Default Moba float question

Hey there,



I have a 10 year old Moba who unfortunately has a nasty case of float. He's been quarantined for a week now, I've been treating with epsom salt. While he isn't getting any worse, he also doesn't appear to be getting any better, and will not take food at this point (I tried to give him some peas).



My question is: How long is too long to keep this poor guy floating in quarantine? He still has all of his color, and is responsive, but aside from that has shown no improvement. At this point I can't think of anything else to do besides keep doing what I've been doing, or euthanize


Any help is appreciated.

How big is the quarantine tank and how much Epsom are you putting in the tank?

50g, half cup of epsom and changing about 25% of the water every other day. Also have used some seachem stress guard.

I've had success with 1 cup per 50 gallon and only filter pad in filters

Whether you add half cup or 1 cup, it has to be added everyday, water change or not
