Aww...man wishing u lots of luck with ur betta.....a few side note.....for 2.5 gallon tanks atleast 1~100% water changes is needed per week and at least another 50%...once a week...prolly an antibiotic would be more helpfull than the other med u stated...also the other objects that arnt maid for fish tanks can have other products in them that can make fish sick...and alter the ph in the water...checking the ph is a good plan too...

Thanks. I will have to see what my Petsmart has for treating dropsy. She is still hanging on.

So I bought some medication. Not exactly what I wanted but I will give this a try. I have also been doing the epsom salt water changes. She is still bloated and pinecone like, but seemed to try and swim around a little more.

Guess poor Poly was too far gone in the disease to be helped. I thought she was looking better, but it must have been one last burst of energy before she died. That is the first of my bettas to ever get dropsy, but now I know the early signs and can treat one of my others if it happens again. Thanks everyone for all your input.

Awww, sorry for your loss, Donna :(
At least now you know what to look for. Dropsy is a total pain in the butt.
As long as you change your water more frequently, I think you'll be fine. Just make sure you sanitize all of the tank stuff.

I agree! Like your signature says, at least you rescued her and gave her a good home to live the rest of her days in :)
