I really only have the 1 gallon tank that i put my last sick fish in. I might put her back on the bottom shelf, but she's also not got a heater. i want to watch her. Every time I walk over to her she swims up to see me. I feel sad for her :(

Bekah do you know what is causing the dropsy? Because it may be caused by bacterial septicemia and a dose of antibiotics should cure it. But this is coming from a book and it does say that the only way to be 100% on the cause is a post-mortem.

If you've already tried the antibiotic then my book becomes very bleak on the prognosis, that it is probably caused by cancer or parasite.

But the book is fairly old so take what it says lightly as it may be wrong.

Aw Sorry about your fishie!

I just went out with my sister. We had Menchies (candy feast in a cup) and the lady there gave us cardboard van things so I'm going to put hay and treats in mine and give it to bunny. Should get a pic bc the little van is so cute!

Bought Oliver a wet tin of Blue spa food. There's carrots in it?? I'm not buying that again! He likes it but I don't remember reading carrots on the label.

There are several causes according to the book. One is a bacterial infection that causes septicemia and acute dropsy, then there is chronic dropsy caused by terminal problems like cancer of organs or presence of large parasites or liver and kidney damage or peritonitis, then there is malawi bloat which only affect cichlids.

This book has never really steered me or my father wrong but is just a general guide and by no means a replacement for experiance.

SOO at the soup kitchen today there was this guy that kept saying creepy things to me.. and to this other volunteer he was like "hey fat lady! hey fat lady! the big lady come here!" and then he called me the one with "the fine face." SOO we are like creeped out like crazy (and obviously she was pretty hurt). And then the boss talked to him and apparently he has turrets but gah.. :/ Some days I just wonder why I go there.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
