Epsom salt is a natural laxative for fish. It's one of the most common treatments for a swimbladder problem.

There was recently a long topic about a goldfish with a swimbladder problem, where bettababy had many helpful suggestions, including epsom salt. It might be worth reading:

Nope. Epsom salt is already a particular kind of salt. I guess larger grained is good, since your fish will have a chance to eat it before it dissolves.

Hello Everyone,

I forgot to post back here to keep you all updated. His light has arrived, and about a hour later it was on, he was swimming normal, and was just, well, normal!

Still couldn't get him to eat a pea, but hes fine now.

Sooo, thanks to everyone that helped me and my little buddy to stay alive!!
