If one got it, should I be concerned that something isn't right in my water? My tests came back pretty good today. I read it isn't contagious, but if one seemingly healthy fish got it, can't more get it?Bluestreakfl said:That's ultimately up to you. Ive only ever dealt with Dropsy once, it had taken one of my guppies. He hung in there for a few days and seemed "ok" , but finally I got home one day and he had just passed. Just provide the cleanest water you can, and like I said if he won't eat the peas try the epsom salt dip and see if maybe hes just really constipated. Losing that guppy was the wakeup call for me to include veggies and plant matter in my fishes diets more often, as well as fasting one or two feedings a week(I normally feed twice daily). I really think it helps not just digestive, but overall health.
I feel bad for my other gouramI I don't know the sexes, but they were besties for sure. Even now that the one is quarantined in the net, the other keeps trying to get to it. Before it was in the net it was always nudging it along trying to get it to move. If it dies idk what I'm gonna do.Bijou88 said:If it does turn out to be dropsy it's not contagious so it's really your choice. I'm sorry your gouramI isn't doing well, that's always hard I've had good luck the one time I had to do an Epsom salt bath and my fish recovered. I just dissolved 2 tsp salt in 1 gallon water and put her in there for about 20 minutes. She was pretty unhappy with me once she was back in her tank but it did help her immensely. Good luck to you, fingers crossed it's not dropsy.
