Just a wild guess here, but once a fish gets dropsy, they aren't likely to recover, are they? At my work if a fish has it, they put it down. I have her in a 1gal QT rubbermaid with 1tsp aquarium salt, heater, and a bubbler. I gave her food but she wasn't too interested in it. She's been in there since last night, I had company over so I couldn't really do much else other than try to help her. Did a 100% water change tonight and will do so every night since she doesn't have a filter....I don't have a spare with a short enough tube for the shoe-box she's in. Anything else I could do for her? I have Melafix on stand-by, but I don't know if it would really help any. I'm more worried about her dying from starvation than dying from dropsy at this point.
