Update: Before treating @ 7am. All fish pretty much stuck the bottom all huddled in a corner.
12 noon. All fish swimming freely and some sifting through sand.
It might be too soon to tell but I haven't seen them this active in days. Looks very promising.

@troph69 yes bloat is the reason I'm treating them this way.

Only organs to worry about are the stomach and esophagus. After cutting the Small Bore Extension tube I also rounded the edges but cutting them also and then fine grit sanded them smooth for this reason.

hope this helps.

The fish are fine but I woke up the entire house with the stench. Lol
Ha haaa! I love the smell of Garlic!

Definitely. But, I would try cleaning them out with the 3% Epsom salt solution first.

See this 3rd page of the thread that Rhickman started... I posted some info and a video administering just the solution...

Hey great info and thanks for sharing. I have one quick question though. Where did you find a tube style syringe small enough for tropheus? I have some that start to waste away and I am going to try this for petros that refuse to eat and also tropheus. Just having a hard time finding a tube that will work. I found these http://www.instechlabs.com/Infusion/...FcIv4AodSlIAbA and I am thinking of buying them because they are small. Think they would work or should I stick with a tube?
