He was perfectly healthy and happy fish eating and such well. Now sits in the corner of his tank barely moving. I have followed so many different types of advice and have done so much I'm going insane because I don't know what more to do.
Epsom salts added to food. Done tummy is working well. If he eats.
No white poop good solid looking normal poop.
Have given him a treatment of antibiotics although I don't know what they were called local fish shop prescribed after seeing the fish. Water tests qere done by local fish shop and they are happy with all water parameters.

4foot tank. 243 litres of water. Filtration baffle system with sponge and bio balls. 2 x weekly water changes currently about 30% he definitely livens up after a water change but by the next day he's back in his corner. I am currently treating him with Paraguard. As per the bottle instructions.

I'm not sure if it's the same case but I had a fish that acted like that and the cause of it was internal parasites. Keep up the water changes and hope your fish pulls through. Whats the temperature on?

30 degrees. Which is what my pet shop advised. So keeping as hot as possible and feeding now with an antibiotic soaked pellets.
