Gday.

Anyone kicking around the forum with experience with bloat in larger (30cm) Common Pleco’s?

I could do with a hand sorting one out.

Cheers Jim

Hi @Gilbaisland 

 

Not really experienced yet seeing no one has offered any help , i have had issue in the past with diets to high in protein causing some bloating (more constipation) in a pleco I would suggest vegetables (zuchini would be my preference) to see if it helps getting the process moving along Cheers

Cheers Slipshodman.
I was getting a complex...

Your right, too much protein has done it I think.
At present I have stopped all food and have a very low dosage of Epsom Salt in the tank to try and free him up a bit.

What I really wanted to know is whether I should give him repeated Epsom Salt bathes over a number of days or not?
