I'm really glad the little guy is doing so much better. I love the success stories. You've done a fabulous job with him, Rachelle.
Thanks!

I'll keep him in QT... it says that general cure is safe for use with plants.. but I'm not sure what it would do to the beneficial bacteria in the tank.

I'm so happy that he's gone this far! He looks the same today as he did yesterday as far as scales go... I'll keep him in for a few more doses.

:)

I'm no expert but to me the scales look a lot better. If I had to wager a guess he has parasites causing the dropsy, and the API is fighting off the parasites and thus the dropsy. How's his appetite and energy?

It's about the same. He's had the same appetite as he did a few weeks ago when this mess started.

Let me honest here. Very few betta make it back after pine coning. You are doing fantastic.

Cheering for you and this gives hope to other keepers with fish fighting dropsy.

Yeah! He's upright, he's not zipping around by any means.. but he's active enough! He's still colorful.. no where near where he was in my avatar.. but he's my little fighter :)

I just changed his water/drugs a little while ago.
