one of my bettas became ill with dropsy...where they swell up like a pinecone....and eventually die....
i've read everything about treatment.... and i have been treating her water with antibiotics.....then i've tried
herbal meds...then back to antibiotics...then a break from the meds....all the while, placing a bit of epsom salt
in the water, which is said to ease the bloating... ok.... after two weeks ... my little fish has not eaten a thing, but
is still alive and doesnt appear to be weak....but still very much bloated...i dont have the heart to deep6 her, but
was wondering, how long can a fish live without eating? any fish people out there~? thanks~!
