  1. Last night I noticed tht bert's fin thingy was smaller and less red. This morning it's pretty much gone just a tiny speck left
  2. Thanks jess! I'll try that, but sometimes it wont let me do that either!! Thanks golden fishy!
  3. Okay! Thank you I am just letting the salty water cool before i add it to the tank I will update on bert tomorrow! I sure hope that the red thingy goes away soon.
  4. okay, sounds good I'm not supposed to have a youtube account, so i am uploading it to photobucket but photobucket hates me, and never lets me upload videos
  5. okay, video won't upload :( I'm sorry. i'll just try the salt and see if that works i guess
  6. urg. it is taking a really long time... i must have done it wrong. any ideas? it isn't making any progress.
  7. i took a video for you i'm just figuring out how to post it now
  8. From what you can see, is it something to be really worried about, or should salt fix it? I will get you a video later
  9. Oh hm. He is so wiggly, it's really hard to take pictures of him. I'll ask my dad if I can use his camera to make a video a little later. sorry about that! But it really isn't much to see, it just looks like a red glop on his fin.
  10. okay! Let me go try and take a picture. Would it be bad if i accidentally touch it? i think i will wait to salt until i do my wc tonight, in about an hour. sound good?
  11. actually, It isn't like there is a patch of red on his tail. It is more like there is a weird red blobby thing growing on his tail. It sticks out a bit edit- only 20 teaspoons? not 25?
  12. oops. Fail. it isn't on his tail! it's on his fin! Anyone wanna change the title for me? Doh.

  18. Hello! I'm sure this has been asked many times before, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I was looking through D&D threads, and I noticed how many people's fish were suffering from dropsy! It's really sad, stressful, and difficult to treat. So...how can dropsy be prevented? I'm sure many others on this forum would love to know the answer to this question, if there in fact is one. I found this quote by Helen: is that all there is to it? so if we clean our filters regularly, keep the gravel/sand clean, and clean the glass regularly, our fish won't get dropsy? That couldn't be it, right? What do you think? -Mandie
