He is no longer flipping over and is chilling calmly in a net at the top of the main tank. I put him back in because I wasn't sure how long he could be in the epsom salt. He has taken four very big poops and can now hold himself upright. I was going to give him another epsom salt bath tomorrow morning if he is still having troubles. Should I do that or should I try epsom soaked pellets?fact that he is eating and pooping is great. Probably bloated from the new food source ( pellets). I am a big pellet fan but I would add them gradually to his diet. Is he still flipping over? If so move him to a small very shallow tank so he doesn't have to fight for bouncy and can breath easily. Continue with the salts like you are and feed he regular diet
White poop can be a sign. Sounds like it is most likely too many pellets too fast. Think of a kid who got a hold of the whole Halloween candy bag- floating upside down, until it’s mom makes them eat their vegetables-peasIf it is parasitic, are there other signs I can look for? I haven't seen any odd lumps or red streaks.
