Any triple antibiotics product containing bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin B, store brand or name brand. I don't known what is in A&D so can't make that call

This has been a very informative and interesting thread... thank you Rickey for your great advise on medicating this fish..

Everything has been going great until an hour ago. My baby is now very bloated and swimming upside down at the top of the water. Is there anything I can do for her?

She spent the night in a Tupperware and I woke up to big floaty poop and a right-side up fish.
