The blackening you saw is tissue necrosis, which means decay, so its not surprising what you saw.

I'm so sorry about your boy, you both put up a good fight.

And thank you for putting together such detailed notes. If you can PM me with them I will add it to the ongoing post on VIN (Veterinary Information Network) to see if it helps them diagnose this. Dropsy was probably a result of the actual infection shutting down organs...

Yeah, which then I knew he was just going to suffer for what... an hour? 6 hours? 12 hours? 24 hours? Instead of letting it progress and him being in pain (which I am sure with all that it would be painful) I ended it :(

and ok darkmoon I shall

I am going to add the pictures of right after he was put down. This was the progression. Again sorry for the bad quality, it is my ipod camera. and it sucks.

I have never ever seen anything this bad... I mean I have seen what fur coat is, I have seen ich, SBD, minor-severe fin rot, missing scales and torn skin, pop-eye, pineconing, fin biting, minor-severe mouth fungus... But this? This is crazy.
