Saltinthedesert Posted December 28, 2020 Share Posted December 28, 2020 I recently merged 2x 29g tanks into one 75g and just before I transferred my breeding pair of BN plecos, I noticed the male was SUPER bloated in his belly. The pics are before and after, but I don’t have a great one of him inflated. I tried giving him a shelled pea (a common remedy for constipation) but he’s not interested thus far. I’ve read dozens of blog and forum posts about salt being helpful but also dangerous for scale-less species. Many suggest halving the dose but few say what a safe dose is. If I was going to treat him in a 5 gallon hospital tank, how much salt, how often, and how long? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
