Hello,

My gold severum has had a pretty dramatic prolapse for the past 5 days. I've dosed the tank with 1 table spoon of Epsom salt per 10 gallons during this time, but haven't seen any improvement. How long should I continue this for? At this point, is there much hope that he will recover?

Anyone have suggestions? I hate seeing him like this. His stress bars are starting to show.

Thanks RD! Based on your advice in that thread, I should be able to double my dose of Epsom salt. Could that cause any problems for my geophagus or Columbian tetras?
