Has anyone else had bad luck with the giants from Walmart. My sister has bought a total of 4 and so far 3 have had or are going through dropsy. The first female we bought because she looked healthy, but she soon developed dropsy and passed away because she jumped out of her tank.
Now we have a green copper and a blue marble that both have dropsy. One is already pineconing pretty bad and the other one is just bloating for no reason. They're both on treatment and we hope they survive.
Are giants genetically predisposed to bacterial infections or something? We've only ever had dropsy with giants and they've all been from walmart since our Petsmart doesn't sell them.
I know Walmart conditions are generally terrible, but is it something other than poor care since the two females who have dropsy were only there less than a week?
