I've heard that brine shrimp can help.Freeze dried food needs to be rehydrated, though. I'm sure you know that already. :)

Normally I feed it to them on Wednesday, but I'll give it to them tomorrow instead and see if it helps. I'm still fasting all of them today.
Thanks for the adivce Dramaqueen and Grant83. :)

Yeah my girls didn't bloat even though I didn't soak their food, so I thought they would be okay. But now I'll do it as a precaution, you should too. :)

I never did either, until several people here advised me to.

He's not looking so hot...

I put him in a cup right now so I could wash out his net and get a better look at him.
He's still bloated, his colour's faded (with stress stripes), and his eyes are a little weird. They're clouded over, though it looks lie he can still see.

Sorry to double post, but I'm starting to think he might have dropsy... :/

His eyes are popping out compared to my girls and they're cloudy. But his scales aren't raised. What do you think?
