I think I am going to try what OFL suggested only cause I am finding no good change from any sort of medication... honestly... and I would rather stop medicating her before it does more harm then good

I'm glad to hear she is still fighting! She's really amazing. I still recommend Maracyn II though... The meds you have used are not used for fighting Dropsy so it makes sense that they didn't help her... Bacteria are medication specific and MaracynII is effective against most bacteria that cause kidney infections whereas the other medications you used are for external infections... However, you have used a number of medications so do whatever you feel most comfortable with! Please let us know what natural methods you use.

Keep it up and keep us posted. We are all really pulling for her.

Gram-negative bacteria, isn't it? Just curious, for future reference. This girl is incredible. What an incredible will to survive.

I have her moved her to a simmilar container but this one has about 30+ oak leaves in it and tainted the water dark brown. She still is gettng epsom salt.
I have bad news and good news. Good news is she is still alive bad news is, she isnt swimming any more and laying on her side. She was like this when I returned from my trip, and im trying to see if she will go back to the way she was but so far no improvement. I am worried about her and she hasnt eatten in a week.
Question? Is it alright if I mix the treatment she is on with Maracyn 2?

Oh no! she is laying on her side! *Cries* she has been doing SO good! I don't know if you can mix it treatment though, but I would think that you could mix it because they are both fighting dropsy but DON'T take my word for it because i am not 100% sure. I am also very surprised she is still alive without declcloriator! she is LEGENDARY!

This fish is beyond words. I can't believe she's still alive after having no dechlorinator and being sick on top of it! No wonder she's on her side. :( If by mixing treatments you mean can you use Maracyn II while doing oak leaves and tannins, then yes, I believe so. I think Maracyn II is her best chance now. Good luck Creat and hang in there, little girl, we're all praying and rooting for you.
