Yes its tough with dropsy. I wish I had euthanized my Binky earlier instead of trying in vain to save her for 10 days and have her suffer the way she did. I hope I learned something from that rotten experience.

Sad thing is I have no idea what has caused her condition. Whatever it is, I'll have everything cleaned extremely well to avoid transferring.

I'm sorry about your Lucille. She had such an interesting colour. But sometimes things just happen. I'm sure it will get better.

Thanks - I kind of am shocked at the selection for female bettas nowadays. All dying, dead, or sick.

I think it had to do with how pet stores treat them. The females at my Petsmart only cost $2.99, but they aren't bought nearly as frequently as the colourful males which they charge a lot more for. $7.99 for any males except the dragonscales which are $14.99. The males having clean water and are for the most part, alert and disease free. The females? Letharigic and clammed fins.

From the business pov, it would be a waste to put effort into taking care of animals that don't really bring in as much of a profit. Awful, but true.
