Bloated barb recovered!

Hi!

My fat Sumatra tiger barb who had been placed in a quarantine tank went home today! He had spent a whole week in solitary confinement.

I was happy to observe his/her bright colors return and his scales not up anymore! He started eating and the wound on his side is gone (it was from fish bites).

Can a barb really recover from dropsy? Or maybe my fish didn't have it?

Recovering form dropsy is very rare, but can happen (so I have heard).

Either way, I'm glad that he is better. :)

Thank you!

Maybe he just needed to lose some weight? But his scaled had been raised before quite significantly!
