I should know better than to ask this... but is there any way to reduce pineconing? Any way at all? Or any way to stop it from getting worse?
Nina has columnaris. Like, really crappy columnaris. I've been treating her with aquarium salt and antibiotics (day 3), but she's really taken a turn for the worse. She's starting to pinecone. Slightly bloated, but not enough to make me think she has dropsy. She's still eating okay, and responsive when someone comes up to her tank.
I know what the cause for pineconing is. And that's what freaks me out the most.
But in an act of desperation I'm asking if there's anything more that I can do for her. I love her dearly, but I'm preparing for the worst. Please, if anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
(I don't think it's right to put her to sleep in her condition right now... if she gets to the point where she's unable to move properly, or something along those lines, I may consider it.)
