This little girl has reached epic status in my mind. I'm rooting for her and my own little Cameo (who has just begun to pinecone). You're care for your little girl is inspiring to me when I'm headed into a similar situation. Much love and hope from my fishies, hubby and myself!

I can't believe she survived chlorinated water too! She probably isn't swimming due to that though, not the infection... It sounds like chlorine poisoning... I wouldn't give her MaracynII unless she is at least able to keep herself upright again. She might be too weak to handle it right now. Fish usually recover from chlorine poisoning soon after being put back in chlorinated water. You might want to hold off on meds until she is at least a bit more active. Give her at least a day or two to recover with the oak leaves and clean dechlorinated water.

I'm sorry guys but she didnt make it I found her dead when I came home from work today, i think it was the chlorine that got her... makes me feel bad that that was the one thing that was such an easy fix I even drove 30 min out to get maracyn 2... oh well she will always have a special place in my heart... I will bury her next to hopeless

So sorry for your loss Creat. She was an amazonian fighter at heart and will always be remembered in the hearts of those of us in this forum as well. <333

I'm so sorry Creat, the two of you put up an epic, epic fight. We'll always remember both of you in forum history. People will say, "Remember that little betta who had dropsy forever and lived for so long? She got such good care."

It's sad, though, I think we'll always wonder, "What if she hadn't had to deal with that chlorine, would she have made it?"

Everytime I opened this thread, I would think please be ok, and that girl would still be fighting.. I felt such a shock when I read that she died.. That girl is going down in betta history for sure! Rest in peace little champ. :)

Creat, it was a silly mistake but not one you did so don't blame yourself. You were probably the only reason she lived so long and was so comfortable too. You did an awesome job with her.

D: oh, noes! i'm so late finding this out. i'm so sorry she didn't make it. she's truly a fighter, though. she's reached such amazing status with everyone here, i think she's touched everyone's heart, and gave everyone hope that their own ill baby can make it through anything. RIP, beautiful girl. you're gonna be missed by dozens.
