If any fish is too stubborn to die its him. Heplays dead when he sleeps. Lays on his side not moving at all and wont wake up for anything.

That would scare the daylights out of me. Wow, Noodle, you sure do find the fish with the weird quirks.

Just wanted to say, bless you for giving love to a creature so small and easily over-looked. :)

We're going to do our best. I really hope we can do something for the tough little bugger.

How did you get him out of that store xnoodle? Did you bug them until they finally gave him up? You saved him from certain death, I just hope you got to him soon enough. Good luck and if you need anything just let me know.

Essentially I harassed them enough and slammed them with enough information to finally convince them to do the right thing. I hope we get him soon enough too. But the rest is in his little fishy hands. If any fish is going to fight dropsy it's him.

Good for you! And good luck to him. If he at least gets some time in clean, warm water that must be like heaven.

Alright. He's here with us and we're working on his tank. Bloat is quite bad, so I'm hopeful that the dropsy is just caused by the bloating and parasites and not organ failure yet.

Well, here he is, getting used to clear, tannin'd water before we start treating him tomorrow. His pineconing isn't great, though it's not awful. Super white poop (bad parasites), though he is inhaling food like a monster. I also never really realized how huge he is. He's a giant, veiltail, elephant ear. o.o Everyone, say hello to the huge, grumpy, angry, hungry, and sick Mr Handsome.
