Hi... I have a electric blue hap that has been sick with what seems to be bloat for about 2 weeks. He first showed signs in the tank by isolating himself, spitting food, increased breathing, and white feces. I put him in a hospital tank and started the regime posted on this discussion board for treating bloat with clout. It really did nothing, I had no signs of any improvements. Then I read another regime which stated to use clout at full strength 5 days, then give a 2 day break. If the fish isn't better then to do another 5 days, and keep repeating. The fishes belly has been extended as well. I am just wondering how long it takes to cure bloat? and if there is anything else I can try? Also how will I know when he is better? I am fairly new at this and have never had a sick fish. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
