Pleco with swim bladder or bloat
I have been researching the epsome salt bath but I can’t find out how often to give him a bath. I just did a bath with 1tablespoon per gal for 15 min. Moved him to another bath with 1/4 tablespoon per gal for 5 min then back in his tank. There is not much change this quick But how often do I give the bath. Pleco’s and salts don’t mix very well. Anybody have any advice?
did you try feeding it cooked peas? i dont know the exact ways to prepare the peas but i have read they are very good at treating bloat. maybe another member can chime in on how to prepare them?
Over Stocking Only Becomes A Problem For The Fish When They Can Feel It, But It Becomes Your Problem When They Feel It.

You may also have to fast the fish for a few days beforehand, if it is food induced bloat. Hope that helps!
