    Hi there, again. I have a few more questions (shocker, lol). 1) is it okay for me to soak the pellets in metro and let them dry before feeding them so they don't sink right away?

    Also, Sakura suggested to try feeding Bahari metro for awhile and Kanaplex if it didn't help. He's still very bloated and floating on his side and I don't know why, but I can't feed him often because he is already so bloated and he bloats easily, but I'm afraid of any bad effects coming from treating the whole tank since I don't know what's causing this bloat issue. I think it may be a little too extreme for it to be just constipation. Then again, I don't know how common chronic and severe constipation is. He hasn't always had this issue.

    Just put it in!! Would you like me to pass it on to a few others? (madmonahan, bryanacute, perry the platypus, etc.)

    Hey, I saw the link in your signature about penn plax putting metal in their ornaments... do you mind if I put a link to it in my signature too? I'd like to help you spread awareness.

    Quick question: do I need to mix up Kanaplex in a separate cup and do I need to add it to the tank slowly?

    Oh, and I've got Kanaplex ordered! - Sakura thinks the bloat is caused by an internal bacterial infection.

    Bahari is my blind CT... He is not on the meds, just epsoms. He's been on Epsoms on and off... Because I do PWCs to remove the epsoms and have had to add more frequently after removing some, he's been on small amounts of Epsoms for awhile, now. He hasn't pooped that I have seen. His gravel is white and before, it was incredibly easy to find his poo because of its size. I've stirred up the water often to see if I can find any that fell into the plants and onto the decor... Nothing.

    He seems to get bloated worse at night then get better by morning, and get worse at night again, even without being fed. I never feed him more than one pellet a day because of this bloating issue and I have to fast him often. His belly is huge but it is not transparent. It is white... But it's always been white. I believe its just his coloring. No dull colors or anything. Just severe bloat and buoyancy.

    Oh my god. Bahari looks like he's going to EXPLODE. His gills are moving rapidly and are wide open and he is swimming around strangely and rapidly. I added more Epsom salt but I can't stand to watch him. He's floating and can't stay upright! :(

    Her fins look shorter in the second picture because of the angle. She was not cooperating, lol. But anyways, she's healing up quickly :)
