Haha that sound's a bit like my Edmonton adventures as well! I don't have quite an hours drive...about 40 minutes for me. I definitely understand where you're coming from.

Well hopefully the pea treatment will help! Good luck! :)

-sigh- it didn't work what I was worried about happened - dropsy. Despite trying for quite a while, the happy little bugger has dropsy. And he is still active, making nests, asking for food...

So now that makes two who have dropsy. one got slammed by another female, and he just won't pass anything

thanks luimeril and bettafeathers for helping...

I've had to do the pea thing for Keller once, as a last resort. Most I read say it works quickly, but I did not find that to be true. I did half a pea, not a whole though. And it took about 24 hours to work. When it did, his poop looked exactly like the pea lol, just hanging out of him, makes sense because it's undigested. But it did clear him out. I immediately removed his pea-poop with a baster. There will be no re-eating that!

yeah I've had him next to good ol' Red (who's made a 4 inch by 3 inch nest x.x) and Ghengis has been flaring at him now and then. The water is at 78, he's had his pea, I've done epsom salt... :( and no poo. just dropsy.

I know epsom salt won't do anything now, but I'm going to put him on it, along with Maracyn 2 which says it can help with dropsy. I'll be putting him and little Rose divided in the tank.... He's making a nest, active, begging for food and all.... worth a shot to try, isn't it? even if it doesn't work, at least I tried for both of them....
