I'm reviving this post only because I have a question that is relevant to earlier parts of this post---
the fish is doing quite well, but I'm noticing that he tends to swim downward and then float back up (and repeat) leading me to believe he's not completely done with the swim bladder issue. I have been giving him some epsom salts but he won't eat it--and if he does, he spits it back out.

Anything else I should do? It doesn't seem to be as big/bad as before, I'm just trying to make sure I prevent it from getting any worse. I'm still sinking all of his food (and to update I now have a 10 gallon tank for him).

Suggestions?

Try fasting him for 2 days, and then feeding him a pea (take a frozen one, soak it in warm water to thaw, and then take it out of it's little skin). Swim bladder problems are not really something with a specific cure. I does sound like it's getting better though, so I would just continue to monitor it, to make sure it's still going in the right direction, and give it time.
