I'm so sorry your baby girl is sick! When Elmo was bloated I tried feeding him the pea but daphnia works better I guess. Maybe you can find some frozen at the pet store or dried in the critter section. It's supposed to really help. I think you're doing everything you can for the moment. I was advised to give Elmo either General Cure or the Macryn 2 because he could have a bacterial infection. It turns out it was dropsy even though his scales were fine until the last day when he passed. I don't know the repercussions of giving a fish antibiotics if they don't need them but if she has te daphnia tomorrow and isn't better by Thursday then I would give it a shot. Just my 2 cents.

I hope she gets better.

MikiMaki: That's okay, but finals week? Isn't it a little late for finals? What kind of school are you going to? Just curious, it seems so late in the year for any school to be in session.

I tried giving her brine shrimp to help her go but she refuses it. I'm really worried about her now. Thanks for the tip and thanks for replying.

Meg: Thanks for replying, your good wishes are most welcome. Brine shrimp helps with constipation but she won't eat. I do have some frozen daphnia, maybe she'll eat it because it is smaller than brine shrimp. Thank you for the tip.

Thank you both.

Hi Sakura - I'll give you my two cents, since I thought my little Ruby was eggy when I first purchased her. I was told that when you move a female next to a male, especially if the heat is up to 80 and she's eating high protein, she'll color and egg-up. I was told it only takes a week or so. If she's swimmy or hanging out with her tail up, then that is more of an indication. However, 1fish2fish is a breeder (which you probably already know!) and I'd send a PM. You can get a definite answer on the egging issue and then be able to move on from there. Nothing is worse than just not knowing!

Gia just started acting like this ): She usually eats both her pellets, but today she ate one slowly, and turned down the over one. She also ha a floaty butt, and is staying at the top of her tank. I sure hope someone can help soon.

I really REALLY really dont like this thread :( It sounds exactly like Coraline word for word. Lethargic, then clampy, butt float, "Is it eggyness, is it bloat?" all of it. By day 2 she was in 1tsp of epsom, day three 2tsp of epsom but then she started...seizuring? I have the video somewhere i posted during her battle. I truely hope and pray its not that for you two, its painful to see. :(

I hope so too, Punki. Ugh, now she's passing another eggy thread. It never stops. I am never housing another female next to a male again, not even temporarily.

Electra is fine when housed next to oldman, she gets eggy but she also drops the eggs, Coraline didnt know oldman existed =/ But it does control the eggyness to be away. In the end though just feeding proper meals and having clean water can make a girl eggy so its hard to escape it. >.<

Update pics. This latest one is odd, it's very thick and sticks out like a, well, stick, from her side.
