That looks like dropsy. I've never had any fish who've had it 9knock on wood). I believe it is bacterial. I'm sure there is an expert out there who can help.

how is she doing now?
I used the clove oil method. My 1st time putting down a fish, it was really sad but she just seemed to be suffering.

I am so sorry... I would probable have done the same though especially if she looked like she was suffering.
