5 days ago I noticed a female cherry barb was insanely bloated, scales were sticking out and it anus was red, did some digging and came to the conclusion it was dropsy. At the time I thought for sure she was going to pass away reading other peoples stories. But to my surpise she is still alive, not bloated, and eating normally. Although she still has some "injuries" on her scales and a reddish anus. What happened??? I don't think water conditions had to do with it.
