Please give me some advice on the butterflyfish ASAP, it was fine yesterday but is on its side now and swims every now and agian, i think it might be swim bladder disease. The water temperature did drop by about 2-3° and thats it! The other butterflyfish are fine so i know its not a parasite or anything like that. Possible treatment advice would be greatly appreciated

The species is a Threadfin butterflyfish, it js in a hospital tank for the time being with the temperature being raised slowly to what it was this morning. Should i use Epsom salts like the internet suggests i should?

Epsom salt i think is used for constipation issues. Not swim bladder. I might be wrong
