Not to sound pessimistic but perhaps you should consider euthanasia, and just end her suffering if this goes on any longer... I've successfully tried the ice water method on other fish (not bettas) and they died on contact without so much as a twitch.
Poor girl..... at this point it's probably best to decide if it's best to try to keep her going or end the suffering..... I still wish you the best and I hope she gets better, but if it seems like she's not going to make it or is suffering way too much, here's a link explaining different ways to euthanize your fish..... http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...sia-73775.html
I am so sorry, and I still wish you and your fish the best!!
hmm... i just checked on her again... looks as if it was soft enough for her to push it down, the lump is gone, and she isn't hanging around at the top anymore, also she seems less tipsy, she's thrown off a tad, but she's doing well. i also cant see the pellet anymore. however i think she's going to have a bit of a hard time disposing of that monster. looks like she'll make it, ill give her another 24 hours. luckily i have no school tomorrow, so i can keep an eye on her. lesson learned here... don't feed a small fish big pellets... anyway, ill keep you guys posted... once she looks better this case can then be proclaimed closed.
Oh my, that had to be so scary for you and her! I am so happy to hear that she is making somewhat of an improvement. Looking forward to some, hopefully, good news! *crosses fingers, toes, anything else I can without falling out of the chair*
she's doing fine now and swimming happily in her tank. she's more skiddish towards fingers than ever though, which i dont blame her for. in a few hours ill feed her a small portion of a pea to help her digest that monstrosity. i mainly feed her blood worms anyway due to the fact that she would become bloated when being feed the microsized pellets even when i soaked them. anyway, thank you for those who have gave advice, and to those who have wished her well, your wishing worked! =D lol. this case can now be proclaimed closed.
