This isn't really a question, but one of my newest three girls, Okami, has dropsy. A couple days ago, while I was at school, the power went out. When I got home the water was still warming up but was only at 77 degrees when it's usually at 79, and Okami was acting funny.
Yesterday, her scales on her face only were raised and I could not figure out why, but today, all of her scales are raised. I am preparing for the worst but still hoping that maybe I can help her.
I've got her in epsom salts now and am going to add general cure and also try feeding her general cure in case the dropsy was caused by internal parasites. I have Kanaplex and pure metro coming on Wednesday, but I don't know if she will make it :(
She is my favorite of my three girls and I feel so bad and I probably could have prevented it. I was thinking about a back up generator a while back, but I never looked too far into it because they are pretty expensive, but now I wish I had. Her life would have been worth it.
She's still breathing, but is very lethargic and I think she may be about ready to go. She was still fighting last night and this morning but her efforts are fading. I'm hoping she'll survive by some miracle, but I'm not getting my hopes TOO high.
It's been like 10 years since I lost a fish. I've only had her since 1/11/13 but I will reallyy miss her if she doesn't make it :(
