I think my female guppy Caoimhe may have Dropsy. She is very bloated (I didn't notice that she looked or acted strange this morning, and I noticed that she was bloated when I went to feed her this evening), but she's so small that I can't tell if her scales are sticking out. If it wasn't for the very SUDDEN change in size and the particular changes in behaviour, I would probably think she was pregnant. I moved her into QT and have been observing her. Mostly she sits on the bottom upside-down. Sometimes she rotates. Literally flips over 360 degrees in any direction. While she is sitting still, her fins are still moving a bit. Has anyone had a similar situation? At the moment all the fish meds I have are aquarium salt, ich cure, and half a bottle of betta fix. I've put some salt in, hopefully it helps. If she survives the night, what would be the best thing to try to help her?
