    Hey OFL,
    Hope everything is going okay. It's been a while since we last chatted, and you were very helpful with Fishy. He is still living somehow, he made a full recovery and about a week ago started getting big on both sides. He still has his color, but he sits on the bottom of the tank now. I am trying salt-water and myacin2, but he is vertical. He is pointing straight up, I don't know how he is doing this... it looks like magic. Ever hear of this before?

    Hey OFL,
    Great news... my Fishy is getting better. Swelling way down, bubble on belly shrinking able to swim on the bottom again, it's a miracle. Going to continue to fast him, and use the maracyn two and epsom salt.

    Hey oFL,
    My betta has developed some kind of tumor that is attached to his belly. Extremely bloated, but still responds to us and has no labored breathing. It looks like a bubble with red stuff in it . Ever see or hear of that?

    If he is floating on his side is it basically over for him?

    I am sorry to keep bothering you, but my fish is floating at the top on his side but is still living. Have you ever tried ampicillin? How do I know if he is suffering? he is not laboring with the breathing, but he is really bloated. he still eats and i put in the epsom salt. He is fighting his butt off to stay alive, so I feel I should do more.. am I getting carried away?

    It can't still be dropsy if he's had it about 3 weeks can it?
