*** got a bloated green terror who floats around with the current. She was sitting on the bottom for like 2 days when I first noticed. Now she's just floating around. Is it bloat? Should I try feeding thawed peas or spirulina flake? Should I treat with meds? please help. I don't want to lose her.

Try epsom salt at 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons to see if it loosens her up enough to poo - sounds like she's already far into the advanced stages though.

This needs to be moved into the disease/illness forum for better replies.

A moderator will come by and see it soon enough to move it.

Unfortunately if it is bloat there isn't a whole lot that can be done into the advanced stages - but you should get better advice over there.

You can get a head start by going to that forum now and looking at the Sticky Threads, then answering all of the questions posted in those threads on here.

nevermind guys, she can barely move and she's so pale I'm pretty sure she's gonna die today or tomorrow. I must have stressed her out at some point, probably with sudden temperature changes. My heater can never keep the temp in between 74 and 88. It drives me nuts.
I gave her a bath in a 5 gallon bucket treated with jungle clear which is the only med *** got at the moment. Anyways, next time I'll start treating as soon as I see signs of different behavior. thanks for all yer help.
