Thank you for these further insights, they may provide the difference for little floyd. I will certainly be off to the vet you have recommended if this situation gets worse. I'll also attempt to be more detailed with explanations.
It seemed to me his digestion was producing to much gas thus the bloat, so I gently held him and applying slight pressure ran my hand slowly from his middle to his tail. The first pass would make him flatuant, also expelling some yellowish urine(?).
I have been keeping him at about 28 C, but from your advice I will hence spend more attention to keeping him at the temperatures you have suggested. I will use the mineral oil as recommended if morning brings no improvement, then call the vet.
Your quick responses have been awesome.
