I really cant tell from the photo, if the scales are lifting up or not. Is she turning black underneath?

No she isn't turning black underneath. She is also having difficulties swimming around, not as fast as before. That picture was taken yesterday...today she is even rounder.

It is important to let us know if the scales (fishes skin) is lifting up! We are checking for signs of Dropsy. I have had experience with this disease in comet goldfish, fantail goldfish, and swordtails. I have only been able to twice successfully heal the fish.

Is it starting to swim sideways? (checking for swim bladder issues). I have experience with this too, and successfully taken care of it three times within my aquariums.

Both issues are considered fatal in a lot of cases.
