    i tried a salt bath for him last night for a half hour with not even 1/4th of a teaspoon in a one gallon tank and I think he looks a little better but it’s hard to tell, he is eating now though. I was wondering if I try this again and how often I should be doing this because I know it’s hard on fresh water fish.

    Can you post a couple of pictures of the fish?

    How long has the fish been fat for?
    Are the fish's scales sticking out sideways from the body?
    Is the fish still eating normally?
    Is the fish swimming around normally?
    What else is in the tank?
    How long has the tank been set up?
