Get him out of the container that had poison in it and if you have anyway to get him in a tank with a filter and new activated charcoal for 24 hr would also help him...good luck
