So his dropsy'd scales have almost completely gone back down, his appetite is huge again, and he's flitting about in his tank. Still having some swimming issues which is either, I figure, SBD still or just old age. xD "Handsome Jack" as he's come to be known is really a stubborn old git. And it looks like he might just pull through.

By your command.

Look at that big cranky bugger. It's like he gave dropsy the finger.

I'm glad he beat dropsy.

No he's a veiltail. He just is very camerashy. He won't let me take pictures from the side yet, as he's still getting used to me. I figure he'll be okay with it soon though. And yeah he's shimmery as hell. His fins are even starting to unclamp, and they've been clamped for like, a year.

Hope he makes it!

I'm so glad you took him in. :)

Perhaps you could start a journal for his recovery?

Wow, the little bugger looks fantastic! Looking at him, one would not guess the conditions he'd been in before you got him, Noodle. Way to go with him!

Thanks Sakura! Little bugger is even surfing when he sees me. His raised scales are literally no more.
