I'm checking into some other type of med that is strong enough to help with such an advanced case and also safe for a guppy. Hang in there, I'll be back soon!

Ok, I have some options for you, but please only choose one option! Dose these meds in the quarantine tank only.

option 1. Binox
option 2. Methylene blue and 2 tablespoons of aquarium salt
option 3. Nitrofurazone and 2 tablespoons of aquarium salt

You should be able to find at least one of the above meds at your LFS, Binox has the sodium chloride in it so there is no need to mix that with salt... but the methylene blue or nitrofurizone will need the salt added to work with them. Only add the salt once, follow instructions on the bottle of the med you choose.

I hate to say it, but this infection is pretty advanced, I can only offer you a 50/50 chance that your fish is going to make it. Best of luck to you, let me know if you need more help.

I hate to say it, but it is probably better to just euthenize her at this point. By the time you get the meds and can get her moved she will probably be gone already. I'm very sorry, but things like this happen fast and end fast, unfortunately.
Keep an eye on the other fish in the tank, if any of them shows signs of the same thing, move them out immediately. If it's a fry, the methylene blue and salt are safe enough to use for them.

From what I saw in the picture, no, I don't think she has a chance. I'm sorry, I know that's not what you want to hear, but when you're dealing with something this advanced... even meds offer only a 50/50 chance.
