Extreme Case of Dropsy!!! Please help out of ideas
One of my girls got dropsy a about 4 days ago and she is seriously bloated like huge I have never seen a fish swell like this. and I haven't seen a fish last this long looking like that. Right now her water is getting changed everyday and she is getting 3tsp /gallon of epsom salt she is also heated right now? What else can I do I mean she s acting like a fighter....
photo a few days ago she has ballooned beyond this
I had 1 with dropsy that survived. Everyone told me to treat her for parasites, but it took 2 weeks to get parasite medication, so I used what I had. Jungle Fungus Clear (at 3x the recomended dose) and epsom salt with 100% daily water changes with more meds. After about a week, the bloating started going down, and then her color started coming back.
This is what she looked like when I started treating her
Antibiotics help, preferably doc prescribed but I have honestly never seen anything smaller then a 5 inch fantail goldie get baytril injections. Antibiotic pellets to treat the infection inside, but she is really really bloated, and that's usually a sign that the kidneys are really far gone. I'm sorry.
Oh I know I have never seen a fish look like this and still swim around like normal, she isnt hiding or gasping she is just... there... I have no clue what is wrong and just want to make her comfterable if she is going to pass...
