    I just found out that Jewel (my female beta) has swim bladder. The pet store told me to feed her peas, but before I thawed them, I found your site about diseases. Now I'll get some epsom salts tomorrow and hopefully, my bro-in-law can find some NLS or omega one. How long should I fast her for?

    Is it feasibly possible to like . . . pull the poo from him with tweezers? A tiny bit is sticking out but it's just not passing, even after a 3rd dose of mineral oil. And should I attempt to feed him frozen daphnia? I haven't given him any food since this started but I'm at a loss of how to help him get rid of this blockage.

    Hey DarkMoon, thanks for the input you gave Sakura regarding my male with the hematoma in his gills. I appreciate your help :)

    Half the waste is still in there. o.O I gave him a second dose today so we'll see how it goes. You're right, force-feeding a fish is actually a lot easier than it sounds. If worse comes to worse, I guess I'll just take him out of the water and "pet" him once a day to get him to go.

    Okay, DarkMoon, I got the mineral oil. I put a tiny amount in a bent nose eyedropper and made sure the tip of the dropper was saturated in it and put him on a damp paper towel. When he opened his mouth, I got the dropper in and swabbed it around. Hopefully that was enough mineral oil. You'd said a tiny, tiny amount so I definitely didn't want to OD him on it. If the mineral oil didn't work, apparently me handling him had an effect. Half of the waste is out now. Thanks for the advice. :)
