I have a firemouth with bloat that has been going on for several days and I have been administering espom salt at 1tbsp per 10 gallons, Api general cure and pimafix, today I am doing an epsom salt bath at 1tbsp per gallon for 20 min. Crazy thought that I have been considering for a last ditch effort and she will likely die is adding some human diuretic (furosemide)to her water. She isnt eating at all, her breathing is labored and she did appear to poop the long stringy whitish poop that I have read about today. She has also developed an extra pouch on the ventral part of her abdomen. TIA
55 cycled tank parameters are okay (ammonia mildly) elevated, .5 cant figure out why) we recently transported her 15 miles and this is the result.

Sorry I did not see this post earlier...I can't offer help since I have never treated anything but mbuna for bloat. If he had bloat the General Cure should have helped at least a little. How is your fish?
