If he isnt passing what he has with espom salt(which actually aids in digestion) then a pea certainly isnt going to help.

Went to Petco today and they had nothing, nada. They had Maroxy and a couple of antifungals, but that was it.

Hope my guy can hang on to Friday....

Yeah petco doesn't really have meds.. that's the only aquarium supply store in your area? Have you tried yellowpages.com?

There's another one I can try tomorrow. Last time I was there they *did* have one of the Maracyns (don't remember which) but it had long expired.

Went to the other pet store today and got Furan 2. Question- when the other med arrives Friday, should I discontinue the Furan 2, or should I run the whole course as directed anyway? TIA!

If you see no results in a couple days I would maybe actually add Kanaplex to it.. Furan 2 works well with Kanaplex. Or you could try to switch over. I would expect to see some sort of results within 2-4 days if it's going to work at all.

Thanks for the info! I was thinking I might be able to do the two meds together, as they don't have the same ingredients.

Keeping fingers crossed for poor little fishy.... his abdomen is bigger than a marble right now.

I once saw a member on here who's betta fish had a tumor and the stomach looked like that. Maybe that's it? All I can do for you is pray and hope Sakura or a member on here with experience with this stuff sees this thread. I'll be praying for your fish and see if Google has any ideas that help cure him.
