Picasso, thank you so much for your reply. They ARE both very small, especially Clementine ... but at least where Bettina is concerned, she is so vigorous, and full of personality and life. She really is adorable. Clementine is, also, but it just breaks my heart to see her so ... well, I don't know what. I really do believe she is ill, but nothing I'm doing seems to be working, and I've been trying to get in touch with a fish vet for the last couple of days - started trying over the weekend, no luck, so yesterday I filled out the new patient form on their website and sent that in, and I keep trying the phone # but no one ever answers. From the website it looks like they travel to people's houses which would make sense since fish are not that easy to take to the vet, but it's really upsetting and frustrating to me that no one will call me back. I just don't want her to be suffering, and my gut is telling me that she is. If something can be done to help her, I want to do it, but if not then I want someone to help her go. Meanwhile, if anyone has any idea of anything else I can do to help her, I am open to any suggestions. Here's what I've done so far:
She's in a hospital tank (1 gallon but filled up only halfway so that she can get to the bottom for food and to the top for air. I'm on Day 3 of Kanaplex treatment. Temp is at 82 degrees and steady. Ammonia and nitrites are at 0 ppm. (Using Prime water conditioner.) I've been soaking the food in Seachem Garlic Guard (for her frozen food) and I did try blowing the pellets across the surface last night, but no luck with that. I honestly think maybe she isn't blind but ill.
Is there anything I'm not doing that I could do while I wait for these stupid vets to call me back?
