She tried to itch a little but today but nothing else and her breathing is a little harder and yes she has her epsom and im treating her with the fungus clear like callmeconfused did. And thanks you guys I assumed she would go quietly... but her body must be fighting back and i wanted to give her a chance...

That's good you are willing to give her a chance. If she had been in a pet store, she would have been a goner.

Hi Creat, so sorry about your girl. She's a real fighter. If she is still eating you can try Jungle's Anti-Parasite pellets but I don't think there is much else you can do... Maracyn & Maracyn II & medicated pellets have brought back a few for me but they were never this severe :( You would have to discontinue use of the Jungle med to use Maracyn.

Thanks Darkmoon I might have to go buy some more medicated jungle pellets I think mine expired and she seems interested in food but spits it back out. If she is still alive in a few days I will try to switch her over to maracyn 1 and 2. Usually I would have expected her to not survive this far I mean I am actually worried she might explode...

Poor girl. She did look pretty extreme. I'm surprised she made it through the night.

She'll be fine without food for another five at least. Most important thing is to get her size down. She's amazing, this girl. Absolutely amazing.

I know she already has won a special spot in my heart... even if she doesnt make it.. but i really hope she does now. And okay I will keep an eye on her I am still doing water changes daily with 3 tsp/ gal of epsom salt and fungus clear at I think its up to triple the recommended amount as I am searching for better meds.
