Is she pineconing? Are her scales sticking out like a pinecone?


yourethatoneemokid

ive looked at her closer and yeah it does like it. is there a way to stop it?


SammyKae664

Honestly not really, puneconing is a late symptom of dropsy- it’s technically a symptom of either organ failure causing the abdomen to fill with fluid or a nasty bacterial infection. You could try fish amoxicillin for the longest time on the bottle then a week long treatment of aquarium salt. Honestly it is unlikely that she will recover from this because of how advanced she is, I strongly suggest looking into humane euthanasia with clove oil, even if you try treatment you may still need it.

aw dang that really sucks to hear. but thank you for the advice! do you mind telling me how to use those methods? I've been reading about them but I keep getting confused

You need to order fish amoxicillin on chewy- on the bottle itll tell you to use it for like 5-7 day, you do the 7 day treatment then do a very large water change. You then treat with aquarium salt for 7 days per the directions on the bottle.

Don't blame yourself for this. You've only had her a week and she probably developed it at the store. She couldn't have gotten this far along in 1 week.

I'm sorry about your little fishy, I hope it works out or at least she does not suffer too much.
