:( If he doesn't feel well still, he'll probably be paler. Can't remember if I mentioned it but you may want to keep him in 1 tsp of epsom salts per gallon to be on the safe side. If you have any Indian Almond leaf or decaffeinated pure green tea, you can add that as a source of tannins as well.
He's still alive this morning! He has 1tsp/gallon of epson salt in his tank right now. He had 3tsp/gallon in his QT tank..
He's not as pale and I Can see red in his fins now but he's very listless and is just sort of floating at the top... but he's still alive!
It's not all over his body, not that I can see easily.. it seems to be worse by his belly which is big even though I havent been able to get him to eat for a few days now.
Should I take him out and treat again?
EDIT: He looks really bad.... he moved and I can see him from a different angle.. he looks as bad now as he did when he was at his worst in his treatment tank. :( I don't know what else I can do for him... could it be something in his tank making him sick?
:( This is what I was really afraid of. The symptoms that cause dropsy can be really resistant. To be honest, it's probably not going to help at this point because the symptoms (and thus the disease causing them) have returned, but yes, if you want to you can take him out and put him back in Kanaplex AND General Cure.
I think he may have a possible hexamita infestation, an internal parasite that can also cause dropsy symptoms. If so, they can be pretty hard buggers to clear out. The metronidazole in General Cure will tackle them and the Kanaplex will tackle the resulting secondary bacterial infection.
Oh, Mr. Squiggles. :( I'm so sorry, Rachelle. You've really done everything you possibly could for the little guy and I'm so sorry the symptoms have returned.
