If they are eating it is not bloat so I would not do metronidazole. Maybe just do the Epsom salt.

Save the meds for when you have a diagnosis else they will not work when you need them.

With Africans, Epsom salt can be used as a permanent additive to increase water hardness.

What is your test result for GH? From the tank? From the tap?

You have already added it correct? Once you start getting normal feces, you can decide based on the hardness whether to omit the Epsom salts from new water during partial water changes, or keep it as a permanent additive.

Are you getting normal feces? If not I would keep the Epsom salts level when you do your water change.

The length is not important. Thick and food colored is what you want.
