Order some fish in the new year and notice one wasn't the greatest. Sunken stomach and rough looking sides little whites when look from the side. Think he just got serious bloat or bad parisite. Like to know what I could do to save him. Rest are still doing great eating and active. Got espom salt aquarium salt and metro pills.
Pretty sure he's too ill and far advanced that he won't recover.
But anyone ever got a fish to recover when this servere?
Thank

Post a picture, it sounds like it might be columnaris.

Or if you would rather, Google columnaris and see if he looks like the pictures.

White patches on the sides is an indicator.

I would use Kanaplex which you can get online. It's serious, fast acting and contagious.
