my bluejaw has had a swollen belly now for about a week and a 1/2-i thought he just was constipated becuase that is what i was told by someone-i still havent seem him poo so i guess this could be the problem---but i am wondering if its somthing else and what i should be doing right now to resolve this--i love this fish and would ahte to see him die. so far i have fed him shrimp soaked in epsom salt in case it was a bowel problem but it hasnt done anything i only fed it 1-2 times though...what can i do? is this possibly a parasitic problem and if so what medications do i need to get?
