Re:bloated pinto


Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply. I did discontinue the use of
the diamox as I suspected it was reducing his appetite.
I must admit I am a bit timid about piercing his pouch but if it can potentially save his life, I’ll try. He cannot be pregnant because my sunburst is also a male.
I have another question concerning the sunburst. He had been treated a few months ago with neomycin and triple sulfa for a similar problem, except only the very top of his pouch was bloated. While treating him I noticed a nodule on his tail which dried up after a few days and became a small indent in his tail toward the tip. Since I removed the pinto I’ve noticed that spot on his tail has gotten larger. Would it be okay to place him in the same hospital tank with the pinto? It has been difficult for me to do 50% water changes every day and the thought of doing that twice is overwhelming.
