I have seen something like this before. I had a vic that would spit it food out and would not eat. Eventually it died even after meds. When this happen again the second day I pulled the fish out of it's tank and treated it with clout. It was eating again with in 5 days. The fish is still alive today. I know If you treat them to late you can't save them.

I have seen on another forum were they used a UV sterilizer to treated this. They used a UV filter and treated the tank.

Clout is what worked for me. There is really no meds other than a laxative in Epson salt. If you need some clout I have some. You can come by and pick you a couple of pills.
