No one else seems effected yet... For all I know they could all have it and it could just be incubating since whatever this is only shows symptoms for two days.

Sounds extremely nasty whatever it is. I was so dispirited when velvet went through all my tanks and I lost/had to cull several fish.

I hope for your sake, your spawn is okay.

I just went to pick up clove oil but I will wait until I can guarantee that it is dropsy.

I'm sorry to hear about your fish, Matt. It is very disheartening how this can happen to the people who do all the right things.

Thanks feng. I agree, it kind of annoys me how someone can keep a betta in an unheated vase with a water change once every two weeks alive for seven years but no matter how hard I try to keep them happy THIS happens.

Whatcha going to do, I guess.

There's really no justice in it. At all.

I hope the rest of your guys and/or gals pull through.

Well, I thought I would share a few updates...

Jackson's dropsy has been progressing slowly throughout the evening. Pineconing is just beginning. Kanaplex quickly took care of the fuzzy spots and has dramatically slowed down his fin rot. Regardless, because of his internal issues, I am 99% sure I will have to put him down tomorrow for his sake.

My fry... Well, since I've been so caught up in this disease and absolutely obsessive about spreading it, I have not done a water change in four days. Growth is slow but they are fine.

I'm ridiculously worried and depressed at the thought of losing all of my fish to this disease. If that happens, I will probably not buy from a petstore again and start fresh with aquabid fish. I would have to toss pretty much everything but the glass tanks, and even those will have to be sanitized with harsh chemicals. AND, if that's not enough, the 33g npt sorority would have to be put off because of everything that would need replacing.

Lets hope that doesn't happen.

Hat is so sad :(
I hope worse doesn't come to worse and you need to buy all new fish... That would be horrible. Feel so sorry for you...
