    hey Vamps,
    Fishy has made a full recovery, and looks beautiful once again. Thanks for all of your advice during that tough time I was having. You were right Fishy is a miracle. Take care

    I just added a pic of Fishy so you can see what I mean about the bubble. Still blown up and pineconing also. He was swimming around a little more tonight after we changed the water, put in epsom salt, and stress coat. I did put some maracyn two in as well...just trying everything.

    Just stop feeding him. They can go on for awhile without food so it's fine for a few days. Keep his water clean, and add the same meds you did when he had dropsy and he should get better....this fish is like a betta miracle!!

    Hey Vamps,
    How have you been? Here's the lateset... Fishy has puffy eye ( same eye he had popeye in ) , is very bloated underneath, and formed a bubble underneath his body. He floats on his side at the top of the tank, but he still eats and is responsive. I was told he might have swim bladder disorder, he somehow is still living so what would you recommend for the ( bubble ) attached to his body and the swim bladder disorder?

    How have you been Vamps? Fishy is still living somehow, but he floats on his side at the top. He is very bloated and nothing seems to work? I feel like he wants me to keep trying to help him, but i am out of ideas.. Would you keep him alive, or is he suffering?

    My fish is still living, and I don't know how. He is still bloated underneath and around the head, the maracyn two and aquarium salt do not take the swelling down.... any other suggestions.. He floats at the top all of the time, and occasionally eats flakes.
