Question what in the world?

a couple days ago i was really upset because i looked into ladybugs tank because she had been unusually lethargic, and it looked like she was pineconing. it was fairly noticeable, so i was convinced it was dropsy. i didn't know at the time but her heater had been unplugged, so when i saw that i immediately plugged it back in, and once she warmed up she started eating again and got back to zooming around and being her feisty little self. but also..she's no longer pineconing..her scales are totally smooth again. has anybody else had an issue with this?

I've heard of cases where betta fish recovering on their own from dropsy :O

But yay! I'm happy she's all better :)
