He started having symptoms of dropsy about 3 weeks ago, and still has that pine cone look. He hasn't eaten in weeks, and doesn't swim around much at all anymore. He just floats in one spot near the surface of the water, every once in a while, blowing a bubble, or breathing, occasionally moving a little. He seems to move less and less every day, although if I try to catch him, he darts away pretty quickly. I hate to see him like this and have put off euthanizing him because I was hopeful that he'd get better. I treated him twice (2 courses) w/ Maracyn and Maracyn II and epsom salts, but currently just have him in plain water w/conditioner. I almost get up every morning expecting to find him dead, but he's not. I just hate to think he's suffering a lot.
I appreciate everyone's advice in the past. Suggestions?
