Like I said, know your fish. If you think she has a chance of responding to meds don't euthanize.

Its only been one day on the new meds. I will give her a few days to see. Who knows maybe she'll magically recover. But if not, I now have the tools to help her so thank you Matt.

horribly. she can barely keep herself straight.tomorrow will be day 3 of the tetracycline and she is doing worse. her pineconing is more pronounced. she will only eat 2 pellets. she just lays on a leaf at the top of the tank with her nose sticking to the surface. she barely moves. if she isn't using something to steady herself, she goes vertical. its really sad to see.

That's to bad. Have you decided if/when you are going to euthanize her?

At this point I am going to say she has little chance of recovery.

i've had her since she was 12 weeks. she had such big personality before she got sick. I feel so nauseous thinking that she is probably going to die. She is a fish but GOD i love her. My 3 year old daughter possibly loves her more. i HATE THIS

if there is no improvement tomorrow, then yes I will euthanize her.

I know how you feel. Dropsy is an awful thing.

i wish i knew what had caused it. I really have no idea. she is in a cycled, heated to 80 degrees 5.5 gallon tank. there is nothing sharp she can hurt herself on. it is full of silk plants with large leaves for her to explore. none of the decor has metal that could rust. i do 50% water changes twice a week. i feed her NLS and Omega one. i don't even know how this could have been prevented
