Uh oh. If I were you I might just stop treatment and keep him comfortable...

It is all I can do now. Fresh water little antibiotic, just letting him go one gasp at a time. :(

This is so sad. :( I also had one betta, called Sharky, who died of dropsy on December 27. :( It happened exactly the way it happened to you, very slowly and sad. I personally hope that in the future an effective antibiotic would be found for this terrible disease.

Me too he died last night like I feared.
I'm going to look for a new one to fill the hole before I go to work today.
I'll take him into work with me if I don't pick out a new one quickly enough its only a 3 hour shift.

Hi, I was wondering if you could give us a follow up post on your fish... Did he survive? If not, I'm so sorry. My betta Frank is looking just like Shark did in those pics. I have tried everything and he hasn't changed. It's just so hard to see him like that and just wait for... well, to just wait. It makes me cry every day.

Oops, sorry, I didn't see your last posts... I was only on page 1 of this thread. I'm still getting used to navigating this site. I'm so sorry about Shark. I'm afraid that might be the fate for poor Frank too... I haven't tried antibiotics because I've heard they don't do much at this stage. Dropsy just works so slowly... it's torture to watch.

Make sure before you buy a new fish you completely clean out your tank in-case of bacteria that could cause trouble to any new fish you buy :)
