When my fish was having problems related to its swim bladder I was advised to use Epsom salt rather than aquarium salt. It seems my fish had become very constipated, which could have been pressing on the swim bladder somehow.  After a few days in the Epsom salt, wow, he let it all out, and was fine.  Wait for a moderator or helper to come by and post.  Shouldnt be long.  They are very helpful.

Hi there! Could you please provide video of your fish's behavior? The way to do this on this forum is to upload the video to youtube and then post the link here. 

 

I would not perform any more treatments until the moderators have had a chance to evaluate the thread. I hope your fish gets better, and welcome to Koko's!

When you fasted, how long did you fast him? 

 

The video is kind of dark . . . is it taken from above?  Can you take one from the side of the tank and make it about 30 seconds long?  Is the filter current pushing him around at all?

My Black moor has actually passed away. SO help is no longer needed, but thank you for the reply. In the future I will remember to post the stats for my main tank as well.

Thanks.  Ideally, we would request that in the form, but people find it rather long as is.

I‘m really sorry for your loss. I know it‘s really hard to lose a fish from SBD. Please don't beat yourself over it and be willing to gather knowledge from the wonderfull members here.

Best wishes for next time!!!!
