Well, I've been out for most of the day and I came home to discover Taco making an attempt to blow a ring of bubbles lining his tank. He's still hanging vertical and very swollen. I am absolutely baffled.

Any thoughts on this??

That happened to my last female who had dropsy. Have you tried antibiotics like Ampicillin?

Taco sounds like a tough fighter. I think you should try Ampicillin. It may work.

Oh no,dropsy. My poor Morado lived with that from the beginning. He held on a long time. For some reason some of them do hang on for quite awhile. Just keep him comfy is all I can offer.

Hmm. I'm at a bit of a crossroads here. I don't have the means to acquire Ampicillin and I leave to go back to the Almighty Land of College in 6 days. I can't take a sick fish with me.

What to do?? :(
