Yellow Lab with Bloat?

I've been away all weekend and come home yesterday to see my male lab all bloated and breathing at a higher than normal rate. From research it sounds like bloat but I am new to fishdom and want to cover my bases. I went to the lfs and they recommended gently rub his abdomin. The sold me some antibiotic that I can't recall now (I'm at work:). Any ideas? He does not have any scales lifting or popeyes that I can tell. Thanks for your help! Deefish

New 20 gal tank with African Ciclids. Having a great time with them. Who knew fish had such personalities?

I've never heard of such method. A gag I guess.

Try green peas and continue monitoring him. Constipation is another possibility. Better to monitor first than to dump the antibiotics and end up putting him to the worse.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
