How's she doing? I should add that I am not a fan of antibiotics (I do not like the overuse of them more than anything), and that is why I usually hold off on them. I also, don't feel like I can recommend them without seeing a picture. What one person describes as Dropsy may just be bloating.

She still looks the same. I didn't put the Kanaplex in until last night so I will dose again tonight. And her water is at 3tsp/gal of epsom salt.
She's definitely not bloated from eating too much. It's her entire body that got really fat and all of her scales are pineconed.

If anyone wants an update, she seems to be getting worse. Her water has 3 tsp./gallon of epsom salt and I've been dosing with Kanaplex for 3 days. She's still just as bloated, her scales are still pineconed, but now she's not eating and her color is all faded and she's clamping her fins. waaah I feel so bad for her. She must feel awful.
