I'm really hoping I've caught it. Will definitely have Kanaplex for the next time, thanks to Matt and BB123.

The thing about dropsy is that it's reoccuring. Most people have more success treating it the first time that the second :/

I hope they do make it, but if your girl does, I would (personally) consider getting her her own tank, because it usually comes back in a few months and hits harder than the first time.

I was thinking that as well. I know that if you manage to beat the dropsy initially the fish will be weak and suceptaboe to illness for the rest of its life, aka would not do well in a sorority. Great info Ayala. I need to get that kanaplex just in case!

Well, that was my plan with Okami because of course, I was hoping she would pull through. I had her, Stella and Lotus and was planning on getting 3 more from Chard56 but when she pineconed, I was going to put her in my back up four gallon tank instead, but she never got to see the four gallon :(

So I got 4 Chard girls instead and named one after her. Two of them are red dragons like her.

Seiya might get passed it, but I think Amaterasu's getting worse. It almost looks like her gill is popped out, and it looks like a piece of flesh, or more likely a parasite, is hanging off of it as she breathes. She's pined more now.



You can see where it looks fleshy...it wasnt like that earlier.

I want to think she'll get better, but fish gills are NOT supposed to have weird strands of anything waving around when they breathe. I dont like it, but depending on how she is by the end of the week I'll have to put her under...I really want to give her the chance to get better...but I think I was too late again. And I don't want her suffering until it finally takes her. But I'll wait and see.

I'm giving her the chance. I'll watch her close. It's heartbreaking though, knowing what she's going to have to fight through, and she still looks up at me with that same curious little face she had when I opened the box and saw her...and I'm going to have to watch Seiya go through this too. Two of my favourites, Seiya my most handsome little punk...

Thanks for the prayers, guys. I really hope..she can make it. Both of them.
