Well, it was just one of those days, but he finally passed 2 more movements and he's back to his normal size and swimming happy as a clam.

So, note to self, Epsom salt + Peas + time = happy fish

So the runt is stuffed up again :pinch:

I don't know why this time, I've been spacing out the feedings, doing smaller amounts more frequently, and giving peas ever few days.

I'm thuroughly confused as to why he keeps backing up. He was pretty bad this time, looked like he swallowed a marble, which for a discus is super bad.

Epsom salt bath time again, gonna be a long night

Oh he's doing fine, maybe just a thing I'll have to do on a regular basis. I mean I watch him eat and he's not gluttonous or anything, no more than the other fish anyway.

But as long as I'm able to keep snatching him from the jaws of death, then I'm ok with having a special needs little guy.

I'm glad he is pulling through. He's lucky to have a good keeper. :)

You should name him poopies, or something similarly ironic :P
