Hi, she's fed a mixture mainly because of my elephant noses, frozen meat, pleco wafers and veg not at the same time! Sunday I don't feed them.
I'm seriously thinking of an Epsom salt bath I don't want to lose her.
You can see she's really bloated

What kind of meat and plecowafers?
Might be a problem to digest certain food (proteins).

Hikari wafers or pellets. Bloodworm, brine shrimp, daphnia and chopped frozen prawn but these are for the elephant noses, I haven't been putting anything in for 2 days. I'm seriously thinking of giving her a Epsom salt bath.

Okay that all sounds good to me.
I don't have any experiences with the use of Epsom salt.

She sadly died this afternoon 😔 😢 I don't think I'll be buying anymore plecos for my elephant nose tank as I'd hate to lose anymore.
Thank you for the help.
