but for future refrence, if you notice dropsy, try that.
im sorry you had to euthanize your fish. if the eyes were liek that, then yeha...there was prolly no way to help it. the poor thing =(
Dropsy signals a problem with the kidneys and very hard to cure, especially with bettas cuz they're soooo delicate. It's one of those things that you can go ahead and try to help it but you should know that the odds aren't good, and it sounds like the poor girl had no odds having been put with that male.
OP....I'm really sorry about your betta. Was it a friend that told you the eggs were rotting inside her or a petstore employee?
