Female Danio tilting when swimming

Here's a small update about Lorraine. She hasn't changed towards any better. She still rather seems to be getting worse. Is it possible that there is for example a bacterial infection that needs treating before she can get better?

Thank you.

Another update. I have noticed that Lorraine is swelling a little on her right side. Just behind the mid-section on the side, not lower down. I'm wondering what is causing that. I've seen more swelling on other fish in the past, but it's still some swelling and of course taken the fish's small size, it ends up being quite a bit.

I'm still not wanting to make any quick decisions about her, because as much as she lays down on her side most of the time. I'm still hoping that she would get better. When she swims she's now leaning to the left. I swear it was the right before, but now it's the left. She swims very little, but changes her location from time to time. She lays pretty much only on her left side, but this could be because she tilts to the left when swimming and so it's easier to lay onto that side.

Thank you!

Hi,

Lorraine is still the same. No change. She seems like she'd like to swim, but when she does, she tilts 45 degrees to the left and can't stay upright. Then she very quickly goes back on the bottom of the tank and lays on her left side. She doesn't try swimming very often.

I'm almost thinking that maybe there could be something else wrong (judging by the swelling on her right side and also the way she swims 45 degrees on her side) as well as the protozoa. She does not eat. Should I continue with the same treatment or should something else be done?

Thank you.

Hi,

Unfortunately Lorraine was not getting better regardless of the medication. We did everything we could, but she must have had internal damage bad enough that she started having some sort of attacks or seizures so we had to put her down. She slept away peacefully.

Thank you for all your help!!!
