This is a discussion on Help please....I'm about to cry! within the Tropical Fish Diseases forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; -->
Sorry about your fish. But you did the right thing putting her out of her misery....
Thanks, I agree. I felt so bad for her! I clean their water often and make sure the parameters are good. I feed them a combo of flakes and frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp. What do you think the cause was? Will it happen to my other fish?
From what I read when my fish had the pineconing, it just means your fish has organ failure. WHY your fish has organ failure could be due to heaps of different things - it could be a bacterial infection, it could be old age.... My fish was the only one who had it, everyone else seems fine. I hope your other fish are ok, too.
Britny, I'm so sorry... definitely dropsy-- and I agree with Jeaninel about you doing the right thing. I've never been able to bring myself to euthanize, even when I know I should-- I always hope against hope that they'll pull through. I'm glad you were able to do that, as hard as it must have been for you.
