  1. there is no blood smear? Around her lips is a littlr red from when she dislocated her jaw. The only other thing i can think of that you might be seeing is some outlines of her gills but it isnt red on the outside? I've noticed red only at the base of her fins.
  2. i am using an air bubbler because i dont have an extra filter. http://s628.photobucket.com/user/keepdancing/media/IMG_1388_zpsfbfd3b0b.jpg.html?filters[user]=90269567&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0 do you know whats on her dorsal fin Helen?

NLS pellets with garlic * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank? salt and prazi (both in quaratine) * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Nami has only ever had the jaw that she dislocated several months back, tashi was always the one with problems in the past. Prazi Salt Tri Sulfa? * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Nami had been flashing both yesterday and the day before yesterday when I turned the light on in the morning, but it was only when I turned on the light first thing in the morning and wouldnt do it for the rest of the day. Today I moved both fish into salt and prazi because I figured it had been a year since I did their last quaratine for flukes so they were due for another round. Once I was able to get everything situated and her being in a smaller tank i could tell that her scales were raised slightly, and I had specifically checked for that this morning before going to school and they werent because in my past experience its been dropsy that has gotten my fish so i always keep a good eye out for any sickness * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? When i was adding in the prazi i could tell that her gills were a little irriated and tashi did too but only for a little while, then she wouldnt move her mouth at all so i stayed and kept a close eye, then all of a sudden she went belly up and wasnt breathing, so i turned her right side up and kind of swayed her forward and back and she came back (never anything anyone wants to experience or see) and ever since then shes been good. I waited about ten minutes and decided to see if they would eat, and as soon as the food was in the tank she was on it. Now she is acting like her normal self just seems a little tired. The whole reason why im writing all this however, is that i know it is dropsy. Shes fat so you cant tell when you look at her from the front but above her you can tell. I went onto goldfish connection to get some metromeds since i dont have any and they are SOLD OUT, so i was wondering if i could buy some from someone who might have them. I just put the prazi and salt in today, but didnt notice her scales till after the fact. And i didnt want to change it today because she is acting normal now, but imput on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated
  14. ok...i guess ill try to find a vet then...
  15. Honestly if you can't tell from this video I don't know what to say. It's very obvious it's misaligned. I'm trying to take photos. But it is now getting red around the area. http://s628.photobucket.com/user/keepdancing/media/Mobile%20Uploads/trimr0MFSZ_zpsa6d0fdae.mp4.html
  16. I'm just really worried she might be in a lot of pain as it looks painful and she isn't as hyper as she was yesterday afternoon. I'm just really worried she might be in a lot of pain as it looks painful and she isn't as hyper as she was yesterday afternoon.
  17. The last time was beginning of February and no it's just her left side that is pinched and I'm positive it was after she took the pea because she started freaking out.
  18. When I look at it closely it looks like something is misaligned.
