Blue's belly doesnt seem to be getting better. i noticed that one of her small fins is missing and one of her sides is pineconing and actually looks like its shredding. She floats to the top for air and to eat then she floats back to the bottom or around the filter and heater. On the other hand Baby is as healthy as she can be and the 20g the water condition is as good as it was last week. She just seems lonely. So next month ill get 3 more females and put in with her... I just dont know what to do about Blue

:( Whatever Blue has may be too aggressive for the fish meds that are regularly available. I'm sorry to hear she isn't getting better but continue with the treatment all the same and maybe there's still time to turn the tables on this.

Aww. Since the bloating appears to be on one side mostly, it looks like she has a possible severe kidney infection. The kidney on that side may have shut down completely. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do at this stage except continue with the Kanaplex and the epsom salts to keep as much fluid buildup down as possible.

I'm so sorry but you're doing a wonderful job with her. Don't give up hope! I have seen situations like these reverse. Not often but it can happen. :)

Yes. I've done up to 12 or 14 rounds before.

Cool

this is how blue looks after her 6th dose of kanaplex. her side that isnt affected by the kidney failure seems to be discolored....... the side that is bloated seems to be going down and she is still active tho she mostly lays by the filter and heater....

Mm yeah, I'm thinking this might be more Tumor-ish in nature than bacterial. If it were dropsy it'd be generally on both sides, might start out on one side but will eventually go to both sides as the fluid builds up and she wouldn't have lasted this long.

There are no real cures for fish tumors, just making them comfortable with ES until they pass is generally what we do. I'm not sure though, honestly. I'd just keep up with the KanaPlex for now since it can't hurt.

How's Baby doing?
