Thanks, y'all. Every little bit helps.

I just had a thought: I changed Taco's water yesterday, never varying from my usual routine. This includes using aquarium salt.

I just read up a bit on Fish Dropsy. It would seem that it's the failure of the kidneys, which leads to a buildup of fluid in the body. Given that salt, in humans, leads to a buildup of water retention, could the same be true for fish? I mean it sounds silly, since fish live in water, but it was a thought I had.

Taco hasn't changed at all. Given Taco's symptoms and behavior, it definitely looks like dropsy.

More updates to follow later this evening.

I put Taco in a smaller container, where he won't have to swim too far for air at the moment. He looks completely miserable. I'm changing out the water in his tank and only filling it halfway. If he goes, I just want to make him as comfortable as I can.

I'm giving a half-water change to Tian-Tian at the same time. Tian-Tian has been very active over the past few hours. I bet he knows something's up.

More updates coming.
