Unhappy Sbd again???

Hey all, I came home tonight to find Karen (New comb tail) on the bottom in a "C" shape. She keeps twitching and cannot stay afloat... could this be dropsy or SBD? After having Vito die and Carmella recover from SBD I am wondering if there is something I am doing wrong.

I just did a complete water change and treated the water. Let's see if she perks up

Now she cannot stay afloat at all. I just had to push her to the top for air and she darted up several times putting her nose completely out of the water, then she just sank back down to the bottom in that "C" shape.

Yeah I guess she must have already been sick... it was downhill since I brought her home. I did everything I knew to do. She was really big. Almost twice the size of my other girls, so I wonder if Walmart had her in a warehouse somewhere and she was older than I thought. Whatever the case, it sucks losing a pet, but I am glad she is not suffering anymore. It was killing me to see her like she has been the past couple days.
