Found out it is a she. She seems a little better, but no feces yet.

Well I would say wait, but if it keeps her from living a normal life and she can only stay at the surface and struggles to swim yes euthanize is what I think. It is ultimately your call and you will always make the last decision. Oh and btw I know she wasn't a dwarf, I was just wondering what is the proper size for a dwarf gourami because I like them. Do you know the proper size tank? I really hope she gets better!

I have mine in a 30 gallon. So that should be a good size! My "disabled" one is in a 10 gallon filled half way

ok so I have an update! she finally pooped for the first time since I have owned her (About 2 to 3 days) and she is less swollen, but still having some bladder issures. Her swimming seems to take less effort now! I still have her fasting so I can empty her intestines. This is day 2 of fasting. I felt bad and fed her for a few days

it will depend. I'm still figuring that out. I don't think she will ever be 100% I have her in a ten gallon now, but in my 30 gallon, that gourmi was really beating her up. And I don't want that. She may stay in the ten gallon, I'll just buy decorative items, but I don't know yet
