Oh no!! She looks terrible, I am sorry that she is ill... :( :( Is that dropsy? I'm a noob to most fish illnesses, but that definitely reminds me of dropsy...

OFL suggests using 1 tsp of epsom salt per gallon in a quarantine tank for dropsy...I forgot the rest of her instructions, but epsom salt is hopefully supposed to help dropsy. It's not a guarantee if her organs are shutting down, but if it's a bacterial infection she MIGHT come around. Give OldFishLady a PM

Hi guys thanks i should have given a better description.
I added rock salt to her water and i stopped feeding her six days ago and only just fed her today so most of the bloating has gone down.

I think its from the Misos shrimp cos i read that similar things happen when fed on blood worms and that its the liver shutting down.

But she is still very active and still very hungry i think that's her problem she eats too much lol so i will be feeding her only every third day and im doing regular water changes so far there has been an improvement but im hoping she makes it even though she never stops stressing(since i got her)
