    2 gallon heated and filtered quarantine tank. Waterchanging every other day. I decided to make a thread specifically for her popeye. I adopted her because the pet store was going to try and treat her Popeye (and possibly dropsy?) With bettafix and I knew I could do better with a little research (and the help of the forum) because I have a whole first aid kit of meds. Two days ago I started her on Kanaplex for the dropsy and the Popeye, but her eye has only been getting worse. Her bloating has stayed the same, though she's possibly a little less prickly today (it's hard to tell because her scales are a gray with a black outline). So, for the bloating and Popeye, I'm going to try an Epsom salt bath and keep her on the kanaplex. However, I can't seem to find a consensus on what dosage of Epsom salt to use. Input?

    Here's a picture of her eye yesterday, it's only gotten worse:

    I'll try, she's just not very cooperative.

    Better to have it zoomed out and clear (you can do things like cropping and blowing it up to increase size) than a blurry closeup ;)
