Not a lot of change. She is still trying to eat, but she noms it then spits it out and watches it sink. She finally pooped today, though it was the clear-ish parasite-ish poop. Still pineconing bad, still not very social. She spends most of her time sitting on the gravel or floating looking up at the surface. She's still swimming kinda odd too. Really flitting her tail fin around, which she never did before. Today is water change day, though. She's hanging in there longer than a lot of fish that have dropsy, so I'm trying to keep hope she'll bounce back.

Yeah... No improvement on the wretched dropsy though. What a bloody horrible illness...

No improvement at all, even after 2 doses of kanaplex and sitting at the "magic 4" day. That puts her at 6 days with dropsy.

We did the right thing and put Cass to sleep this morning... It was honestly one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life... I'm going to close this thread, if possible, now... Her suffering and struggling is finally over and she can surf the glass on the other side of things... If you would like to pay your respects, I have made a thread here:

Thank you all for your love and support. Especially Sakura for her wonderful, kind words and suggestions through this horrible time, and for Rachel giving all of her support when her fish is going through a similar illness. I really hope your little one makes it, hon!
