Iím worried my guy has dropsy & I canít find Jungle Anti-Parasite pellets anywhere. Supposedly itís been discontinued?! What can I use as a substitute?
Iíve had a lot to deal with (completely torn ankle ligament, term papers, finals, etc) & I forgot to change the water til this (Sunday) morning. I always change it every Sat, so they had to go 2 weeks without a water change. I completely panicked when I saw him bloated & realized I forgot, so I didnít get water parameters unfortunately, so the ones below are after the water change. Heís acting totally normal & the other guy in his tank is fine, but the bloat just isnít going away. Thankfully, he is definitely not pineconing! I live in a rural area, so Iím pretty sure Iíll have to order it. I want to get it as soon as possible in case itís needed. I'm going to feel awful if he dies, it's all my fault!
