Unhappy *Sigh*......

Well..... It looks like Rune has dropsy... His scales are raised a little, he isn't eating, and not active at all. :( I put him in his cup and I have the cup floating, so that he stays warm, but doesn't infect the whole tank. I just can't belive that one of MY fish has dropsy. I guess all I can do is keep him warm and comfy?

I'm so sorry about Rune!! Are you sure it's dropsy? Just keep an eye on him for a couple days to be sure. If it IS dropsy then yeah, there is nothing you can do except make him as warm and comfy as possible. :(

I'm pretty sure. His scales are raised and his eyes are really bulgy. :(

OK, Rune ATE a bloodworm!!!! I was so happy! :) I added salt to his cup, and he seems to have perked up a little bit. His scales are still raised a little, and he has clamped fins. I've also put some dark fabric around his tank so he isn't stressed. I'm going to do everything I can!! I think I caught it pretty early...

Maracyn2, Jungle Fungus Clear and Jungle Fungus Eliminator can be used to treat dropsy, although we know that dropsy can't be cured.

Sweet!! I think a pet store near me has JFE. I will look. I should really stock up on meds.... I need some of that stuff for Oliver's slight fin rot anyway. I think my mom will take me, because she loves Rune. :)
